Do You Need to Take the OSHA 10-Hour Equivalency Course?
The OSHA 10-Hour equivalency course is recommended training for all construction workers, including boilermakers, carpenters, carpet layers, electricians, elevator mechanics, heavy equipment operators, insulation installers, masons and stonemasons, plumbers, pipefitters, sheet metal workers, tile workers, truck drivers, teamsters, and welders. The 10-hour course is intended to provide workers with awareness of common job-related safety and health hazards. The 10-hour course provides basic awareness training on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of workplace hazards.
This training is voluntary, although many companies require it as part of employment. Additionally, the following states have certain training requirements for particular employees (check with your state for details): Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and West Virginia.
The OSHA 10-Hour equivalency course provided by NET is not OSHA-authorized training but rather equivalent training and we do not provide the DOL card. This training does not necessarily cover all training requirements found in OSHA standards, and employers are responsible for providing additional training specific to their jobsite and employee responsibilities.
