Who Needs OSHA 10-Hour Training?
OSHA 10-hour training is designed for entry-level workers in construction or general industry who do not have a supervisor role or specific safety responsibilities. Supervisors and safety professionals are often required to complete OSHA 30-hour training.
Employers across a variety of industries require workers to complete OSHA Outreach training and earn an official DOL card. Certain states, cities and local jurisdictions have also made this training mandatory. However, OSHA does not require this training for all workers, and completing the course does not guarantee employment.
Which OSHA 10 Course Should I Take?
When you register for your course, you must choose between construction and general industry. Both versions cover industry-specific hazards you're likely to encounter on the job, so you should select the version that best matches the industry in which you work.

What Is an OSHA 10 Card?
Many employers require their workers to earn an OSHA card. This refers to the card you receive after completing a 10- or 30-hour OSHA Outreach Training course. The OSHA 10 card is a plastic, wallet-sized card that is issued by the Department of Labor.
Earning an official OSHA 10 card in construction or general industry proves to employers that you have completed 10 hours of specialized workplace safety training.
What Will I Learn in the OSHA 10 Course?
Both versions of the OSHA 10-hour course explain your rights under OSHA and your employer's responsibilities related to workplace safety. You'll learn how to recognize, avoid, mitigate and prevent hazards.
