Who is required to take the OSHA 10 Hour Course?

All workers (it doesn’t matter what they’re working on) employed at any public works construction site.

What constitutes a “construction site”?

Any project contracted with the State worth over $10,000.  If you can find a construction project worth less than $10,000 you’re in the clear.  (Good luck with that one.)

Does this requirement apply to supervisors?


What do contractors have to do?

If you’re the contractor on the job, you need to certify in writing that all employees have been properly trained.  You are also required to make sure any subcontractors have fulfilled the requirement.

How quickly to workers have to get the training done?

Workers are supposed to have the training from day one on the site.

How are employers suppose to certify in writing that they are compliant?

The employer has to submit proof of completion for each worker with their first certified payroll report.  For salaried workers who are not paid in a way that they show up on the CPR, the employer has to provide a list with proof of completion.
