OSHA 30 refers to a special type of training provided by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The students need to attend 30 hours of training, in which they learn how to recognize, prevent and respond to hazards at the workplace.
The 30 hours of training ensure an in-depth study of various subjects related to the hazardous situations that are often encountered while working with certain materials, equipments, substances or on certain construction sites.
At the end of each class, students have to take a quiz. They can take the quiz three times, and in order to pass it, they need to get at least 70% grading. At the end of the course, students are required to take the final exam. This exam is made up of 30 questions and, again, it needs at least 70% of correct answers in order to be successful. The students have 3 attempts to pass the final OSHA 30 exam. In case they fail all three attempts, they have to restart the entire training.
If they pass the final exam, students receive a temporary card to certify that they have successfully graduated from the course. The official card is issued within 6-9 weeks from the successful completion of the course and passing of the final exam.
