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