Entry-level workers should complete 10-hour training. Supervisors and safety professionals should complete 30-hour training. 30-hour courses provide a more in-depth level of training that is important for anyone in a manager-level position to be aware of.
The 10- and 30-hour construction courses are designed for those in the construction and demolition industry. Workers in any other industry should complete 10- or 30-hour training for general industry. Examples of general industry workers include those in health care, manufacturing and warehousing.
Our North Carolina OSHA courses combine 10- or 30-hour OSHA Outreach training with three hours of additional training on state-specific safety and health standards.

OSHA is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. At the federal level, OSHA creates standards that ensure safe and healthful working conditions for workers across the country.
Some states, such as North Carolina, have created State Plans. These plans are OSHA-approved workplace safety and health programs that the state individually operates. North Carolina OSHA is one of those plans.
The NC OSH Division of the North Carolina Department of Labor is responsible for enforcing all OSHA standards in North Carolina. Compliance officers inspect workplaces and issue citations for violations of standards. For more information about NC OSH and the work they do, visit the North Carolina OSHA State Plan page.
The OSHA Outreach Training Program teaches workers how to identify and avoid common safety and health risks in the workplace. It also explains employer responsibilities and workers' rights under OSHA. This training is available in industry-specific versions for construction and general industry.
The 10-hour courses are designed for entry-level workers, and 30-hour courses are designed for supervisors and workers with safety roles or responsibilities.
Once you have successfully completed NC OSHA training and OSHA-authorized Outreach training, you can instantly download and print your certificates of completion. You can provide the certificates to your employer as proof of training completion while you wait for your OSHA card to be delivered.
The Department of Labor will mail you your official plastic OSHA DOL wallet card approximately six to eight weeks after you complete your training.
