In addition, this Section 3 does not create any private right of action on the part of any third party.

4. OSHA 10-HOUR COURSE

The OSHA 10-Hour courses offered by CareerSafe are regulated by the United States Department of Labor Occupation Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). As an OSHA-authorized online provider, CareerSafe must ensure that students follow the guidelines dictated by OSHA.

AVAILABLE IN THE UNITED STATES ONLY. Due to OSHA regulations, OSHA 10-Hour training may only be conducted within the United States of America, its territories, and the District of Columbia. Students will need to provide a mailing address located within the U.S. to complete the OSHA 10-Hour training.

SEAT TIME REQUIREMENTS. To complete the OSHA 10-Hour course, OSHA requires that the student log no less than ten (10) hours of time in the required course content. Additionally, a student may not complete more than seven-and-a-half (7.5) hours of training in a single calendar day. Therefore, a minimum of two days is required to complete the OSHA 10-Hour course.

180-DAY COMPLETION REQUIREMENT. Per OSHA regulations, a student must successfully complete the OSHA 10-Hour course within 180 days of their start date. 

365-DAY. Seats for all of our OSHA 10-Hour courses, as well as all of our other courses and site licenses, will expire 365 days after purchase.

REQUIREMENTS FOR COMPLETION. To complete an OSHA 10-Hour course, a student must:

  • complete all required training topics;
  • spend the required amount of time in each topic;
  • log at least ten (10) hours of time within the course content;
  • pass the final exam with a score of 70% or higher within a maximum of three (3) attempts; and
  • complete the mandatory course survey.

FAILURE TO PASS THE FINAL EXAM. If a student is unable to attain a passing score on the OSHA 10-Hour course final exam after three attempts, a CareerSafe representative may “reset” the course (clearing all prior course progress), and the student will be required to retake the entire course again, including passing the final exam within three attempts. Each student is allowed a maximum of one (1) retake. 

OSHA CARD ISSUANCE. An OSHA 10-Hour Outreach Student Card is issued to the student upon successful completion of the course. For users who purchased the seat for themselves (i.e., individual), CareerSafe will mail the OSHA card to the mailing address defined in their CareerSafe User Properties. For users who were given a seat another user purchased (e.g., high school student, employee), CareerSafe will mail the OSHA card to the address of the trainer associated with the seat the student used to complete the course (e.g., teacher).

SHIPPING METHOD. Standard shipping of the OSHA 10-Hour Outreach Student Card is via United States Postal Service (USPS). Due to OSHA requirements and processing time, it may take up to four (4) weeks for a card to be delivered; however, most cards are delivered within seven to ten (7-10) days after course completion.

NEVER RECEIVED CARD. CareerSafe makes every effort to get a student’s OSHA 10-Hour Outreach Student Card delivered successfully. However, CareerSafe is unable to guarantee delivery due to the many steps of card delivery that are outside our control (e.g., U.S. Postal Service, mail handling at the delivery address, trainers distributing cards, etc.). If 1) a student does not receive their initial card within thirty (30) days after shipment; 2) the student notifies CareerSafe within ninety (90) days of the course completion date; and 3) it is determined that non-delivery was due to an error by CareerSafe; then CareerSafe will reissue the outreach card to the student for free, and it will not count against the one OSHA-allowed replacement card.

OSHA 10-HOUR CARD REPLACEMENT. If an OSHA 10-Hour Outreach Student Card is destroyed, stolen, or otherwise lost, the student may purchase a replacement card for a fee of $30. The replacement will be sent via USPS with tracking and will count as the single replacement card allowed by OSHA regulations. A replacement card for a misspelled student name or a legal name change does not count against the single replacement card allowance but does require the student to pay the replacement card fee.

Note that, per OSHA regulations, a reprint cannot be issued if the original course completion date is more than five (5) years from the reprint request date. If it has been greater than five years, the student must retake the OSHA 10-Hour course to obtain a new OSHA 10-Hour Outreach Student Card.

