Elimination of 90 day grace period

As part of its continuing effort to improve the Outreach Training Program, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration  (OSHA) will be eliminating the authorized trainer “90-day grace period” described in Sections III.B.1.,2, and 4 of the OSHA Outreach Training Program Requirements. This change will be included in the next published revisions of the OSHA Outreach Training Program Requirements and applicable sections of each Industry Procedures document, and will become effective January 1, 2019. However, Section III.C. of the OSHA Outreach Training Program Requirements (Trainer Update Exemption for Overseas Military Service) remains in effect while the Agency evaluates the impact of this change.

Elimination of the grace period is intended to reduce confusion regarding trainer authorization status, and to encourage trainers to maintain their trainer authorization(s). OSHA urges authorized trainers to schedule registration, attendance, and completion of the relevant Trainer Update course well in advance of their trainer authorization expiration date. Authorized trainers that let their authorization lapse will be ineligible to attend a Trainer Update course, and will be required to meet all prerequisite requirements to attend the relevant Trainer course, to include having successfully completed the applicable OSHA Standards course(s) within seven calendar years of attendance at the Trainer course. Extensions of trainer authorizations that expire on or after January 1, 2019, will not be granted.

As a result of this federal program change EKU intends to offer more OSHA 502/503 update opportunities for currently authorized Outreach trainers in 2019 and beyond.
