New OSHA Outreach Trainer: Eric Webster, Local 31

Congratulations to Eric Webster from IATSE Local 31 for completing the OSHA Outreach Trainer program at Metropolitan Community College OTI Education Center! With support from the TTF's OSHA Training Institute Supported Funds program and after applying to teach the TTF OSHA 10/GES Curriculum, Eric taught the first OSHA 10/General Entertainment Safety course of the year in Kansas City, MO. As an OSHA Authorized Outreach Trainer, Eric will be able to teach the TTF's OSHA 10/General Entertainment Safety training for his local and other locals.

I am looking forward to spending more of my time helping to train members of our local and the Alliance in general in the things I have learned over the years. I am very excited about this new opportunity to teach the OSHA 10/GES class because no matter what your craft, safety is a backbone of whatever you do.
