Nevada’s Assembly Bill 190 requires specific workers within the entertainment industry to complete OSHA 10-hour and 30-hour training, beginning January 1, 2018.

Members of the entertainment industry in Nevada are required to have either an OSHA 10 or OSHA 30 General Industry card by January 1st, 2019.

According to Nevada’s Department of Business and Industry website:

Starting January 1, 2018, the State of Nevada will require specific workers in the entertainment industry to complete an OSHA 10-hour (non-supervisory employee) or an OSHA 30-hour (supervisory employee) safety and health general industry course and receive a completion card within 15 days of hire.

The specific workers are ones whose primary occupation on site falls into one of these categories:

  • Theatrical scenery, rigging or props
  • Wardrobe, hair or makeup
  • Audio, camera, projection, video or lighting equipment
  • Any other items or parts which are related to or components of the items described above and which are used for on in conjunction with the presentation or production of:
          -Live entertainment
          -Filmmaking or photography, including without limitation, motion pictures
          -Television programs, including, without limitation, live broadcasts, closed-circuit broadcasts or videotape recordings and playback
          -Sporting events
          -Theatrical performances

This bill also requires a refresher or renewal every five years.
