EM 385-1-1
A 40-Hour Course Including OSHA-30 for Construction



What is EM 385-1-1 and how does it differ from OSHA regulations?
Engineering Manual (EM) 385-1-1 is a comprehensive set of safety and health standards required for all United States Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) activities and operation. Although OSHA and USACE EM 385-1-1 requirements are similar, there are key areas where EM 385-1-1 safety requirements are more stringent, detailed, and require a substantial amount of time to implement.


Who should receive EM 385-1-1 training?
EM 385-1-1 applies to the Department of the Army, Navy, and Air Force and their contractors. Contractors working at military installations, NAVFAC, Air Force, USCG, CIA, DOE and USACE projects must comply with the requirements of EM 385-1-1 and other agencies are incorporating this standard.

  • Construction Managers
  • Site Safety and Health Officers (SSHOs)
