What Is OSHA Hazard Recognition Training?

OSHA Hazard Recognition Training covers important OSHA regulations and hazard identification techniques for the construction and general industries. This training consists of 10- and 30-hour courses provided by American Safety Council and results in an OSHA training card.

What Is an OSHA Outreach Training?

An OSHA Outreach Completion Card is an official completion card issued by the US Department of Labor (DOL) to authorized trainers to give to students who have completed authorized OSHA Outreach Training programs.

What’s the Difference Between OSHA Cards and Department of Labor Cards?

A separate OSHA completion card is given to students who complete OSHA online trainings not tied to the Department of Labor or Outreach Trainings.

Do I Need a Department of Labor OSHA Card?

Many workers do not need an official DOL card to remain OSHA compliant—you most likely just need to complete an OSHA training to stay safe at work. Unless your employer requires an official DOL card for an Outreach Training class, the temporary certificate of completion and OSHA wallet card you get through the OSHA Education Center are sufficient.

How Do I Get a DOL OSHA Card?

DOL OSHA cards are provided after completing OSHA Outreach Training. OSHAEDUCATIONCENTER.COMSM offers training courses that provide an OSHA card to show certificate of completion, but this is not an official DOL card.

Whether you take an authorized Outreach Training Course or a regular OSHA course through the OSHAEDUCATIONCENTER.COMSM, you will get your OSHA card after you successfully complete a training and meet the minimum test score requirements.

The DOL 10- and 30-hour cards can only be issued by an authorized OSHA trainer and are property of the student who completed the course.

For students taking a regular OSHA online training course through the OSHAEDUCATIONCENTER.COMSM, you will get your OSHA Education Center Wallet Card a couple of weeks after you successfully complete your training. You will have a temporary certificate of completion to prove you passed the course until your card arrives.

How Long Does It Take for My DOL OSHA Card to Arrive?

Since OSHA cards must be processed through the Department of Labor, your card may take up to eight weeks to be delivered to your mailing address.

Types of Department of Labor OSHA Cards

There are five types of DOL OSHA Cards that are given to students who complete an OSHA Outreach Training Program:

  1. OSHA 10 card
  2. OSHA 30 card
  3. OSHA trainer card
  4. Disaster Site Trainer card
  5. Maritime Standards card

Are OSHA Cards Necessary?

Depending on your state or employer, you might be required to present proof that you completed an OSHA online training course. A temporary certificate of completion will be provided to you while you wait for your official OSHA card to arrive. Your OSHA card will serve as proof that you completed an OSHA training.

How Do I Get a Replacement Card?

OSHA cards may be replaced within five years of completing your OSHA course.

Will My OSHA Card Expire?

The Department of Labor does not set an expiration date on OSHA cards. However, you may be required to renew your training, which you can do online at American Safety Council.

What Is the OSHAEDUCATIONCENTER.COMSM?

The OSHAEDUCATIONCENTER.COMSM is an online education and training program given by American Safety Council for OSHA-inspired construction and general industry hazard recognition. US employers will find training through this site useful in meeting their training obligations outlined in OSHA Standards 29 C.F.R. 1926.21(B)(2).
