A best practice is to review each applicable OSHA rule for its employee training and information requirements; some rules have annual training and/or employee information requirements. While OSHA’s training requirements vary from rule to rule, there are some commonalities:
- Training is required for each employee who is exposed to the hazard.
- Initial training is required before the employee is exposed to the hazard.
- Refresher training can be required on a scheduled basis, as needed when workplace conditions have changed, or if the employee is no longer performing safely.
