What Are the Benefits of an OSHA 10 Card?
Acquiring an OSHA 10 DOL card proves to employers that you have completed 10 hours of OSHA-authorized training on critical workplace safety topics. Entry-level workers with this credential have industry-specific knowledge and skills that help prevent injuries and keep workplaces safe and productive.
Do OSHA 10-Hour Cards Expire?
Your OSHA 10 card will never expire, but your employer may require you to retake the course every three to five years to refresh your knowledge and stay up-to-date with OSHA safety standards. If your OSHA card was issued more than five years ago, some employers may not accept it.
What is Fire Watch Training?
Fire watches are used to prevent and/or extinguish fires at the incipient (beginning) stage. They monitor the hot work sites to ensure that conditions do not change when combustible materials cannot be effectively removed, protected or shielded. Fire watches also require specialized training and are assigned to minimize damage that may be caused by a fire. If a fire occurs, they take appropriate actions to protect all workers.
