Does OSHA 30 Hour Certification Expire?

The OSHA 30 hour training certification is ideal for professionals in the construction industry who are in supervisory roles. Those who wish to take additional training based on specific requirements and occupational hazards should take this course.

How Long is OSHA 30 Good For?

The small print on the back of the OSHA 30 card that is issued to students who clear the course explains that the OSHA 30 hour certification doesn't expire. That’s because according to OSHA, the courses are purely voluntary.

However, please keep in mind that renewal may be required in certain states and municipalities that have their own training criteria. In such a case, students will have to retake the OSHA 30 hour course since there is no such thing as a refresher course.

There’s a common misconception that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) certifies workers. They don’t. So if being “OSHA certified” is out of the question, what’s the next step for construction and general industry workers who need documentation of workplace safety training?

Basics of Outreach Training Programs

Instead of certifying workers, OSHA offers voluntary outreach training programs and authorizes trainers or training providers to deliver the 10-hour or 30-hour courses. Finishing the industry-specific program leads to the issuance of an official completion card from the comfort of your home.

Department of Labor (DOL)

OSHA DOL cards are widely recognized as training documentation, especially for states and jurisdictions that require workers to complete OSHA’s outreach training program.

Expiration of Course Completion Cards

Workers who have successfully completed the program will receive the OSHA 10-hour or 30-hour course completion card. Its validity varies depending on the industry:

  • Construction Industry
    • No expiration date
    • Must receive supplementary training depending on industry-specific hazards
  • General Industry
    • No expiration date
    • Must receive supplementary training depending on industry-specific hazards
  • Disaster Site
    • No expiration date
    • Must receive supplementary training depending on industry-specific hazards
  • Maritime Industry
    • Valid for 5 years (additional training required to retain validity)
    • Must receive supplementary training depending on industry-specific hazards

While the completion card does not expire, it is recommended to take OSHA outreach safety training every 4 to 5 years to stay updated with the latest safety regulations and industry practices. For complete training guidelines, workers are recommended to consult with local regulatory authorities.

Replacement of Course Completion Cards

Have you lost or damaged your 10-hour or 30-hour card? Contact your OSHA-authorized outreach training provider to obtain a replacement card. It is important to note, however, that the replacement card can only be issued to students who have taken the outreach program within the last five years. Only one replacement card can be given per student.

So make sure to request a replacement card before the 5th anniversary of your course completion date. What if you had taken the course more than 5 years ago? OSHA-DOL will not issue a replacement card. To receive a new and valid course completion card, you will have to take the corresponding OSHA outreach training program again.

The OSHA 30 hour training course is ideal for anyone who wishes to work as a site supervisor or manager in construction. It should be considered if you wish to climb the ranks. Entry-level construction workers will need to take OSHA 10-Hour Training.
