Making a National Impact. Together.
At CareerSafe, we know the work we’re doing is about something greater than us. To date, CareerSafe has trained over 2.6 million workers, and we’re committed to expanding our outreach to ensure every U.S. worker has the basic knowledge and skills necessary to be safe, healthy, and secure in the workplace. We’ve partnered with several organizations to help make that outreach expansion possible. Together, we’re improving the lives of as many workers as possible.
Building Awareness Through Outreach
CareerSafe has been a proud member of the OSHA Alliance since 2018. As an Alliance member, we work hand in hand with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to improve workplace safety and health awareness among workers, sharing information and resources needed to stay safe on the job. At CareerSafe, we don’t just sell career training courses—we’re also committed to creating dialogue about occupational safety and health topics while engaging the workforce in OSHA initiatives. Our membership in the OSHA Alliance is a pathway for change that makes a direct impact on CareerSafe students.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), 54.4% of the youth population (ages 16-24) had a job in July 2021—that’s over half of our youth who have joined the workforce. Unfortunately, in addition to hazards prevalent in the places teens typically work, limited or no prior work experience and lack of safety training contribute to high injury rates among this segment of the workforce population. Many of these injuries are preventable with the right education and resources. We have been working hard to provide those tools since joining the Alliance.
In 2019, CareerSafe collaborated with other like-minded OSHA partners to answer the burning question at hand: How can we amplify each other’s voices to bring attention to youth worker safety? What started as a conversation about summer job safety has evolved into an open and continuous dialogue about the issues facing entry-level workers today. In partnership with OSHA, CareerSafe hosts a website dedicated to keeping teen workers safe by sharing useful educational materials, videos, regulations, and more.
CareerSafe is working hand-in-hand with the National Center for Construction Education & Research (NCCER) to ensure trainees and students in the U.S. have access to affordable safety training. Our collaboration allows OSHA credentials to be tracked within NCCER’s Registry System.
The 6th Edition of NCCER Core: Introduction to Basic Construction Skills incorporates CareerSafe’s OSHA 10-Hour Construction training into the lesson plan, which makes it a great companion to the full CareerSafe OSHA 10-Hour courses.
By completing both the updated Core and CareerSafe OSHA 10-Hour training, students and trainees will earn a total of three credentials:
- NCCER Core
- OSHA 10-Hour Card
- Construction Site Safety Orientation (CSSO)
Together, CareerSafe and NCCER are helping build a safer future. We invite you to be part of it.

Mid Atlantic OTIEC
CareerSafe is proud to partner with the Mid Atlantic OSHA Training Institute Education Center (OTIEC). This long-standing partnership benefits our customers in a variety of ways.
Thanks to this partnership, our OSHA training stands out from the ground up. All CareerSafe OSHA 10-Hour course content is overseen by an OSHA-Authorized Outreach Trainer with demonstrated occupational safety and health knowledge, verified safety and health leadership experience, and an OSHA Authorization through the Mid Atlantic OTIEC.
CareerSafe is also able to provide our customers with durable, plastic OSHA cards. Although CareerSafe is one of eight OSHA-Authorized Online Providers (OP), all plastic OSHA cards must be printed by an Authorizing Training Organization (ATO) as designated by OSHA. Mid Atlantic OTIEC is the ATO with which CareerSafe partners to issue OSHA cards for our students.
Our partnership with Mid Atlantic OTIEC and their industry-leading OSHA Card Portal (OCP) also means CareerSafe can have OSHA cards in the mail within two business days of a student completing a CareerSafe-offered OSHA 10-Hour course.
Additionally, the back of each OSHA card earned through a CareerSafe OSHA course features a QR code linking to the OCP Verify OSHA Card page. Using this secure system, cards can be verified as official and valid OSHA training credentials—a valuable feature for all employers.
