The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) explicitly requires employers to train employees in all safety and health matters pertinent to their job duties and work environment. These requirements reflect OSHA’s belief that training is an essential part of every employer’s safety and health program for protecting workers from injuries and illnesses.
Many of OSHA’s standards make it the employer’s responsibility to limit certain job assignments to those who are “certified”, “competent”, or “qualified”. This means the worker must have had special training.
Training in the proper performance of a job is cost effective and the employer should consider training as an investment rather than an expense. A comprehensive health and safety program includes training for workers, results in fewer injuries and illnesses, raises morale, and lowers insurance premiums.
