There is an old saying that “Money is what makes the world go around,” and while this may be true, another driver we have in the grant world is training hours. Training hours documentation is how we prove that we are reaching the workforce with the valuable training that our worker trainers provide. And the more training we can document, the more efficient and cost effective our training programs are. So you can see how important this process is.
So you probably have a few questions. Let’s see if we can answer them:
WHO should turn in these hours?
Anyone who is currently an authorized TMC Trainer. In the OSHA programs, that is anyone that has completed a USW-TMC facilitated OSHA Train the Trainer Class.
WHAT hours should be turned in?
Not only is this for OSHA 10 and 30 hour classes, but also any OSHA related safety and health topic. Some examples of these would be fork truck training, hazard communication, etc. If you train in an “in house” safety program, that is acceptable as well. While we could list many more types of training, it is important to understand that the basic criteria are that the hours are OSHA and the topics are safety related.
