Wisconsin OSHA Safety Training Courses
Wisconsin OSHA Training Requirements
In Wisconsin, 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 Wisconsin - 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.
Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD)
The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) primary responsibilities include providing job services, training and employment assistance to people looking for work, at the same time as it works with employers on finding the necessary workers to fill current job openings.
The Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene’s WisCon Program, as part of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Labor, offers on-site consultation services to assist Wisconsin employers in meeting the obligations and responsibilities covered under the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics/Occupational Safety & Health Statistics (BLS/OSHS) unit, part of the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene (WSLH), collects occupational injury, illness and fatality data for the State of Wisconsin.

Wisconsin OSHA Top Fatal and Nonfatal Injuries and Illnesses
According to latest data, the leading cause of workplace fatalities in Wisconsin 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'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.
