OSHA Online Course Reimbursement

We now offer reimbursement to individuals for OSHA 10 and OSHA 30 General Industry Safety and Health and Construction Safety and Health online trainings! This pilot program reimburses IATSE workers who do not have access to a live OSHA 10/GES, OSHA 10, or OSHA 30 course.

 
 

WHAT TYPES OF COURSES ARE REIMBURSABLE?

OSHA General Industry 10-hour or 30-hour classes provide basic safety and health information and education. These classes provide training for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces. The program also provides information regarding workers' rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint. 

The 10-hour class is intended to provide workers with awareness of common job-related safety and health hazards, while the 30-hour class is a more in-depth awareness training appropriate for supervisors, department heads, keys, or workers with some safety responsibility.

  • Keep in mind, the IATSE TTF is not a provider of online OSHA courses and the TTF OSHA 10/General Entertainment Safety © is not offered online anywhere. Any online course you take will be factory or construction related and will not be related to the Entertainment Industry.

  • Participants should not take either course with the expectation that they will be reimbursed. All applications will be considered based on answers given and funds available.

What’s the difference between OSHA 10 and OSHA 30 cards?

10-hour card: Students who attend the 10-hour course receive this card. The 10-hour course provides information about worker rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint and provides basic awareness training on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of workplace hazards.

30-hour card: Students who attend the 30-hour course receive this card. The 30-hour course is intended for supervisors or for workers with some safety responsibility. It provides a greater depth and variety of training on an expanded list of topics associated with workplace hazards than the 10-hour course.

The OSHA 30 course may be appropriate for department heads, keys, and others with supervisory responsibilities depending on your employer and the state or city in which you reside. Reimbursement for this course will not be approved if it is not necessary for work.
