Takeaway: OSHA Training isn’t required by the government in Texas, but there’s plenty of reason to take it

OSHA Training in Texas

map on OSHA Training Texas pageOSHA 10 hour training and 30 hour training (as well as other OSHA Accepted training) are not mandated by the State of Texas, although many employers do require such training, especially larger construction firms.  Since Texas is such a huge state, with over $50 billion a year in construction work, demand for OSHA 10 and 30 hour construction training especially is high, whether administered on site or taken online.

And it wouldn’t surprise us to see more firms requiring such training.  According to a 2010 study, Texas is the most hazardous state in America for workers, and at some point 1 out of every 5 workers will require hospitalization for an injury on the job.  Many of these accidents are related to small, fly-by-night contractors cutting safety corners, but it certainly makes a good case for improving safety training for all workers.  (A national news report on this situation appeared in April 2013 titled “Construction Booming In Texas, But Many Workers Pay Dearly“)

Surprisingly, for such a dangerous workplace reputation, Texas doesn’t have its own occupational safety department.  The state agency with the most enforcement power in worker safety regulation is the Division of Worker’s Compensation, part of the Texas Department of Insurance.   Naturally OSHA also maintains offices in the state to address concerns of workers and employers (office addresses are at the bottom of the page).
