Is OSHA 10 Training Required in Nevada?

Why are OSHA Training Requirements different in Nevada?

Some states follow OSHA guidelines while other states are allowed to follow their own State Plan.  The State Plan is required to be as effective as OSHA guidelines at preventing injury, illness, and deaths but they sometimes have additional requirements above OSHA guidelines.  Nevada is one of 22 states that operates a State Plan. If you live and work in Nevada, it is important to be aware of changes to Nevada State Plan requirements.

Requirement Changes for OSHA 10/30 Hour Safety and Health Course

One recent change applies to some workers in the entertainment industry. Governor Sandoval signed Assembly Bill 190 requiring specific workers in the entertainment industry to complete OSHA 10 or OSHA 30 Safety and Health course. The Bill became effective January 1, 2018.

OSHA 10 Training Required in Nevada

Which Nevada workers are required to obtain OSHA 10 or OSHA 30 certificates?

The requirement applies to workers in the entertainment industry that work on “site”. The “site” is where live entertainment is performed.  That includes a sound stage, a lounge, an arena, or remote site that is the production location of a movie or tv program. 

The specific workers are those working primarily on site in 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 in 1, 2 or 3 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

Those that volunteer or are not paid to work on the site are not required to take the OSHA 10 or 30 course.

If you live and work in Nevada, you can find OSHA compliant safety trainings on a variety of topics at

Good luck and stay safe!
