That is exactly what I went through! Between the pretest (that won't let you advance to the next page until choose the right answer) and the quiz after each module, I kept putting it off until I only had 30 days to complete the course. I was actually shocked I let it lapse for 5 1/2 months.


You really need to be in the right state of mind in order to complete the course. I've found my mind was more open to absorb the information from 3 a.m. - 10 a.m. than, 9 p.m. - 11 p.m. This morning, I had to go to OSHA.com to define which section in 1926 is the answer to the multiple choice pretest questions in the workshops.


Fortunately, I have two modules left in which, I will complete tomorrow and, I will see my card coming in the mail within 2 weeks.

I just wanted to correct my error. Upon passing the final exam, it takes 6 - 8 weeks to receive your OSHA Card in the mail.



The American Safety Council stated you need to take their Survey in order to receive the OSHA card. So don't forget to take their Survey upon completing the Final Exam if you use the American Safety Council to acquire your OSHA 30.



It appears the answers you got wrong in the Quiz are the questions they ask you on the Final Exam. So keep some Cliff notes throughout the course.




Good Luck!

I remember the "Work Lead Safe" course years ago given by Kachina. It was such a joke that nobody in the real world could follow it. I only had to use it once in 10 years. The people who complain about using AFCI should take the LEAD course and see what real stupidity is. The working with LEAD safely law that is.

I encourage people to get the 30. It can land you a safety job in the right situation.

OMG I'm 7 hours in on the OSHA 10 course. I want to shoot my brains out. This information is a joke. Other certifications I had to get in the past had some useful information buried in it. This course is for a 10 year old going to his first construction site. I could not fathom what the OSHA 30 class would include. The OSHA 10 has to basically repeat it self and re-explain things to make up the allotted time.

Safety is the way of life. Honestly I think a new standard should be created, OSHA 100 which would expire on ODD years. OSHA 10 and 30 should be combined into OSHA 40 which will be like a learner's permit while working up to your OSHA 100

Can you get some certificate showing that you went your whole career without having to F**K with any osha certificates or other stupid safety classes ever?


I'm just about ready to take my test for that...............

No, but you can have a kid out of college with a stupid major come onto your jobsite with a safety job title and tell you about something that he has absolutely no experience with.

They take safety seriously in Washington DC. Armed safety police patrol the job sites, and will write you a violation on the spot. They probably have safety court, and safety jail too.

Small rant:

One of the things I get all the time from young kids or safety officers. "Is that safe cutting like that", when I'm cutting conduit or strut with one hand on the material, one hand on the bandsaw. NOTE: band saw is on the ground pivoting like a chop saw cutting through material. NOTHING is below the material except the floor. Its like they think the saw is going to jump 3 inches to left and cut my finger off. They think you have to put everything on a damn vise before cutting it or something. It's not like I'm cutting conduit on my lap sitting Indian style (oops I meant, criss-cross-apple sauce for the politically correct) with the material over my lap or standing with the material on my leg. Damn snow flakes are driving me nuts.

And while I'm all for everybody coming home in one piece, I swear that some day you'll have to fill out a report documenting or requesting a trip to the bathroom. How are you feeling today? Did you move your bowels yesterday?

You have to realize that if you are on one of these "safety jobs" it's usually an arrangement where the owner is paying for the Workmans Comp.
This means that if the job is safe and has little to no injuries, the owner stands to make a significant buck on the program.
This is also a savings for your employer.
These programs are all set up and in place to make money. If you are stubborn or want to cause problems, you will usually be asked to leave the site.
It's best to learn what is expected and to do what you were hired to do.

Its not a snowflake program or a babysitting service. It's a business decision. Don't be offended, learn the rules and how to operate within those rules.

I’m rarely on large construction sites so that’s where I’m coming from. That said, if I knew I was going to be, I realize I’d have to take the class. Years ago I got apprehended by the ladder police and sent to re-education camp for the day. Was working as an employee, not looking for trouble, but also didn’t know the rules of the game.

You know what I hate? Customers who have twenty coconut palms and don't bother ever to harvest the damn things . Talk about safety issues. But I never saw any safety officers around those places........

What you say about the business part of it is true. However, the fact remains that the jobsites are still filled with a bunch of snowflakes who don't know the first thing about safety.

Would you hire an electrical foreman who never worked on a jobsite before and only had classroom training? Would your veteran journeymen respect him?
