EM 385 Training

Military contract or project workers should take this online training course provided by OSHA.NET to understand the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Safety and Health Requirements manual. This manual is commonly referred to as Manual No. 385-1-1. It’s important to read EM 385-1-1 to understand the range of requirements, project management addendums, bids, service, payment, supply, research, and development, all under the umbrella of USACE (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers).

EM 385-1-1 can also be considered a refresher course for many other courses offered, such as specialized certification in certain sections of EM 385-1-1. Any workers who will require specialization or certification in EM 385-1-1 disciplines will find the information in this training invaluable. This course can also be used to help understand other training courses.

EM 385 Training for Military and Non-Military

This mandatory training provides knowledge for military and non-military contractors, safety leaders, project managers, or employees. This course uses the real-life experiences of workers, who have expressed their experiences and comprehension of the subject being learned. By learning about these real-life examples, you will be able to use this information in your work, going forward.

This course teaches program management and emergency planning and protocol. These aspects are highly valuable. In order to be compliant with the standards of EM 385-1-1, an outline of Accident Prevention Plan (APP) or Project Safety and Occupational Health (SOH) Plan need to be outlined by program managers (PM).  The program manager also needs to implement these plans, so all stakeholders are aware. This training covers potential liabilities and will help deter company violation, employee injury, and compliance.
