OSHA offers tips on finding authorized trainers, avoiding fraud

Agency sees Increase in fraudulent activity surrounding its training courses

Posted September 27, 2018

Citing a recent increase in fraudulent activity related to its 10- and 30-hour training courses, OSHA offers the following reminders:

  • Only OSHA-authorized trainers may teach 10- and 30-hour safety courses and issue OSHA student course completion cards.
  • OSHA publishes a public list of authorized trainers to help workers find legitimate training and avoid fraud.
  • Completing an OSHA training course does not guarantee employment, and the public should beware of ads guaranteeing jobs after course completion.
  • While OSHA does not require completion of its 10- and 30-hour courses, the Agency may require other training for workers that encounter certain workplace hazards.

The Agency asks the public to contact the Department of Labor’s Office of Inspector General if they come across fraudulent activity.
