Updated On: May 01, 2020
IATSE Local 488 has asked that all 488 members attend OSHA 10 GES training Due to Covid-19 the deadline to achieve this certification has been extended to June 2022.
Covid -19 has heightened our awareness of the importance of safety in our workplace and in our lives. We have been approved by the IATSE TTF and by Oregon OSHA to hold our classes remotely via Zoom!! We are looking to hold these every couple of weeks, depending on turnout. During Covid-19 Rickey Lepinski will not be charging trainer fees. Thanks Rickey!!!

This course serves an overview of essential safety protocols and procedures for our industry, both in our shops and on set. It’s a baseline of critical knowledge for entry level crew members and seasoned Craftspeople.
OSHA 10 helps ensure we can all depend on a safe and healthy workplace.
New and current Members sign up today!
Members are saying:
“ I somewhat begrudgingly signed up for the OSHA 10 a year ago and presumed it would be a dry and boring class, just something that I had to get through as it was likely in my best interest and was now required. I was pleasantly surprised that it was not only incredibly informative, but also engaging. There are segments of the class that are ingrained in my head about safety awareness and being prepared, that I guarantee will be true for all of our members when they take the class.”
New standards set by your IATSE Local 488 ask all new members (from February 2019 forward) to obtain this certification within two years of joining!
In addition all current members are asked to take the OSHA 10 Certification by June, 2022
Local 488 is committed to providing our Members with the safety training our industry and employers demand.
This training covers safe work practices on stage, in our prodcution offices, and on location using OSHA policies, procedures, and standards, as well as general industry safety and health principles.
Special emphasis is placed on those areas that are the most hazardous in our workplace, using OSHA standards as a guide.
This is a 10 hour course, split into two days. This means there is a minimum of 10 hours of total instruction time required by OSHA for certification. This time allotment does not take into account time for: your questions of the instructor, breaks, or lunch breaks. Class is usually 8 hours on Day 1 and 4-5 hours on Day 2.
