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.

However, some employers may require you to complete refresher training every few years to ensure you are up to date on workplace safety and health protocols. You should speak to your employer for more information on refresher training requirements.
