OSHA 10 training provides you with a general overview of job-related health and safety hazards. It's ideal for entry-level workers who don't have any supervisory responsibilities.
Furthermore, depending on what industry you work in, you might need a different course. Typically, construction workers will need OSHA 10 Construction, and everyone else can take OSHA 10 General Industry.
The good thing is we have both courses! So no matter which OSHA course you need, we've got you covered. Plus, our courses are completely online to fit your schedule, so you can avoid crowded classrooms.
What is an OSHA 10 Card Good For?
An OSHA 10 (DOL) card is an official card that US Department of Labor (DOL) issues to those who have completed an authorized OSHA 10-Hour Outreach Training Program. These cards are required in certain states and by many types of employers. There are two different OSHA 10 cards depending on which type of OSHA 10 training you take. The 10-Hour Construction DOL card is light yellow, and the 10-Hour General Industry is light blue. Watch the video below to find out how to get an OSHA DOL card for your company or yourself.

How do I Get OSHA 10 Certified?
Though there is technically no such thing as "OSHA 10 certification", those who use the phrase are likely referring to OSHA's Outreach program. You can find a list of authorized trainers on OSHA's website to help workers like you find a legitimate training provider (Note: 360training is on this list).
If you pass a course from an authorized training provider like us, the DOL will issue you an official 10-Hour card. These cards aren't mandatory everywhere, but they may be required by your state or employer. Find out more about OSHA Outreach Training by watching our video.
Do I Need Construction Or General Industry Training?
OSHA defines "construction work" as work for construction, repairs, painting, and decorating. Generally, you will need OSHA Construction training if you’re a construction worker or a contractor.
All entry-level construction workers need OSHA 10-Hour Construction Safety Outreach Training, with some workers may requiring additional training for specialized work.
General Industry refers to any industry not included in construction, maritime, or agriculture. Some examples are healthcare, manufacturing, cosmetology, automotive, and warehousing. All employers must conduct basic workplace safety training.
Low-risk industries don't require anything as thorough as the OSHA 10 Hour course. However, there isn't a universal rule for the specific occupations requiring OSHA training, and regulations differ state by state. Check for your state requirements here.
How Quickly Will I Get My DOL Card?
When you complete an OSHA Outreach training program, instead of receiving a certification or certificate, you earn a DOL card. This shows employers that you've met your OSHA training requirements, and they can let you on the job site.
Most providers make you wait 6-8 weeks to get your DOL card. We make sure your DOL card arrives in 2 weeks so that you can get to work fast.
And to ensure you're selecting the right course, always make sure your training is from an OSHA-authorized provider, like 360training. You can confirm our credentials on OSHA's website.
How Do I Get Proof of Completion While I Am Waiting for My DOL Card?
After completing your course, return to your "My Training" page and click the certificate icon. From here, you can view and print your temporary certificate of completion.

How Many Questions Are on the OSHA 10 Final Exam?
The final exam for OSHA 10-Hour courses is 40 questions long. You must achieve a score of at least 70 percent to pass.
How Long Is OSHA 10 Good For?
Though OSHA 10 DOL cards don't expire at the federal level, some states or industries do have specific frequency requirements. For those that don't have renewal requirements, we still recommend you renew your training every 3-4 years to keep up with any updates to OSHA regulations.
