As this is an Outreach Training program, you will receive an OSHA 10 completion card issued by the U.S. Department of Labor on the successful completion of this course. This card will be provided by UL EHS Sustainability.

Answer: Within 8 weeks of course completion.
Answer: No, the OSHA 10 Card does not expire. However, it is recommended to renew the OSHA 10 Card every 3-4 years as OSHA often changes its regulations, and this will ensure all workers are updated on the latest developments. There could also be a possibility that some employers may not accept an OSHA 10 Card that is older than 5 years.
  • Although the OSHA 10 Card does not expire, it is recommended to re-take the OSHA 10 Outreach training every 3-4 years to remain updated as OSHA changes/updates its regulations frequently.
  • Some employers may have their own renewal requirements, so this may require you to re-take the course as per their specifications.
  • Some states also require construction industry workers to re-take the OSHA 10 Outreach training and renew their OSHA 10 Cards. So, construction industry personnel employed in these states must follow state renewal requirements for the OSHA 10 outreach training and the OSHA 10 Card. For instance, New York state requires construction industry personnel to renew their OSHA 10 outreach training every 5 years.

A replacement card can only be issued for a course taken within the last five years and only one replacement card may be issued per student per class.

To obtain a replacement OSHA 10 Card please contact UL EHS Sustainability.
