OSHA-10 and OSHA-30 Training Now Required for Entertainment Industry Employees in Nevada

Nevada's Governor approved Assembly Bill 190 on May 24th, 2017. This bill requires additional safety training for many occupations within the entertainment industry. Effective January 1st, 2018 many employees in the field must now complete an OSHA 10-hour (non-supervisory employee) or OSHA 30-hour (supervisory employee) course.

Who does this new Nevada OSHA training requirement affect?

Workers whose primary occupation site includes one of the following categories:

  • Wardrobe, makeup, or hair
  • Projection, video, camera, audio, or other lighting equipment
  • Rigging, props, or theatrical scenery

When do I need to take this OSHA training course?

Assembly Bill 190 goes into effect on January 1st, 2018, and by then everyone working within the impacted industries should have their certification. From January 1st, 2018 forward, employees will have to complete an OSHA 10- or OSHA 30-hour course within 15 days of being hired.

Where can I take an approved Nevada OSHA course?

Our OSHA 10- and 30-hour courses are accepted in the State of Nevada and met the requirements of this bill; this includes people working in Las Vegas and Reno. Should you leave Nevada and relocate to another state, our training will be honored there as well.

How long with my OSHA certification valid for?

Under the new Assembly Bill 190, certification will be valid for 5-years. After five years, employees will be required to renew their OSHA certification.
