To all OTI Education Center Region 1 Outreach Trainers:

Our deepest appreciation for your efforts this year in working with OSHA to keep our workforce safe. It has been our pleasure to have you on our Outreach Trainer roles.

May your holidays be joyful and bright and we will see you next year.

Best regards,
Please be aware of the Keene State College OSHA Education Center holiday hours:

The Center will be closed December 25, 2019 through January 1, 2020. Consider this when entering classes on the portal (we will not be there to assist you). Please be sure to sign up for early January classes — by December 20, 2019 (especially those who need an update course before the end of January).

Are you updating your Outreach Trainer Authorization at a different Authorized Training Organization? (ATO)

OSHA's "January 2019 Program Requirements" regarding changes to an Outreach Trainer's ATO states the following:

Upon changing ATOs, and while a previous trainer authorization has not yet expired, Outreach Trainers are required to notify the original ATO of their new trainer authorization through a different ATO. This will ensure that trainers remain authorized through only one ATO per industry at a time.
As we know it, the OSHA Outreach Training Program is voluntary. OSHA Outreach Training Program training does not meet the training requirements contained in any OSHA standard. Some states and local jurisdictions have enacted legislation mandating OSHA Outreach Training Program training, and some employers and unions require workers to have this training to work on job sites or to fulfill their own safety training goals. 
Keep up with changes at OSHA through QuickTakes.
