Who Needs OSHA 30-Hour Training?

OSHA 30-hour Outreach training is designed for supervisors and workers with some safety responsibilities. Although OSHA does not require workers to complete this training, your employer may list the OSHA 30 DOL card as a mandatory job requirement.

In addition, specific states, cities and local jurisdictions require Outreach training for certain jobs and projects. Your employer is your best resource if you have questions about whether OSHA 30 training is required for your job.

OSHA 30 Frequently Asked Questions

Is OSHA 30 training mandatory?

That will depend on your location and your employer's training requirements. OSHA Outreach training is a voluntary program, but certain employers, states and local jurisdictions have specific training standards that include 30-hour OSHA Outreach training.

How do I get OSHA 30 certified?

OSHA does not actually certify workers who complete 30-hour OSHA training, but employers may still say that you need to be OSHA certified. Typically, these employers want to confirm you completed 30 hours of OSHA-authorized training. Graduates of this course receive an official OSHA 30 card from the U.S. Department of Labor, which you can provide as proof that you completed your training.

How long does it take to complete OSHA 30 training online?

To earn your OSHA 30 card, you need to complete 30 hours of OSHA-authorized safety training. Fortunately, online OSHA training allows you to finish the program at your own pace. Because OSHA does not allow students to train more than 7.5 hours per day, it will take at least four days to complete the course.

What if I have questions about the course content?

If you have questions about any course topics or need additional clarification, you can email our OSHA-authorized course trainer and receive a response within 24 hours. You will receive the course trainer's email address after registering for the course.

Yes. To complete the course and earn your OSHA 30 card, you must pass a brief quiz at the end of each lesson and a 20-question final exam. The minimum passing score for each quiz and the final exam is 70%.

Does the OSHA 30 card expire?

No, OSHA 30 cards do not have an expiration date. However, your card will list the date it was issued to you. Your employer, state or local jurisdiction may require you to retake the course every three to five years to ensure you are up to date on the latest OSHA safety guidelines.
