Authorized OSHA Trainers in Maryland
There is no official certification required to teach most OSHA training classes in Maryland. But, you must make certain that on site OSHA 10 or 30-hour training classes are conducted by a trainer who is officially authorized to conduct these OSHA courses. The trainer must first complete a series of OSHA trainer classes provided by one of the OSHA Education centers located around the country. You can confirm their status as a currently authorized OSHA Outreach trainer by asking to look at their credentials proving they completed the following trainer courses.
Construction industry trainers must successfully complete the OSHA 510 course, followed by the OSHA 500 course. This qualifies the trainer to conduct OSHA 10-hour construction training in Maryland and anywhere else in the USA and territories for a four-year period. The trainer is also authorized to conduct OSHA 30-hour construction training in Maryland and elsewhere. To maintain their status as an authorized OSHA Outreach trainer for construction, they must complete the OSHA 502 trainer update course every four years.
General industry trainers must successfully complete the OSHA 511 course, followed by the OSHA 501 course. This qualifies the trainer to conduct OSHA 10-hour general industry training in Maryland and anywhere else in the USA and territories for a four-year period. The trainer is also authorized to conduct OSHA 30-hour general industry training in Maryland and elsewhere. To maintain their status as an authorized OSHA Outreach trainer for general industry, they must complete the OSHA 503 trainer update course every four years.

Online OSHA 10 and 30-hour Training Courses Accepted in Maryland
There are also OSHA-authorized online 10 and 30-hour training courses available for construction and general industry. However, you must pay close attention, as only those course providers that are specifically authorized to provide these courses can issue trainees the official DOL / OSHA 10 or 30-hour wallet cards. There are plenty of imitators out there who use deceptive fine print and “too good to be true” pricing to sell you a course that is not OSHA authorized. You can rest assured that the 10 and 30-hour online OSHA training courses offered on our website are authorized by OSHA, and are accepted in Maryland as well as all other states and US territories.
Regulation of Workplace Safety & Health in Maryland
The state of Maryland, under agreement with OSHA, operates an occupational safety and health program (MOSH) that regulates OSHA training in most MD workplaces (public and private), in accordance with Section 18 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. The Maryland plan was certified on February 15, 1980, and was granted final state plan approval on July 18, 1985.
State of Maryland OSHA Regulations and Standards
In order to avoid duplication of regulatory requirements and facilitate compliance by Maryland employers, MOSH has adopted the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Standards contained in Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations Part 1910 (General Industry), Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations Part 1926 (Construction), and Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations Part 1928 (Agriculture). In addition to these federal standards, MOSH has adopted several regulations that are unique to Maryland. These regulations (or standards) are available on the MOSH website.
MOSH has jurisdiction over all public and private sector places of employment in the state of Maryland, with the exception of federal employees, the United States Postal Service, private sector maritime activities (shipyard employment, marine terminals, and longshoring), and military bases, which are subject to federal jurisdiction.
