Why do I need a U.S. address to take your OSHA course?

OSHA has placed restrictions on Outreach Training Program classes. The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) is a Federal agency within the United States. The agency covers workers and employers in the 50 states and certain territories and jurisdictions under federal authority. Those jurisdictions include the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Wake Island, Johnston Island, Panama Canal Zone, and the Outer Continental Shelf Lands as defined in the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act.

OSHA training programs such as the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Center program and the Outreach Training Program are intended for workers covered under the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act of 1970 within the Agency's geographic jurisdiction.

For this reason, OSHA Outreach Training Program classes must be limited to training conducted within OSHA's jurisdiction. Classes delivered outside of OSHA's jurisdiction will not be recognized as Outreach Training Program classes, and trainers will not receive student course completion cards for those students.
