The Safety Online Network’s 30-hour OSHA course covers the use of explosives in the workplace, basic hand and power tools, cranes and rigging, fire protection for construction and lead safety in the workplace. After enrolling, students have six months to complete the course.

ClickSafety’s online courses include both the 10- and 30-hour OSHA courses. OHSA requires that students in both classes score 70 percent or higher on the final safety test, with a maximum of three chances, to receive certification.
