New OSHA Outreach Trainer: Beverly Miller

Local USA 829 applied for OSHA Training Institute supported funds to send Beverly Miller to the Atlantic OSHA Training Center at Rutgers School of Public Health. After completing all the necessary courses, Beverly is now an OSHA Outreach Trainer! She attended the TTF Train the Trainer workshop last year and co-taught the TTF OSHA 10/General Entertainment Safety course last week in New York with ICAP members and OSHA Trainers Alan Rowe, Joe Aldridge, and Eddie Raymond. She is now authorized to use the TTF's OSHA curriculum at Local USA 829 and other locals.

I’m very concerned about safety on the set and on location. I have worked with our expert Industrial Hygienist and Business Rep for Safety, Monona Rossol, to bring awareness to members of the IA. Having completed formal TTF and OSHA training, I hope to expand our members’ awareness of Health and Safety in all crafts.

The OSHA 10/GES training is a two-day course customized for and using examples from the Entertainment Industry. OSHA policies, procedures, and standards are covered and provide a foundation of safety training and hazard awareness. Locals interested in the OSHA 10/GES can arrange to have Beverly teach and are encouraged to apply to our Supported Course program to help defray the costs of training.
