OSHA Updates Security on Training ID Cards

Wednesday, June 2, 2010

Comment | More

Faced with a growing counterfeiting problem, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has quietly incorporated new security features into the wallet cards issued upon completion of training.

OSHA trainers issue the cards to students upon completion of OSHA’s 10- and 30-hour Outreach training courses.

Because several states and many general contractors are now requiring an OSHA 10-hour or 30-hour card for workers on certain construction sites, there has been an explosion of cases where counterfeit cards were provided or sold to workers or their employers,  the agency reports.

The new 10-hour cards are the same size and colors as before: blue for general industry courses and gold for construction courses. The 30-hour cards are a darker version of gold (Construction) and blue (General Industry).

The cards also bear a large “10” or “30” watermark, depending on the course completed. In addition, the old nine-digit serial number has been replaced by a two-digit number, followed by a hyphen and a nine-digit number. This allows the card to be tracked back to the trainer who issued it. OSHA trainers will also be required to maintain a list of their student names and serial numbers.

Finally, a warning on the back of the card notes that fraudulent distribution of the card is a federal offense.

The changes affect cards issued in live and online classes. The older versions of the card will still be accepted as valid.
