Why Training?

Regulations make it very clear that any employees working in or around slip, trip, and fall hazards must be trained (no matter how long they’ve been on the job). The standards also state that the employer is responsible for overseeing employee safety training and evaluating the permit space program in order to confirm that the employees have the understanding, knowledge, and skills needed for safe confined space entry operations.

When it comes to refresher training, the standards in some instances (like forklifts) 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 proves continued competency.
