Safety First! Online Courses
The Safety First! Online Courses promote safe working conditions by providing information, tools, and resources to recognize potential hazards and minimize risks. Case studies from the various crafts are included, making the curriculum relevant across the IATSE workforce. The Safety First! courses are available in two formats:
Workers: Individual workers can take the online courses in whichever order they'd like and start or stop at any point and pick up where they left off on any computer or mobile device.
Locals: Local trainers approved to use the Safety First! Curriculum can access the Instructor Led Training (ILT) website to teach in a group setting using audio narration. Trainers can facilitate the interactive group course by muting the narration if they wish or pausing to discuss their own subject matter experiences.
This is the same material as the Safety First! books reformatted as interactive, online courses. Introduction to Basic Entertainment Safety, Biological Hazards, Hazard Communication: Workplace Chemicals, Electrical Safety, Ergonomics, Noise Exposure, Chemical Protection, Rigging Safety, and Firearms Safety are available now, and new courses will be automatically added to your account as they become available. Additional courses include: Fall Prevention and Protection; Elevated Work Platforms and Aerial Lifts; Scaffold Safety; Noise Exposure; Confined Space/Small Space Awareness; Hand and Portable Power Tools; Compressed Gases; and Welding and Cutting.
