Overview & Objectives
The only OSHA-authorized online Cal/OSHA 10-Hour Training – Construction sites pose a number of health and safety hazards. This makes it extremely important for workers, managers, and other personnel to understand how to identify, avoid, mitigate, and prevent these dangers on the job. In addition to safety guidelines established by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the California construction workforce is also subject to more rigorous state-level standards issued by the Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH), commonly called Cal/OSHA.
To facilitate adherence to California OSHA standards, Cal/OSHA 10-Hour Construction allows workers to receive training via a hassle free online course, and upon completion workers will receive a certificate of completion right away and earn their Department of Labor (DOL)/OSHA 10-Hour Card shipped within two weeks. This card enables the recipient to seek or maintain employment in construction within the state of California.
