OSHA General Industry Training Requirements

Many standards promulgated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) explicitly require the employer to train (or instruct, or communicate, or inform) employees in the safety and health aspects of their jobs. Other OSHA standards make it the employer's responsibility to limit certain job assignments to employees who are "certified," "competent," or "qualified" - meaning that they have had special previous training, in or out of the workplace. Also, the term "designated" personnel means selected or assigned by the employer or the employer's representative as being qualified to perform specific duties.
