"OSHA 30" is the Outreach training intended for those with supervisory duties, including safety directors, forepersons, and field supervisors. This 30-hour course covers a more extensive range of topics, as supervisors need to know the rules for everyone working under them.
General Industry is perfect for manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, healthcare, and other medium/high-risk industries.
Do I Need Construction Or General Industry Training?
Who Needs Construction:
You require OSHA Construction training if you’re a construction worker or a contractor. OSHA includes all work for construction, alteration, repair, painting, and decorating in its construction category.
Some construction workers may need additional training for specialized work, and anyone with supervisory responsibilities should take OSHA 30-Hour Construction Safety Outreach Training. Watch our OSHA 30 construction video below.
Who Needs General Industry:
General Industry is much broader. It includes, but is not limited to, healthcare, manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, and retail. For more specialized work, OSHA requires specific training. Examples include when working in confined spaces, operating heavy equipment, and working with hazardous chemicals.
How Do You Get An OSHA DOL Card?
You can earn an official DOL card by completing an OSHA Outreach training program. Instead of providing training itself, OSHA lays out the rules for these programs and approves third parties to administer the education. These third-parties, like 360training, undergo a rigorous training process.
In selecting an OSHA training provider and DOL card, make sure they are "OSHA-authorized." You can confirm their credentials on OSHA's website.
How Long Is OSHA Training Good For?
DOL cards don't expire at the federal level. However, some states or industries have particular recurrence requirements. Even if they don't, we recommend you renew your training every 3-4 years to stay up to date with any OSHA regulation changes.
