UPDATE on RSO-20 Hour course
On October 7, 2017, the Governor of California signed into law AB55. In part, the law changes the implementation dates for the components of the 20-hour High Hazard Facility Training referenced in Health and Safety Code Section 25536.7, Sub Section (10) (C).
Consistent with the new law, the following has been amended:
• Effective dates for Part 1: 4-hours of Fundamentals of Refining and Part 3: 8-hours of Safety as it Pertains to Crafts have been extended to July 1st, 2018
• Effective date of Part 2: 8-hours of Refinery Safety Overview, a carryover of the previous Refinery Safety Overview (RSO) training, will remain as originally announced: January 1, 2018
Eligible members who contact our office will be required to schedule all three courses, totalling 20-hours of training. Local 378 will not schedule any portion of the training, individually.
Please note: the High Hazard Facility Training is a 3-day training. Please keep this in mind when scheduling with Local 378 as the IMPACT attendance policy is still in effect.
All active and eligible Local 378 Journeymen and Apprentices are able to be registered for OSCA Site-Specific courses with Local 378 at no cost to the member, paid by IMPACT.
