Safety continues to be examined under a microscopic lens, and OSHA training has proven to be successful when it comes to reducing fatal four incidents on job sites across America.

As OSHA’s influence on building safer job sites continues to strengthen, we are seeing more and more interested contractors looking to have their teams trained with OSHA10 and/or OSHA30.

 

What is OSHA?

The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) was called together in 1970 by the United States Congress in response to poor workplace safety requirements. OSHA is governed by the United States Department of Labor. Lead by the Secretary of Labor, who is a member of the cabinet of the President of the United States is, OSHA’s mission is:

 “To assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education, and assistance.” – OSHA

What is OSHA10?

OSHA10 is a 10-hour construction safety course that is built to teach recognition, prevention, and avoidance on the job site.

Upon completion of the 10-hour course curriculum and a passing grade of 70% (maximum 3 tries) a worker obtains their OSHA10 card allowing them to work on job sites where OSHA10 is a prerequisite.

 

What is OSHA30?

OSHA30 is a 30-hour construction safety course that is built to teach recognition, prevention, and avoidance on the job site.

Upon completion of the 30-hour course curriculum and a passing grade of 70% (maximum 3 tries) a worker obtains their OSHA30 card allowing them to work on job sites where OSHA30 is a prerequisite.

In contrast to OSHA10, the OSHA30 material is much more in-depth and the course curriculum covers many portions on safety that OSHA10 does not.

 


What is the difference between OSHA10 and OSHA30?

OSHA-Certification

In the table below, the differentiating portions of OSHA 10 and OSHA30 have been identified in green and red.

  • The red text means the material is NOT covered in OSHA10.
  • The green text shows the extra materials that ARE covered in OSHA30.
