Virginia OSHA Safety Training Courses
Virginia OSHA Training Requirements
In Virginia, 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 Virginia - 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.
Virginia Department of Labor
The Virginia Department of Labor and Industry (DOLI) - mission is to make Virginia a better place in which to work, live, and conduct business. DOLI achieves this goal by promoting safe, healthful workplaces, best employment practices, job training opportunities through registered apprenticeship, the protection of children from hazardous employment, and safe operation of boiler and pressure vessels.
The Virginia Department of Labor and Industry (DOLI) - Virginia Occupational Safety and Health (VOSH) Compliance Program is the Commonwealth’s counterpart to the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The Virginia Occupational Safety and Health Compliance (VOSH) Program conducts inspections of private and public sector employers to assure compliance with the laws, standards and regulations of the Commonwealth. The Compliance Program may issue citations listing violations of the standards and regulations to employers, determines dates by which violations must be abated, and may propose civil monetary penalties for certain types of violations (Public Sector employers are not issued such penalties).
The Virginia Department of Labor and Industry (DOLI) - Virginia Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) is designed to recognize and promote exceptional safety and health management programs. In VPP, the Department of Labor and Industry's Occupational Safety and Health Program (VOSH), management and labor establish a cooperative relationship at a general industry or public sector workplace that has implemented a strong safety and health program.
The Virginia Department of Labor and Industry (DOLI) - Asbestos Notification and Permit Program was established by the General Assembly in 1992 and codified at 40.1-51.20 to 51.22, as part of a larger state program requiring licensing and certification of asbestos contractors and workers by the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR). The 1995 General Assembly amended 40.1-51.20 to 51.22 and the accompanying DPOR laws to add identical requirements for lead removal contractors and workers.

Virginia OSHA Top Fatal and Nonfatal Injuries and Illnesses
According to latest data, the leading cause of workplace fatalities in Virginia was in the production, 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's Preventing Backovers webpage 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.
For more information, OSHA has a webpage that provides information about the top four hazards of the construction industry that lead to fatalities: falls, struck-by and caught-in/between, electrocal incidents, and trenching and escavation; 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.
