As an OSHA Authorized Trainer, our 10 and 30 hour safety training class students will receive the new laminated and more secure Construction card. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has introduced more durable and secure completion cards for its Outreach Training Program, including 10-hour and 30-hour safety classes. The new cards are intended to reduce fraud and improve efficiency.
OSHA has created 10 and 30 hour basic safety courses tailored to construction, maritime, and general industry, as well as 15-hour classes for disaster site workers. They cover the basics of workers’ rights and OSHA protections, and describe how to identify, avoid and prevent workplace hazards. The courses are not required by OSHA, although some cities and employers do require workers to complete them.
The classes are taught by independent consultants authorized by OSHA and trained through the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Centers. At the conclusion of each course, students receive completion cards which are proof of completion for employers.
