Borrow Our OSHA Trainer
We can send our OSHA Outreach Trainer to your local to teach an onsite class and get you started with safety classes.
Is your local in need of safety training, but you don't know where to start? We can send our trainer to teach an OSHA 10/General Entertainment Safety class for your local. He'll also help you determine what other programs you can take advantage of and connect you to resources.
How does it work?
We'll provide an OSHA Outreach Trainer to facilitate course instruction and send you student workbooks at no cost to the local. We'll also cover instructor travel, lodging, and meals. Any and all other costs incurred during the implementation of this course, including fees for OSHA course completion cards, are the responsibility of the local. We expect the local to be actively involved in the course implementation process, and you'll be responsible for all course logistics including securing a training space and equipment, course outreach to all potential beneficiaries (IATSE workers), distributing and processing course applications, and coordinating instructor travel, hotel accommodations, and local transportation.
What's covered in the training?
The two-day OSHA 10 training covers general industry safety and health principles and OSHA policies, procedures, and standards. It is customized for and uses examples from the entertainment industry. Class instruction runs from 8am – 4pm each day. Classes must meet a minimum requirement of 20 students and are limited to a maximum of 40 students.
How do we apply?
A local union officer (i.e., president, treasurer, BA) or the training coordinator must submit the application at least 60 days prior to the proposed date for classes. Applications are considered and approved based on the needs and circumstances surrounding the request after a discussion with the local. Once we approve your request, we'll list your course on our course calendar and people will be directed to contact you if they have an interest in attending your course. You are not obligated to accept IATSE workers from outside your local, but it can be a good way to fill a course with extra seats.
