OSHA Announces Elimination of the Outreach Trainer 90-day Grace Period
As part of its continuing effort to improve the Outreach Training Program, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will be eliminating the authorized trainer “90-day grace period” described in Sections III.B.1.,2, and 4 of the OSHA Outreach Training Program Requirements. This change will be included in the next published revisions of the OSHA Outreach Training Program Requirements and applicable sections of each Industry Procedures document, and will become effective January 1, 2019. However, Section III.C. of the OSHA Outreach Training Program Requirements (Trainer Update Exemption for Overseas Military Service) remains in effect while the Agency evaluates the impact of this change.

Elimination of the grace period is intended to reduce confusion regarding trainer authorization status, and to encourage trainers to maintain their trainer authorization(s). OSHA urges authorized trainers to schedule registration, attendance, and completion of the relevant Trainer Update course well in advance of their trainer authorization expiration date. Authorized trainers that let their authorization lapse will be ineligible to attend a Trainer Update course, and will be required to meet all prerequisite requirements to attend the relevant Trainer course, to include having successfully completed the applicable OSHA Standards course(s) within seven calendar years of attendance at the Trainer course. Extensions of trainer authorizations that expire on or after January 1, 2019, will not be granted.

If you have any questions, call (866) 936-6742 (OSHA) or email ahosier@clpccd.org .
Inspiring Success Story
By Addie Hosier
Outreach Trainer Support and Special Consultant

29 years ago an eighteen year old was arrested for possession and sale of marijuana. He was convicted and served a 28-year sentence. 
After his release he found a program at Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay Area that helps people like himself get back on their feet. One of our Outreach Trainers, Alex Francois, taught him many things in this program, including an OSHA 10-hour construction safety class. 
 
I had the opportunity to meet this man, and he really stood out to me as someone with character who was grateful for the opportunities being offered and was willing to work hard. He is currently working on the new Warriors stadium project in San Francisco. While money is not the only indicator of success, I am happy to share that he is now making more than enough to support himself.  

He recently celebrated his birthday and noted that it was his first “free” birthday since he was 18. 
 
We can feel really proud to be part of a group of trainers that can help create such positive and inspiring results.
 
Outreach Trainer Finder
OSHA now features an Outreach Trainer Finder on the department website, which includes a list of Outreach Trainers who have requested that their contact information be made public.
This list will help you find OSHA-authorized trainers who conduct 10- and 30-hour Outreach Training classes in construction, general industry, maritime, or disaster site work. Inclusion on this list does not imply any endorsement by OSHA.
