The Tri-State Industrial Safety Council, a member of the Association of Reciprocal Safety Councils (ARSC), in partnership with USI Outreach and Engagement, offers the Basic Orientation Plus™ training program.  Basic Orientation Plus meets most of the OSHA-mandated contractor requirements. As a result the contract employee spends less time at the council on an annual basis and more time on the job. This increases safety-training efficiency for the contract employee due to a reduction in redundant information being presented.

Basic Orientation Plus (BOP) courses are scheduled on most Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning at 8 a.m. and lasting approximately six hours. BOP Refresher (Refresher) courses are scheduled on most Wednesdays and Fridays beginning at 8 a.m. and lasting approximately four hours.
