OSHA 30-Hour Frequently Asked Questions

What Is OSHA?

OSHA stands for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. It is part of the U.S. Department of Labor and is tasked with assuring safe and healthy working conditions for men and women. OSHA establishes workplace safety standards and provides recommendations for safety training and education.

How Does OSHA Affect My Employment?

OSHA training will help you recognize whether or not your job site meets OSHA industry standards and determine if workplace conditions are safe. You have the right to a safe workplace under federal law and your employer is required to provide a workplace free of health and safety hazards.

You may file a confidential complaint with OSHA if you believe your working conditions are unsafe or unhealthy. You are also encouraged to bring the current working conditions to your employer’s attention. It is illegal for an employer to fire, demote, transfer or retaliate against you if you file a complaint. If you believe you have been retaliated against in any way, you may file a whistleblower complaint within 30 days of the alleged retaliation.

Is OSHA 30-Hour Training Mandatory?

OSHA training is a requirement for certain construction work in states like Connecticut, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York and Rhode Island. An employer can also require it even if it’s not mandated by the state.

What Is the Difference Between OSHA 10 and OSHA 30?

Unlike the OSHA 10-hour training courses which are beginner courses that provide workers with awareness of common job-related safety and health hazards, the OSHA 30-hour training is more appropriate for supervisors or workers with some safety responsibility that want to receive a more comprehensive training.

How Do I Complete an OSHA 30-Hour Course?

You can take the OSHA 30-Hour Construction and General Industry courses online. You may go at your own pace and are allowed to take up to six months to complete the training. However, most course takers finish the online OSHA 30 courses in as few as four days.

Is There Testing Throughout OSHA 30 Training?

Yes. At the end of each training module, you will be given a 10 question module quiz. You must score at least 70% on each quiz to move forward in the course. You will be given up to three opportunities to pass each module quiz.

After you have successfully completed all of the modules, you must pass a final exam to receive full credit for the course. The exam is 20 questions long and will test your knowledge on information covered throughout the course. You will be given up to three opportunities to pass the course and must make a score of at least 70%.

Are Study Guides and Other Training Resources Available?

Yes, you can purchase a PDF study guide that you can download and print to help you prepare for the final. There is also a free OSHA Training Practice Test available on our site. Both the course and exam are 100% online.

How Do I Earn a Department of Labor OSHA 30-Hour Card?

Only courses validated by the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Center can provide official Department of Labor OSHA Cards upon completion of the course.

Note that many people don’t need an official Department of Labor OSHA card. In these cases, a certificate of an OSHA course completion or a wallet card not provided by the DOT is sufficient. Check with your employer or state laws to see if you are required to have a DOL OSHA card.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a course completion training certificate. This can be presented as temporary proof while you wait for your official OSHA 30-hour card to be delivered by mail. When your card arrives, your completion certificate will no longer be necessary.

When Does My OSHA 30-Hour Card Expire?

Because OSHA 30-hour courses are voluntary, the course completion cards for construction and general industry do not expire. However, your state, private employer, municipality or government agency has the right to make an OSHA 30-hour course mandatory and set an expiration date for the card.

If this is the case, you will need to retake a current and valid OSHA 30-Hour Construction or General Industry Training course. Fortunately, we provide both the 30-Hour Construction and General Industry training courses online.

How Can I Get a Replacement Card?

The only person who can request a replacement card from OSHA for any student is the online OSHA 30-hour course provider who oversaw the course the student completed.

OSHA will not grant requests for replacement cards if the 30-hour course was completed more than three years ago. If you completed the course more than three years ago, you will have to retake the OSHA 30-hour course.

Are All OSHA 30-Hour Online Courses Valid?

No. There are some trainers who fraudulently represent themselves as authorized OSHA 30-hour trainers. There are also OSHA 30-hour courses that are valid but have not been officially approved by an OSHA Training Institute Education Center (meaning a Department of Labor OSHA card is not issued).

We offer the #1 trusted OSHA training program and are a market leader in authoring and delivery of e-Learning education and training to address transportation and workplace safety. U.S. employers will find this training useful in meeting their training obligations outlined in OSHA Standards 29 C.F.R. 1926.21(B)(2).
