What Is OSHA 10 Training?
OSHA 10 training provides 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 your industry, you might need a different course. Typically, construction workers will need Construction training, and everyone else can take General Industry training.
The good thing is we have both courses! So no matter which course you need, we've covered you at OSHAcampus®. Plus, our classes are entirely online to fit your schedule, so you can avoid crowded classrooms.
OSHA 10 Online Outreach Training will help you:
- Spot, avoid, and report the safety and health risks on the job
- Know your employer's responsibility for workplace safety
- Learn the rights OSHA gives you and what to do if your workplace doesn't meet its safety obligations

What Is a DOL Card?
An OSHA (DOL) card is an official card that the US Department of Labor (DOL) issues to those who have completed an authorized 10-Hour Outreach Training Program. These cards are required in certain states and by many types of employers.
There are two different OSHA DOL cards, depending on your training type. The Construction DOL card is light yellow, and the General Industry is light blue. Watch the video below to find out how to get an OSHA DOL card for your company or yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How Do I Get an OSHA 10 Certification?
Though there is technically no such thing as ‘OSHA 10 Certification’, those who use the phrase are likely referring to an Outreach program. You can find a list of authorized trainers on OSHA.gov 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 Department of Labor will issue you an official card. These cards aren't mandatory everywhere, but your state or employer may require them. Please find out more about our program by watching our video.
Do I Need Construction Or General Industry Training?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration 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 the 10-Hour Construction Safety Outreach, with some workers may requiring additional training for specialized work.
General Industry is 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. However, there isn't a universal rule for the specific occupations requiring OSHA training, and regulations differ from state to state. Check for your state requirements here.
How Quickly Will I Get My DOL Card?
Most providers make you wait 6-8 weeks to get your 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 ensure your training is from an authorized provider, like OSHAcampus® by 360training.
How Do I Get Proof of Completion?
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 Does Taking the Online Training Work?
You can take all of our online courses conveniently from your home. With our self-paced courses, you can meet requirements anytime within a year of your purchase.
How Much Does It Cost?
The online 10-hour courses generally cost between $60 and $90. OSHA doesn't allow for much flexibility in the material covered so online safety courses will be roughly equivalent to each other.
How Many Questions Are on the Final Exam?
The final exam for the ten credit-hour courses is 40 questions long. You must achieve a score of at least 70% to pass.
How Long Is It Good For?
Though DOL cards don't expire at the federal level, some states or industries 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.
