OSHA Training Institute Support
The IATSE Training Trust Fund is working hard to provide needed resources for locals to be able to offer and expand training. One way we do this is through our OSHA Training Institute Supported Funds program. The goal of this program is to support locals in developing new OSHA Outreach Trainers from their locals, both increasing capacity and lowering the cost to providing training. If your local has thought about developing an OSHA Outreach Trainer, read this flyer.
Local unions can apply for supported funds that will reimburse the local for the cost of tuition of the OSHA 511 and OSHA 501 at an authorized OSHA Training Institute Education Center. Applications for support must be made prior to the courses being taken. Reimbursement is made after both the 511 and 501 are successfully completed and all invoices and receipts are submitted.
Contact us if your local is interested in developing an OSHA Outreach Trainer.
Prerequisites for the OSHA 501
Students must successfully complete the OSHA #511 Occupational Safety and Health Standards for General Industry and have five (5) years of safety and health work experience in general industry. A degree in occupational safety and health, a Certified Safety Professional (CSP), or a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) designation may be substituted for two (2) years of work related experience. Students should obtain guidance on whether they meet this requirement from the OSHA Training Institute Education Center where they intend to receive the training. Authorized OSHA General Industry Outreach Training Program trainers are required to attend OSHA #503 Update for General Industry Outreach Trainers at least once every four (4) years to maintain their trainer status.
