In line with regulations, anyone who works in an environment that has the potential to create fires must receive training prior to operating in the environment on their own.
When it comes to refresher training, the standards in some instances are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.
