OSHA 10-HOUR CARD - Construction and Safety Health
16-HOUR CERTIFICATE of COMPLETION - Roadway Construction Industry & Preventing Heavy Equipment Runovers and Backovers: Internal Traffic Control



This course, accredited by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), was developed by the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) in cooperation with the National Safety Council (NSC). The 12.3-hour curriculum is designed to directly address the common core safety and health hazards in the roadway construction industry. This program focuses on highway construction activities that are responsible for the majority of work zone fatalities and serious injuries.

The course material is geared toward roadway work zone construction supervisors and experienced workers. The program's design focuses on practical approaches to recognizing and controlling OSHA-identified construction hazards, accompanied with "hands-on" activities to reinforce the formal instruction.

This OSHA 10-Hour Course provides an overview of 11 key construction work zone-related safety and health topics. Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to recognize and take corrective action to address the following issues and hazards:
  • Roadway Work Zones (Temporary Traffic Control)
  • Personal Protective Equipment and High Visibility Clothing
  • Collisions between workers and vehicle operators
  • Night Work
  • Mechanized Equipment
  • Electrical Safety
  • Excavations and Trenching
  • Confined Space
  • Fall Prevention and Protection
  • Occupational Health and Environmental Controls


This is a comprehensive training program developed to minimize runover and backover incidents in roadway work zones. Course materials cover most information needed to develop and implement Internal Traffic Control Plans (ITCPs) on roadway construction sites as the primary means to reduce runovers and backovers. The target audience for the comprehensive program includes site workers, safety professionals and company safety officers, senior project managers, site superintendents and lead persons. The training is also valuable for roadway owners including traffic engineers and construction managers.

Upon completion of the full course, participants should be able to do the following:
  • Understand the functions and purpose of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and workers' and employers' rights and responsibilities
  • Explain the most common cause of death and injury for roadway construction workers
