Frequently Asked Questions

What is an OSHA DOL card?

The official OSHA DOL Card is a plastic, wallet-sized card issued after the successful completion of an accepted OSHA Outreach program course. AdvanceOnline currently offers the OSHA 10-Hour Construction Safety course, the OSHA 30-Hour Construction Safety course, and the OSHA 10-Hour General Industry Safety course. The OSHA DOL Card is commonly referred to as an OSHA Card or a Completion Card. Please note that only students within OSHA's jurisdiction (the 50 States and certain U.S. Territories) may receive a DOL card.

How do I get an OSHA DOL card?

You will receive your plastic official OSHA DOL card as soon as two (2) weeks after you complete your OSHA Outreach course and survey. The card is mailed via USPS First Class to the mailing address in your account profile. Once you successfully complete the course a pop-up will appear and you can print or download the certificate of completion to your computer, smartphone, or tablet. While you're waiting for your DOL card to arrive, you can use the certificate of completion as proof you have successfully completed the course.

What are the OSHA Outreach Program courses?

OSHA implemented an Outreach Training Program that has proved highly successful in reducing the number of on-the-job accidents. According to OSHA, the Outreach Program is their "primary way to train workers in the basics of occupational safety and health". Our OSHA 10- and 30-Hour Construction Safety or OSHA 10-Hour General Industry courses are online versions of OSHA's successful program. The courses are designed to provide instruction on a variety of construction safety and health standards.

OSHA recommends Outreach Training Program courses as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers. Workers must receive additional training, when required by OSHA standards, on the specific hazards of the job.
AdvanceOnline is the first of only eight authorized providers of OSHA's Online Outreach Training program.  Visit OSHA's site, OSHA-Authorized Online Outreach Training Providers. to learn more
