10 and 30 hour OSHA Construction Training
The OSHA Outreach Training Program provides required training for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in the designated workplaces.
The two main OSHA training courses that are generally taken are the 10 hour OSHA construction training course and the 30 hour OSHA construction training course.
OSHA 10 – This course is designated towards entry level construction workers. Although OSHA does not directly require that you complete this training, many states and local jurisdictions require a minimum of 10 hours of OSHA training.
OSHA 30 – This course is designated towards individuals who have some sort of safety responsibility such as supervisors.
How do I become OSHA Certified?
Although there is no such thing as an OSHA certification, the closest thing to it is the OSHA Outreach training program which is provided by OSHA authorized training providers. After completing one of these training programs you are then issued an official Department of Labor OSHA 10-hour or OSHA 30-hour card.
Do I Need A Department of Labor OSHA Card?
If you’re a construction worker or seeking employment in the construction industry, chances are you will be required to receive an OSHA certification or OSHA card.
Certain states such as New York, Connecticut and Nevada require an OSHA card on certain projects. For example New York requires any worker employed on a public works project of $250,000 or more to receive an OSHA 10 card by completing the 10 hour OSHA course. For a full list on your individual states requirements please check out our state requirements page.
OSHA 10 or OSHA 30?
If you are an entry level construction worker then the OSHA 10 course should be sufficient for you, although the actual requirements may depend on what your employer wants. The OSHA 30 is generally recommended for managers or supervisors who may have some sort of safety responsibility. This course offers a more in-depth look into the topics covered in the OSHA 10 course but will also cover a wider range of topics.
