Team Safesite


Last Updated: March 6, 2020

The first question an OSHA incident investigator will seek to answer is: “Did the employee receive adequate safety training to do the job?”

Throughout its interpretations and citations, OSHA states that an adequate employee training program includes a documented plan, skilled instructors, an effective learning environment, leadership buy-in, and most importantly, results. 

In this article, we discuss how OSHA assesses and cites its safety training standards, and how you can go beyond compliance to protect your employees.
