OSHA 10 - NEW REQUIREMENTS

Connecticut State Law requires that everyone on a prevailing rate construction project must have completed a minimum of 10 hours of safety training within the past 5 years. Proof of training (IE: OSHA card) must be provided and the completion date of the training can be no more than 5 years earlier. Those who have completed an OSHA 30 Hour Safety Training class more than 5 years ago must take an OSHA 10 class to satisfy the Connecticut 5-year requirement. Example: OSHA Card (10 or 30) issued 01/01/2009 expires 01/01/2014 in Connecticut; another full 10-hour OSHA Safety Training class is required. Many contractors, construction managers, owners, etc. are adapting the Connecticut 10-hour Safety Training requirement with the 5-year expiration rule as part of their safety policies, even on non-prevailing rate projects. If you are not yet certified or your OSHA 10 or 30 card is older than 5 years you must take this course.

Additional information:
This 5-year rule is unique to Connecticut only The US Department of Labor OSHA does not have expiration dates. There is no OSHA refresher - participants must attend the entire 10 hour class.

RULES FOR MAINTAINING D.O.T. WELDING CARD

Once you have obtained a Connecticut Department of Transportation (D.O.T.) Welding Certification - it is up to you to maintain it. This means you must call Tom Lynch or Dan Furlani at the CT Department of Transportation Division of Materials Testing (860) 258-0329 every six (6) months, whether you are welding or not, to maintain the D.O.T. welding card. The CT D.O.T. Welding Certification is good for two (2) years after the date of issue. At the two-year expiration date, the card gets mailed to the Department of Transportation to be re-issued. Re-issue of the card is at the discretion of the State Inspector. The card is the property of the CT D.O.T. If you are welding on multiple jobs between the six (6) month intervals, you must call each time you change contractors. Failure to do this may jeopardize your certification. The D.O.T. has these rules in order to track welders that hold this certification. They also have the right to revoke the welder's card at any time. The test at MISTRAS/ITI cost the Union $300.00. The Union will pay for the initial test after completing the journeyman upgrade class. If you fail to follow these rules and allow this certification to lapse or run out, you will be responsible to pay for the retest. Mailing address:
CT Department of Transportation Division of Materials Testing
280 West Street
Rocky Hill CT 06077
