What is OSHA 10 Training?

What is OSHA 10 Training?

An OSHA 10-hour training course is a course with two options for either construction or general industry. It is intended to teach basic health and safety practices. The course contains ten hours of information regarding workers’ rights, employer responsibilities, hazard recognition, safety procedures, how to file a complaint, etc.

OSHA 10-hour training courses are intended for entry-level workers and are not specific to any job site. Not all occupations, states, and employers require entry-level workers to take this course. Even if you are not required to take an OSHA 10-hour course, it is highly recommended that you do anyway so that you can educate yourself on basic safety principles. For more information including covered topics in the course check out our Ultimate Guide To OSHA 10 Training And Certification.

What is OSHA 30 Training? How is it different from OSHA 10?

What is OSHA 30 Training? How is it different from OSHA 10?

OSHA 30-hour training is a course much like OSHA 10 but is intended for supervisors or employees who manage safety in the workplace. It covers basic safety information and training on how to recognize, report, and handle hazards in the workplace.

It also delves into the specific roles of supervisors regarding the health and safety of the employees they will be working with.

How Do I Get My DOL Course Completion Card?

Need your Department of Labor card?

You can get a temporary certificate today and your OSHA card in 2 weeks.

DOL student course completion cards are small, wallet-sized, plastic cards showing that you are certified in a particular topic. These cards are issued to everyone who completes an OSHA 10 or OSHA 30 course. When you receive your card, you should carry it on your person at all times while working. It is proof to your employer that you have completed the OSHA 10 and/or 30 course.

Students will receive a temporary, online certificate (issued by 360training.com) upon completion of an Outreach Training Program. After the mandatory reporting process, the card is printed and mailed to the student within 2 weeks.

Are DOL Cards The Same As OSHA Cards?

Are DOL Cards The Same As OSHA Cards?

Yes, Department of Labor (DOL) Cards are the same as OSHA cards that are obtained through the OSHA Outreach Training Program. They are official cards issued by the United States Department of Labor to anyone who completes an OSHA 10 or 30 course through the OSHA Outreach Training Program.

Cards received elsewhere are simply referred to as OSHA cards because they are not directly issued by the U.S. Department of Labor.

What is the OSHA Outreach Training Program?

What Is Covered In An OSHA 10 Course?

The OSHA Outreach Training Program was created in 1971 and works to make safety training more readily available. The program is voluntary and not directly run by OSHA. This means that the program is made up of certified trainers who provide training classes for specific topics either in person or online.

All courses in this program teach about workplace hazards, workplace safety, and workers’ rights.

What Is Covered In An OSHA 10 Course?

As stated above, OSHA 10 courses cover a lot of basic safety information that is not specific to any single workplace. Some information you can expect in the training includes:

  • The General Duty Clause: This clause states that all employers must provide a work environment free of known hazards that cause death or serious injury. Understanding this clause helps you understand the obligation that employers have to follow OSHA standards and train you adequately for the work you will be doing.
  • Hazard Communication: This includes the training and safety program that an employer should establish to prepare you to work with or around workplace hazards. Hazard communication will help you prevent injury and illness from physical, chemical, and ergonomic hazards.
  • Common Hazards: This includes the types of hazards that could be present in the workplace, what causes them, and how to prevent them. These hazards can differ between general industry and construction, but a lot of the common hazards will be present in both industries.

What's Covered in a OSHA 10 General Industry Training?

What's Covered in a OSHA 10 General Industry Training?

  • Personal protective equipment (PPE): You will learn about how and when to use PPE, including safety glasses, gloves, boots, respiratory equipment, and fall protection.

What's Covered in a OSHA 10 Construction Training?

What's Covered in a OSHA 10 Construction Training?

Most of the topics discussed in the OSHA 10 general industry course will also be covered in the OSHA 10 construction course. The biggest way the two courses differ is that the construction training is presented in the context of a construction workplace rather than the factory or warehouse setting that is usually associated with general industry. In addition to the general industry topics, the construction industry course includes:

  • Electrical safety: You will learn the safe procedures and controls for handling electrical equipment.
  • Safety data sheets: You will learn about the importance of safety data sheets (SDS), signs, and labels regarding chemicals present in the workplace.
  • Hierarchy of controls: You will learn the hierarchy of controls and how they pertain to the safety measures taken to control or prevent hazards. The most effective of these controls is elimination, and the least effective is PPE.

There aren’t any other OSHA 10-Hour courses other than the OSHA 10 construction and OSHA 10 general industry courses. It is possible that there are safety training courses that will take ten hours to complete, but they are not necessarily referred to as an OSHA 10 course.
