Overview

This instruction provides guidance and direction to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) National, Regional, and Area Offices concerning OSHA's policies and procedures for training of Compliance Safety and Health Officers (CSHOs). It is essential that CSHOs have the requisite knowledge, skills, capability and varied professional backgrounds to accomplish OSHA's mission of promoting safe and healthful working conditions for America's working men and women. In this instruction, OSHA has provided detailed guidance for training required during the initial three-year period of a CSHO's career, including recommended training that assists the CSHO with preparation for professional certification exams. This instruction identifies training paths that provide assistance to the regions in managing their training programs. The goal of this instruction is to assist CSHOs and their supervisors with direction, guidance and training options that directly contribute to the CSHO's ability to represent OSHA with a high degree of professional expertise. In addition, the CSHO training program identifies a correlation between CSHO competency and achieving respected credentials in the fields of safety, health and construction such as Certified Safety Professional (CSP), Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) and Certified Construction Health and Safety Technician (CCHST®). This instruction describes the revised training program for OSHA compliance personnel and supersedes TED 01-00-012, Training Program for OSHA Compliance Personnel, dated July 7, 1992. Changes include: Each newly-hired CSHO will be required to complete a minimum of eight courses offered by the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) during the first three years of his/her career as a CSHO. The order and sequence of these courses are as prescribed in this instruction. The OTI training program offers Regional Administrators the opportunity to incorporate up to four additional technical courses into the CSHO's initial three-year training plan. Each CSHO and his/her supervisor will be required to track progress throughout the initial three-year period. An Individual Development Plan (IDP) will be updated annually. The IDP (Form DL-80) will be used as a planning and tracking document for reference by the CSHO and his/her supervisor to ensure that the CSHO receives all required training. A time extension policy has been added and the waiver policy has been clarified. Appendix A has been revised and expanded. Appendix A combines formalized training with self-instruction and on-the-job training recommendations in a comprehensive format. Supervisors and CSHOs will find this a useful tool for planning and sequencing professional development during the first year of the CSHO's career. Appendix B has been added to provide supervisors with recommended CSHO self instruction and follow-up on-the-job training to reinforce OTI training provided in years two and three. Appendix C lists OTI courses that are required or recommended in OSHA directives as a quick reference guide. This reference may be used to assist supervisors and CSHOs in developing IDPs for continuing professional development. Appendix D provides information to assist supervisors and CSHOs determine which OTI courses could help prepare a CSHO for the Certified Construction Health and Safety Technician (CCHST®), Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) or Certified Safety Professional (CSP) professional certification exam.
