All contractors who bid on municipal and state construction projects with a total project cost of $100,000 or more must provide an OSHA 10-hour construction safety program for their on-site employees in order to be awarded the contract.

Trainers must document that they have been authorized through the federal OSHA Outreach Training Program to conduct the 10-hour construction safety program training.

Every contractor employee must carry a card issued by OSHA certifying his or her successful completion of the OSHA 10-hour training program at all times while work is actually being performed on municipal and state construction projects. Such employees are not authorized to transfer their certification card to another person.
