OSHA in Your Theatre?

January 14, 2020

Our Business of the Business webinar series returns with safety as its focus in the "OSHA in Your Theatre?" webinar. 

Join USITT in a conversation with OSHA Authorized Trainers & ANSI experts who take you through the OSHA codes and ANSI standards that apply to you and your space and let you know where you can locate this information for future needs.

Anyone who oversees or works in a venue should sit in on this webinar and you may just want to invite your colleagues, administration, or even janitorial staff if they are the only ones deemed “qualified” enough to do some of the work.

"The OSHA in Your Theatre?" webinar will be presented by Eddie Raymond, Joe Aldridge

Monday, March 16, 8 p.m. - 9 p.m. EST

Member Price: $25 | Non-Member Price $40

Are you no longer allowed to use your stage without a railing “at all times”?

Are you no longer able to build escape stairs and paint them black because they are a “hazard”?

Have you been told the Fire Curtain must be lowered at all times when the theatre is not in use?

Do you know better but just can’t produce the documentation to prove to your school officials you’re in compliance? Or, do you need to hone your OSHA & ANSI knowledge to keep you, your students, your staff, and your guests, safe?
