Basic Orientation Plus®
Basic Orientation Plus® was created by the Association of Reciprocal Safety Councils (ARSC). ARSC was originally formed to address the need for uniform and consistent training of contract workers in the petrochemical plant environment. However, ARSC programs are now used in many industrial environments. Basic Orientation Plus® is a reciprocal contractor safety awareness training program that was designed to meet the classroom training requirements of the standards listed in the Code of Federal Regulations as enforced by the U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) in the components it covers. (The rules and regulations referenced in this orientation are from the Code of Federal Regulations, 29 CFR 1910 and 29 CFR 1926 [OSHA]). Basic Orientation Plus® prepares the student to perform various duties in the safest possible manner. Upon successful completion of the course and testing, the student will receive a Basic Orientation Plus® badge that lists the training and its expiration date. Training may be verified by owners and contractors through the Basic Orientation Plus® secure online database.
