Nevada Training : What you need to know

Nevada has adopted training requirements that are stricter than federal rules for tower crane operators, process safety management (PSM) for employees who handle explosives and ammonium perchlorate, and employees performing tasks under the written workplace safety and health programs. Nevada has also adopted its own safety training certification requirements for construction workers. See the state Training (Construction) analysis for more information. Nevada follows the federal rules for all other workplace safety and health training rules.
