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.
