OSHA-authorized trainers issue student course completion cards to individuals who successfully complete an OSHA Outreach Training Program class. The Outreach Training Program offers 10-hour or 30-hour classes for Construction, General industry, Maritime, and a 15-hour class for Disaster Site Worker. To obtain an OSHA card, an individual must attend and successfully complete the entire class, including all requisite topics and the minimum number of contact hours.
The training courses do not meet the training requirements for any OSHA standards. An OSHA card is not considered a certification or license and is not required by OSHA. However, some states have enacted laws mandating the training. Some employers, unions, organizations or other jurisdictions may also require this training.
