Pennsylvania - Philadelphia OSHA Training Requirements

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania City Code (effective Sept. 2015) requires OSHA 10hr and 30hr safety awareness training for construction workers and supervisors:

  • All workers directly performing construction or demolition activities for which permits have been issued are required to complete OSHA 10 safety training or an approved equivalent. (Philadelphia Code, Title 4, Subcode A, Section A - 1001.4). This requirement applies to all employees of licensed contractors (including plumbing, electrical, fire - suppression and warm - air contractors) AND State - registered Home Improvement Contractors. Workers will be required to furnish proof of required safety training to Department of Licenses and Inspections officials upon request.
  • All contractors licensed under Section 9 - 1004 of the Philadelphia Code must employ at least one supervisory employee who has completed OSHA 30 safety training,or approved equivalent, within the past 5 years.

For other jobs in Pennsylvania, some companies require their employees to take OSHA training in order to be qualified to perform certain duties. However, whatever industry you work for in Pennsylvania - taking an OSHA Training Course is a low cost investment that rewards you with essential job safety practices that could one day possibly save your life. Most workplace accidents and injuries are preventable, so that's why more workers are taking a proactive step towards occupational safety training. (Choose course in right column.)

HAZWOPER Training Required
The Federal OSHA HAZWOPER Standard (29 CFR Part 1910.120) - requires that all employees that are exposed to or handle hazardous materials must take a 24hr or 40hr HAZWOPER Training Course and an 8hr Annual Refresher, at a level required by their job function and responsibility, before they are permitted to engage in hazardous waste operations that could expose them to hazardous substances.

Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry

The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry helps workers and businesses make their worksites safer; upholds standards for minimum wages, and gathers occupational data and information.

The Pennsylvania Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) program provides annual information on the rate and number of work-related injuries and illnesses, and how these statistics vary by industry, geography, and other characteristics.

Pennsylvania employers who want help in recognizing and correcting safety and health hazards and in improving their safety and health programs can get it from a free consultation service largely funded by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The service is provided through the PA/OSHA Consultation Program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

City of Philadelphia - License and Inspections promotes Code compliance through education, consultation, responsiveness to public complaints, building plan reviews, licensing and permitting processes, on-site inspections, and enforcement actions.

OSHA Labor Data - Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) - State Occupational Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities (IIF) Program - provides annual information on the rate and number of work-related injuries, illnesses, and fatal injuries, and how these statistics vary by incident, industry, geography, occupation, and other characteristics. This data is collected through two BLS programs:
  • SOII - BLS Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses
    The SOII provides estimates for nonfatal cases of work-related injuries and illnesses from 46 States and Territories that are recorded by employers under the Occupational safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) recordkeeping guidelines.
  • CFOI - BLS Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries
    The CFOI publishes data on fatal cases of work-related injuries for all States, Territories, and New York City.

For more information, check out the BLS State Occupational Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities - Labor Programs and State data.

Pennsylvania OSHA Top Fatal and Nonfatal Injuries and Illnesses

According to latest data, the leading cause of workplace fatalities in Pennsylvania was in the transportation and material moving occupations (Source). The main type of these fatalities is the vehicle backover (i.e., when a vehicle backs up and strikes a worker behind the vehicle).

For more information on backovers, OSHA has a webpage that provides information about the hazards of backovers; solutions that can reduce the risk or frequency of these incidents; articles and resources; and references to existing regulations.

As with most states, the leading causes of private sector worker deaths (excluding highway collisions) in the construction industry were falls, followed by electrocution, struck by object, and caught-in/between.
Source: OSHA Common Statistics Summaries

Falls deaths are preventable by a safety training class that covers 29 CFR 1926.500 - Subpart M – Fall Protection and deals with both the human and equipment-related issues in protecting workers from fall hazards.
