What is OSHA 10?
OSHA 10 is one of OSHA's Outreach courses, designed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration but supplied through third-party training providers.
It's a 10-hour introduction to workplace safety topics, including U.S. workers' rights and employers' obligations. There are several types of OSHA 10 courses by industry. OSHA 10 Construction addresses the standards that apply to construction work, found under 29 CFR 1926.
When you complete an OSHA 10 course, you get a plastic wallet card issued by the Department of Labor. This is often called an OSHA 10 card (or more generally, a DOL card).
What's the Difference Between OSHA 10 and 30?
For each industry's Outreach program, there's an OSHA 10 and an OSHA 30.
OSHA 30 is a 30-hour version of the training program that includes information about supervisory responsibilities and expands the number of task-specific safety awareness topics. These arms supervisors – including safety directors, foremen, managers, field supervisors, and crew leads – with the extra information they need to comply with workplace safety requirements.
OSHA 10 is the shorter version designed for non-supervisory workers.
What Is an OSHA 10 Card Good For?
OSHA designed its 10-hour Outreach courses to serve as an orientation to workplace safety for non-supervisory workers. It's a consistent but flexible training program that can be tailored to the worker's environment and job.
OSHA 10 doesn't fulfill or replace required OSHA training, but many employers require an OSHA 10 card because it gives everyone a solid foundation to build on. This is especially true in Construction, which has one of the highest incidents of occupational injury, illness, and death.
Aside from employer requirements, sometimes an OSHA 10 card is a legal requirement for Construction work. These laws are constantly changing, but you legally need an OSHA 10 Construction card in:
- Nevada (effective January 1, 2010)
- Philadelphia, PA (effective October 1, 2015)
- Connecticut (for certain public projects)
- Miami-Dade County, FL (for certain public or private projects)
- Massachusetts (for most public projects)
- Missouri (for public projects)
- New Hampshire (for certain public projects)
- Rhode Island (for certain public projects)
- West Virginia (for certain public projects)
For all these reasons, an OSHA 10 card can also be a good investment for a construction worker looking for a job. Many employers will give hiring preference to candidates with a DOL card, even if they don't require it.
How Long Is an OSHA 10 Card Good For?
As far as OSHA is concerned, OSHA 10 cards don't expire. However, jurisdictions or employers that require it typically set a refresher period (often 3-5 years).
Since the refresher period varies, your DOL card will simply have an issue date, not an expiration date. You can use the issue date to check whether your OSHA 10 card is still valid for your needs.
