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.
All construction workers and supervisors in private and government sector workplaces working on a construction site in Nevada must complete construction safety training courses. Construction workers must complete a 10-hour course, and supervisors must complete a 30-hour course. Trained persons must carry a course completion card certifying that they have completed the training. See the MANDATORY OSHA 10- AND 30-HOUR CONSTRUCTION SAFETY TRAINING section below the TABLE.
Nevada has also adopted its own OSHA 10- and 30-hour safety training certification requirements for specific workers in the entertainment industry (NRS 618.9901 to 618.9913).
See the state Cranes and Slings analysis for training requirements for tower crane operators in Nevada.
Nevada follows the federal rules for all other workplace safety and health training rules.
The Nevada Department of Business and Industry’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration administers workplace safety and health rules for private and public sector employers in the state, and administers the 10- and 30-hour safety training rules for construction and entertainment industry activities.