5. OSHA 30-HOUR CONSTRUCTION COURSE

The OSHA 30-Hour Construction course offered by CareerSafe is provided through a partnership with AdvanceOnline Solutions, Inc. (“AdvanceOnline”). AdvanceOnline is regulated by the United States Department of Labor OSHA. As an OSHA-authorized online provider, AdvanceOnline must ensure that students follow the guidelines dictated by OSHA.

The following requirements are a combination of OSHA guidelines, AdvanceOnline policy, and CareerSafe policy. In some instances, CareerSafe is unable to make accommodations due to OSHA or AdvanceOnline policies, regardless of need.

AVAILABLE IN THE UNITED STATES ONLY. Due to OSHA regulations, OSHA 30-Hour training may only be conducted within the United States of America, its territories, and the District of Columbia. Students will need to provide a mailing address located within the U.S. to complete the OSHA 30-Hour training.

SEAT TIME REQUIREMENTS. To complete the OSHA 30-Hour course, OSHA requires that the student log no less than thirty (30) hours of time in the required course content. Additionally, a student may not complete more than seven-and-a-half (7.5) hours of training in a single calendar day. Therefore, a minimum of four days is required to complete the OSHA 30-Hour course.

180-DAY COMPLETION REQUIREMENT. Per OSHA regulations, a student must successfully complete the OSHA 30-Hour course within 180 days of their start date. After that time, the course seat expires, and the student must purchase a new course seat.

365-DAY. Seats for our all our OSHA 30-Hour courses, as well as all our other courses and site licenses, will expire 365 days after purchase.

REQUIREMENTS FOR COMPLETION. To complete an OSHA 30-Hour course, a student must:

  • complete all required training topics;
  • spend the required amount of time in each topic;
  • log at least thirty (30) hours of time within the course content;
  • pass each topic exam with a score of 70% or higher within a maximum of three (3) attempts;
  • pass the final exam with a score of 70% or higher within a maximum of three (3) attempts; and
  • complete the mandatory course survey.

FAILURE TO PASS A TOPIC OR THE FINAL EXAM. If a student is unable to attain a passing score on any of the individual, OSHA 30-Hour exams after three failed attempts, a CareerSafe representative may “reset” the course (clearing all prior course progress), and the student will be required to retake the entire course again, including repeating all previous content and retaking all exams. Each student is allowed a maximum of one (1) retake of the course. A course reset does not restart the OSHA-mandated 180 days to complete the course.

OSHA CARD ISSUANCE. An OSHA 30-Hour Outreach Student Card is issued to the student upon successful completion of the course. For users who purchased the seat for themselves (i.e., individual), CareerSafe will mail the OSHA card to the mailing address defined in their CareerSafe User Properties. For users who were given a seat another user purchased (e.g., high school student, employee), CareerSafe will mail the OSHA card to the address of the trainer associated with the seat the student used to complete the course (e.g., teacher).

SHIPPING METHOD. Standard shipping of the OSHA 30-Hour Outreach Student Card is via United States Postal Service (USPS). Due to OSHA requirements and processing time, it may take up to twelve (12) weeks for a card to be delivered; however, most cards are delivered within two to three (2-3) weeks after course completion.

NEVER RECEIVED CARD. CareerSafe makes every effort to get a student’s OSHA 30-Hour Outreach Student Card delivered successfully. However, CareerSafe is unable to guarantee delivery due to the many steps of card delivery that are outside our control (e.g., U.S. Postal Service, mail handling at the delivery address, trainers distributing cards, etc.). If 1) a student does not receive their initial card within thirty (30) days after shipment; 2) the student notifies CareerSafe within ninety (90) days of the course completion date; and 3) it is determined that non-delivery was due to an error by CareerSafe; then CareerSafe will reissue the outreach card to the student for free, and it will not count against the one, OSHA-allowed replacement card.

OSHA 30-HOUR CARD REPLACEMENT. If an OSHA 30-Hour Outreach Student Card is destroyed, stolen, or otherwise lost, the student may purchase a replacement card for a fee of $50. The replacement will be sent via USPS with tracking and will count as the single replacement card allowed by OSHA regulations. A replacement card for a misspelled student name or a legal name change does not count against the single replacement card allowance, but does require the student to pay the replacement card fee.

