To all Outreach Trainers: We’re Upgrading to a New Outreach Trainer Portal!

We are excited to announce that Region 1 New England / Keene State College will be transitioning to a new Outreach trainer portal on June 6, 2022. The OSHA Card Portal (OCP) will provide a more user-friendly experience, allowing you to easily submit Outreach Training Program Reports (OTPRs), track shipments, and order replacement cards.

What does this mean for Outreach trainers?

  • Rocky Mountain Education Center (RMEC) Outreach Trainer Portal – the portal that you currently use to submit OTPRs – will shut down on Tuesday, May 31.

  • On Monday, June 6, you will be able to access the OSHA Card Portal. All OTPRs will be submitted to the OSHA Card Portal going forward.

  • You will not be able to submit OTPRs from June 1 through June 5 while the historical data is migrated to the new portal.

  • No later than Monday, May 30, download and save your PDF copies of the OTPRs submitted to RMEC for your own records to remain in compliance with the Outreach Training Program Requirements.

    • Note:OTPRs submitted to RMEC may not be available in the new portal.

How do I access the new OSHA Card Portal (OCP)?

Starting June 6, you will be able to access the OCP following these steps:

  1. In your web browser, navigate to https://www.oshacardportal.com

    • We recommend using Google Chrome as your web browser, as this is the most compatible browser for the OCP.

  2. Using the Sign In page, enter the email address you used to access the RMEC Outreach Training Portal and leave the password field blank.

    • For security reasons, you will need to set up a new password.

  3. Click the Sign In button.

  4. If the email you entered matches an account transitioned from RMEC, you will see a Welcome message.

  5. Click the Send Email button and a link to set up a new password will be sent to your email account.

    • If you don’t receive the email within 5 minutes, check your spam folder.

  6. Open the email and click the link to set up a new password for the OCP.

  7. After creating a new password for your OCP account, you will be signed into the OCP and should see the historical data transitioned from RMEC.

  8. Once you have signed in successfully, you will use your email address and the newly created password to access the OCP going forward. If you happen to forget your password, simply click the Forgot Password link on the OCP Sign In page.

If you have issues accessing the OCP or have any further questions about the transition, please contact Leslie Singleton, Outreach Program Coordinator, at 800.449.6742 lsingleton@keene.edu

We appreciate your patience as we upgrade to the OSHA Card Portal.

Attention Outreach Trainers: Please read the following passage regarding your trainer authorization and expiration dates. This is from the December 2017 OTI Education Center Requirements and Procedure Manual:

"Previously authorized Outreach trainers” no  longer exist. A trainer card that has expired within the last 10 years is no  longer acceptable to meet the prerequisite requirements for enrolling in a  trainer course. Any trainer who allows their authorization to expire must meet  the same prerequisite requirements as everyone else enrolling in the trainer  course, i.e. standards course completion within the last 7 years and a  prerequisite verification form that documents the 5 years of safety experience. 


        * NEW Trainers must register to receive your NEW ID# and password.


Here are some helpful TIPS for success with the Outreach Program: http://oshaedne.com/improvingotresults/


STUDENT COURSE COMPLETION CARDS

  • Trainers must submit class documentation within 30 days of class completion in order to be issued outreach cards. Cards are $8.00 each.

  • Trainers must provide student course completion cards to students within 30 days of receipt.

  • Trainers must issue student course completion cards directly to the student, regardless of who paid for the training. Cards must be sent to the students address listed on the daily sign in sheets or deliver 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.

  • Replacement of student course outreach cards will not be issued if the training took place more than five years ago - if original training occurred more than 5 years ago - student must attend training again to be issued a new outreach card. Only one replacement may be issued per student.

  • 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.
