New: OSHA Outreach Trainer National Registry

All Authorized OSHA Outreach Trainers are now eligible to opt in to receive referrals from the new OSHA FIND A TRAINER database, which is located at https://www.osha.gov/dte/outreach/courses.html

If you have a portal account and would like your contact information to be included in this new list, please click on the Trainer Contact Information button on the left side of your screen and check the "Opt In" box. This is also a good time to make sure your address, phone number, and email address is up to date. (Please note that all your cards will be mailed to this address)

New: Outreach Training Program Requirements

There have been recent changes to the training requirements effective April 1st, 2018. The minimum Introduction to OSHA topic requirement is now decreased to 1 hour, and for Construction trainers the Focus Four Falls requirement has increased to 1.5 hours.

RULES FOR STUDENT COURSE COMPLETION CARDS

  • Trainers must submit their reports within 30 days of class completion in order to be issued outreach cards.
    THE PORTAL WILL NOT ACCEPT A REQUEST AFTER 30 DAYS HAVE PASSED. If your report is too late to submit, please contact Joe to discuss the matter.

  • Trainers must provide student course completion cards to their students within 30 days of receiving them from NSEC.

  • Trainers must issue student course completion cards directly to the student, regardless of who paid for the training. Cards must be sent to the student's home or work address listed on the daily sign-in sheets, or handed to students directly. Trainers who fail to comply with this requirement may be subjected to corrective action by OSHA, up to and including the revocation of authorized trainer status.

  • In case of lost or stolen outreach cards, each student is allowed only one replacement. The replacement card must be ordered by the trainer who taught the course, using this portal. The replacement fee is $25/card. OSHA will not allow replacement cards for courses that took place more than five(5) years ago; in that case the student will have to take the course over again to receive a card.

  • The Outreach Training Program is voluntary and promotes workplace safety and health by training workers about their rights and workplace hazards. Visit OSHA's Outreach Training Program web page for more information.

  • You can go to verify.nsecosha.com to access the online training verification website. You can use this to verify that a student's outreach card number is valid, or to prove that you are an authorized trainer.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long does it take to get student cards once I have requested and paid for them?
1-2 weeks. It varies with seasonal demand for cards and with the speed of the US Postal Service.

Do I have to pay using a credit or debit card?
Yes. We apologize for any inconvenience but we can no longer accept checks or purchase orders for student cards.

Why does the charge on my credit card say "RMEC" instead of NIU or NSEC?
Although the NSEC is physically located at Northern Illinois University, we rent this website from our friends at the Rocky Mountain Education Center. This website was developed by RMEC, but is overseen by Joe Kauzlarich at the NSEC.

I am trying to submit a request for 1 or 2 students and it won't let me.
OSHA requires that each classroom have a minimum of 3 students in it. Please call Joe to discuss.

Why is the website acting strangely when I try to enter start and end times?
If for example you are trying to enter a time of 8 AM, you need to type "0 8 0 0 A"

The website denies my request even though I have entered the topic times correctly.
First make sure that you are typing the hours in the correct format. One hour is "1.00" and half an hour is "0.50".
Please review OSHA's required minimums for each individual topic. We have posted them here. In particular, note that the four individual "Focus Four" subjects must add up to a total of at least 4 hours when added together.


KNOWN BUGS IN THE PORTAL (we are always working to improve the code of the portal)

  • On certain computers when trying to submit a new card request, a previously completed request will appear. To fix this, simply click the 'Clear Form' button.

  • When entering credit card information, the sample expiration date cannot be typed over. You must click inside the box, press the backspace key until the sample expiration date has been removed. Then it will allow you to type in your card's expiration date.
