The workshop is scheduled 4/5 – 4/9, meeting 9:00am-noon online via Zoom.
Attendance is limited, free for IATSE members, those completing all course requirements will earn a valuable industry certification and wallet card.
Presented by Brother Patrick Crowley, don’t miss this opportunity to participate in one of our most appreciated training opportunities!
What is OSHA 10 G.E.S.?
OSHA ten hour training is a safety certification recognized & required across many industries, the OSHA General Entertainment Safety version however uses examples from the entertainment industry, created by IATSE members for IATSE members!
Why should I become OSHA 10 certified?
In addition to the employment opportunities available to certified workers, becoming certified strengthens the IATSE and positions our workforce to remain the recognized industry leader in safety. A certified workforce empowers IATSE leadership in bargaining and aids in competition in securing represented work.

The IATSE Training Trust has created COVID-19 safety training intended to guide our workforce in returning to work:
COVID-19: Recommended Guidelines for Preventing Exposure in the Workplace.
In February the class was revised, updated and is now available to present in a group format. In addition to essential information and best practices this course discusses administrative controls to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our workplaces.
Brother Davis has agreed to introduce this important training online via Zoom, tentatively Thursday March 25th at 2:00pm.
Next week Assistant Business Agent Davis is teaching an IATSE Training Trust created class, Introduction to Basic Entertainment Safety.
Video conference 2:00pm-3:00pm Thursday 2/11.
THIS COURSE PROVIDES A GENERAL INTRODUCTION INTO THE WORLD OF WORKPLACE HEALTH AND SAFETY. IT EXPLAINS WHY WORKER HEALTH AND SAFETY IS IMPORTANT, WHY INJURIES AND ILLNESSES OCCUR IN THE WORKPLACE, EFFECTIVE INJURY AND ILLNESS PREVENTION PROGRAMS, METHODS OF HAZARD IDENTIFICATION AND CONTROL, AND STRATEGIES TO PROMOTE HEALTH AND SAFETY.
Class is exclusive to IATSE members and individuals who have worked under an IATSE contract that contributes to the TTF, Freeman AV for example.
Brother Joe Martin writes, “I hope this finds everyone safe and well. During these trying times, the downtime we have recently acquired is shocking. With a lack of public places to go, Im sure a lot of us are going a little bit stir crazy. While this crisis is keeping the public at home, many companies across the industry are offering their online training programs, free of charge!
“Lets all take advantage of these services, and make good use of the downtime we have. Included below is a link that lists all the free services available to entertainment professionals during COVID-19. Free and training aren’t two words you see together often, so lets jump on it! I hope the classes offered will be to the benefit of everyone, and we can come back stronger than ever once all this madness blows over.”
This is an introduction to general work methods, terminology and math involved in arena and convention rigging. This is not meant to be a comprehensive course, but will give you a better idea about what rigging is and how it is done. Space is limited and the event is expected to fill up fast. Please email to reserve a spot or if you have any questions about the class.
