OSHA continues alliance with entertainment industry groups

Connecticut workers in the entertainment industry may be interested to know that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has opted to continue an alliance with two major entertainment worker organizations for another five years. By renewing its partnership with International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees and the United States Institute for Theatre Technology, OSHA will continue to safeguard the health and safety of people who work in entertainment industry.

During the five-year period, the three participants of the alliance will provide workers with resources to educate them about electrical hazards, ergonomics, falls and other types of industry dangers. The two entertainment industry groups will provide information to state and federal personnel that addresses industry safety topics, such as the way to use portable distribution systems in a safe manner and fall prevention tactics. The participants of the alliance will also continue to disseminate information about OSHA's enforcement initiatives, rulemaking and outreach projects. Examples of these projects include the Safe and Sound Campaign for Safety and Health Programs and the National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction.

As an organization for professionals, USITT provides valuable networking and development opportunities to its members. IATSE serves as a labor union to people who work in television broadcasting, motion picture production and related construction and equipment shops. The union also represents people work in live theater, including craftspersons, technicians and artisans.

Individuals who sustain injuries while performing job duties may be eligible for workers' compensation. An attorney could help a worker file an initial claim for benefits or submit an appeal for a claim that has been denied or insufficiently awarded.