Note that, per OSHA regulations, a replacement card cannot be issued if the original course completion date is more than five (5) years from the request date. If it has been greater than five years, the student must retake the OSHA 30-Hour course to obtain a new OSHA 30-Hour Outreach Student Card.

6. EDUCATION PRICING

CareerSafe offers education pricing to institutions that meet certain criteria.

OSHA COURSES EDUCATION PRICING. For our OSHA 10-Hour and OSHA 30-Hour courses, CareerSafe offers per seat Education Pricing to educational institutions serving K-12 students. Postsecondary and educational institutions not serving K-12 students are not eligible for Education Pricing.

OSHA CARD SHIPMENT. The OSHA 10-Hour & 30-Hour Outreach Student Card associated with OSHA course seats bought at the Education Price will be shipped in batches to the mailing address of the trainer associated with the seat the student used to complete the course (e.g., teacher). Shipping the OSHA cards directly to each student individually is not permissible at the Education Price.

OSHA REPLACEMENT CARDS. CareerSafe provides Education Pricing on replacement card fees ($15 per replacement card) for OSHA 10-Hour Outreach Student Cards. To qualify, the original seat used by the student to take the corresponding OSHA 10-Hour course must have been purchased at the Education Price. Education Pricing for OSHA 30-Hour replacement cards is not available.

SCHOOL LICENSES. For K-12 education institutions only, CareerSafe offers a School License model that allows a single, physical school an unlimited number of seats to courses within a Course Library (e.g., Employability Skills). This one-time, School License price allows all the students within a single school access to all training within the Course Library.

The School License provides access for the entire school year. The end of the school year is defined as June 30 in which the current school year ends. For example, a School License purchased on August 21, 2022, is good for the 2022/2023 school year and therefore would expire on June 30, 2023. Another example would be a School License purchased on March 9, 2023, which would be good for the remainder of the 2022/2023 school year and therefore the license would expire on June 30, 2023.

To qualify for a School License, an organization must be an elementary, middle, or high school (i.e., serving K-12 students) and the School License may only be used by a single school. Sharing a single School License amongst several schools or across a district is not permissible, and may result in the license being immediately revoked and access terminated.

7. PURCHASE ORDER PAYMENT TERMS

CareerSafe allows educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, and pre-approved businesses to purchase training with a purchase order.

NET 30 REQUIREMENT. Payment is due within thirty (30) days of the date of invoice. If the customer believes the invoice is incorrect, they must notify CareerSafe in writing before payment is due to be eligible to receive an adjustment or credit.

PAST DUE. Customers with outstanding invoices that are more than thirty (30) days past due will not be permitted to purchase with a purchase order until the delinquent invoices are paid in full. CareerSafe may suspend or terminate services, at its sole discretion, with or without notice to the customer if any payment is more than sixty (60) days delinquent.

OSHA CARDS NOT SENT UNTIL PAID. Course seats will be issued after CareerSafe processes a purchase order. However, the OSHA 10-Hour Outreach Student Card that is issued after successful completion of an OSHA 10-Hour course will not be shipped until the associated invoice is paid in full. Orders for reprints of an OSHA 10-Hour Outreach Student Card paid by purchase order will be processed immediately.

PRE-APPROVED BUSINESS TERMS. To be eligible to place orders with a purchase order, a customer must be an educational institution, nonprofit organization, or a pre-approved business. For a business to obtain pre-approval, they must register with CareerSafe (at contracts@careersafeonline.com) and pass a business credit check.

8. SALES TAX

All orders will be subject to state and local sales tax and shall be collected from the Customer unless the Customer provides a valid tax-exemption certificate to CareerSafe. To register with CareerSafe as a tax-exempt organization, please email accounting@careersafeonline.com and provide your organization name, point of contact information, and attach a valid tax-exempt certificate. It may take up to 3-5 business days to process and validate tax-exempt certificates.

The tax rate applied to your order will be the combined state and local rates of the address to which your order is shipped. If shipped to address is unavailable, the billing address will be used for the calculation of sales tax.

9. REFUNDS

Under certain conditions, CareerSafe will provide the Customer a refund of their purchase. Please refer to the Refund Policy for more information.
