The Arizona State Plan applies to all public and private sector places of employment in Tucson and the rest of the state of AZ, with the exception of Federal employees, the United States Postal Service (USPS), private sector maritime, employment on Indian Lands, areas of exclusive Federal jurisdiction; copper smelters, and concrete and asphalt batch plants that are physically located within mine property, which are subject to Federal jurisdiction.

Authorized OSHA Trainers in Tucson
There is no official certification required to teach most OSHA training classes in Tucson. However, 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 Tucson and anywhere else in the state for a four-year period. The trainer is also authorized to conduct OSHA 30-hour construction training in Tucson and elsewhere in the state. 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 Tucson and anywhere else in the state for a four-year period. The trainer is also authorized to conduct OSHA 30-hour general industry training in Tucson and elsewhere in the state. 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 Tucson
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 Tucson AZ as well as in all other states and US territories.
