FAQs about OSHA 10 Training
What is OSHA 10 Training?
OSHA 10 Training is a safety education program designed to educate workers about the basics of occupational safety and health. The ’10’ denotes the total number of training hours required to complete the program. It covers various topics such as workplace hazards, employee rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint with OSHA. Successful completion of the course typically results in a valid OSHA 10-hour card, which serves as proof of training.
Who is required to take OSHA 10 Training?
OSHA 10 Training is primarily intended for entry-level workers in various industries such as construction, general industry, and maritime. Certain states and local jurisdictions have made it mandatory for workers to complete this training to work on public job sites. It’s also common for employers to require or encourage their staff to obtain the OSHA 10 certification to promote a safer working environment, even if it is not mandated by law.
How long is the OSHA 10 certification valid?
The OSHA 10 certification does not expire officially. However, because workplace safety standards and regulations can change, it is recommended that workers undergo retraining every 3-5 years. Some employers, unions, or jurisdictions may have their own renewal policies in place, requiring workers to retake the training within certain time frames to remain compliant with current safety practices.
