Questions About OSHA 30?
At Hawkeye Safety Training, we cover everything you need to know about health and safety in the construction industry. Topics range from regulations to remaining compliant and what to do if an inspector shows up at a job site. Below are commonly asked questions and good-to-know items before signing up for the class.
Benefits of In-Person OSHA Training
There are several companies offering online training to construction workers. For people who struggle to find the time to attend classes in-person, this may seem like an excellent idea. However, as many senior managers in construction will tell you, it’s best to attend your classes in person. The construction industry can be one of the most dangerous fields to work in, in America. Through training, you learn to protect not just your own safety but that of your workers.

For many construction workers, OSHA training classes can become a networking opportunity. Learning alongside colleagues from larger or more established companies may pave the way for career opportunities if you make a good impression.
Get the Right Answers
One of the major downsides to learning online is that it is impersonal. Most platforms involve moving through slides or pre-recorded course material. If you have a question, you may need to send an email or there may be no avenues for asking that question at all. In a classroom setting, you can get immediate answers from an instructor.
Learn From Others
When people learn in isolation, they often suffer from the worst type of groupthink. The only questions they may ever get the answers to are their own. When in a classroom setting with others, you have the opportunity to learn from answers to questions other people ask that you might have never even thought of.
Ask anyone who works from home or attends online college classes. The biggest obstacle they face is remaining focused. Homes are often filled with people and items that make you happy. This makes it a haven for distractions. These may range from children playing to the urge to watch TV. Giving in to these can cause you to take a much longer time to complete training than if you attended classes.
OSHA 30 Construction Learning Objectives
When you sign up for the OSHA 30 Hour class, there are specific objectives the course must meet. This is important for not just preparing you for construction safety, but also remaining compliant. Here are some of the main objectives to keep in mind:
- Identify why an incident investigation may take place at your site and what preventative measures it may lead to in the future.
- Recognize what lifesaving and protective equipment are most appropriate for specific situations or work assignments.
- Identify major hazards at construction sites and put safety measures in place to protect workers.
- Understand the role management plays in creating a work culture that prioritizes safety.
- Identify what an employer’s responsibilities are under OSHA.
- Recognize what worker rights are protected under OSHA.
The Differences Between the OSHA 10 and OSHA 30 Courses
Like any other industry, construction has a hierarchy of workers. Everyone who works in construction should understand the importance of health and safety. They should also know at least the basics of how to keep themselves and their colleagues safe. However, the people they report to have an even greater responsibility to protect themselves and the entire workforce.
OSHA 10 and OSHA 30 are designed with these differences in mind. Most workers only need to complete OSHA 10 training to learn about safety procedures. Workers that are responsible for others need to complete OSHA 30 to become familiar with additional safety requirements they may have as a manager or employer.
Details Regarding OSHA 30 Certification
To ensure you meet the course objectives, training institutes do administer a test before providing your OSHA card. Some training companies may feature tests with up to 100 questions, while others may include as few as 10 questions. If you do not pass the test on the first try, speak with your instructor about re-testing. Some trainers may place a limit on how often you can retest with them.
After you have passed the test, you will receive your card. In most cases, you can receive one immediately. Note that your card will not expire. Even so, to ensure you keep up with industry standards and safety practices, your employer may require that you retake the course every three to five years.
If you lose the card at a later date, reach out to the organization that trained you for a replacement. Note that as per OSHA, the company can only issue a replacement card if you completed the course with them in the past three to five years. In addition to this, they can only provide one replacement card per student in a class.

In some U.S. states, completing OSHA training is mandatory for construction jobs. For workers who travel across the country, obtaining that OSHA certification before it’s necessary may save them from unnecessary trouble later on. Even in states where OSHA 30 is not mandatory, your employer may require you to successfully complete the course.
