The OSHA 30 Hour Construction Industry Outreach Online Training course is designed for construction industry workers with safety-related job responsibilities. The purpose of this course is to provide such workers with a greater depth of understanding and knowledge of workplace safety and health hazards and best practices to prevent or minimize accidents and injuries at construction sites and to construction workers.

The OSHA 30 Hour Construction Industry Outreach Training Program will also provide information on what OSHA requires of you and your employees, including information about hazard communication, GHS, safety inspections, and recordkeeping.

This 30 Hour OSHA Outreach Training Program is voluntary, meaning, it does not meet the training requirements contained in any OSHA standard. However, some states and local jurisdictions, employers, and unions have designated OSHA Outreach Training as mandatory for workers to fulfill their desired safety training goals.

Training Requirements

There are no prerequisites to this course.


It is important to remember that this OSHA 30 Hour Construction Industry Outreach Online Training Program provides more detailed information and knowledge on the occupational safety and health hazards and safe work practices for preventing workplace injuries, illnesses, and fatalities. Employees may also need additional site-specific and hands-on training when required by OSHA standards.

It is ultimately the responsibility of the employer to provide adequate training to employees depending on their job type and experience and to meet OSHA requirements in the process.

Frequently bought together
Answer: Workers in the construction industry who are responsible for the safety and health aspects of workers and the worksite. Such personnel include foremen, supervisors, safety managers, safety assistants, and other workers who require more in-depth training.
Answer: If you are responsible for the health and safety of construction workers, then it is important to be familiar with the health and safety hazards that are prevalent in such workplaces. The OSHA 30 hour construction industry outreach online training is designed to give more in-depth information than the OSHA 10 hour construction industry outreach online training on job-related hazards, safe work practices to avoid or minimize these hazards, and the procedures for filing a complaint to report unsafe working conditions.

This course does not cover any OSHA regulatory standards. It is a voluntary OSHA outreach training program for the construction industry and provides training for workers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in their workplace.

This training will help participants develop a general understanding of the OSHA 29 CFR 1926 standards to prevent construction-related injuries and accidents.

Answer: The OSHA 30 Hour Construction Industry Outreach training offered by UL EHS Sustainability is a 30 hour training. However, it will likely take you longer than the 30 hours that OSHA requires to complete this course considering the time spent completing interactive activities, taking post-tests, reviewing job aids, and reading supplementary information.

After enrolling for this course, you can complete the course on your own schedule and at your own pace. However, as per OSHA rules, after you launch this course for the first time, you must finish it, including the survey, within 6 months.

Please note that OSHA only allows for 7 ½ hours of training in a 24-hour period.

Answer: As this course is offered in collaboration with UL EHS Sustainability, the refund policy will be that which is offered by UL EHS Sustainability. Please check their website FAQs for more details.

Yes, you can download a course completion certificate once you have successfully completed the course and scored 70% or higher on your final exam.

As this is an Outreach Training program, you will receive an OSHA 30 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 30 Card does not expire. However, it is recommended to renew the OSHA 30 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 30 Card that is older than 5 years.
  • Although the OSHA 30 Card does not expire, it is recommended to re-take the OSHA 30 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 workers to re-take the OSHA 30 outreach training and renew their OSHA 30 Cards. So, personnel employed in these states must follow state renewal requirements for the OSHA 30 outreach training and the OSHA 30 Card. For instance, New York state requires personnel to renew their OSHA 30 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 30 Card please contact UL EHS Sustainability.
