Safety Training

Safety Net – February 2017

The Importance of Keeping Your Safety Training Current


Remembering which trainings OSHA requires, which require updates, and renewal frequencies can be challenging. OSHA’s publication Training Requirements in OSHA Standards will help companies navigate training requirements, but RETTEW recommends companies create a training spreadsheet or, for larger needs, purchase a tracking system. These tools will help you ensure all your employees maintain up-to-date certifications.

If your workers receive their training from RETTEW, we will keep track of their status and automatically send a reminder when it’s time for their training refresher/renewal!

Examples of training affected workers must receive annually
  • Occupational Noise Exposure
  • Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
  • Respiratory Protection (with annual fit test)
  • Fire Brigade
  • Portable Fire Extinguishers
  • Asbestos
  • Bloodborne Pathogens (for those with a potential of occupational exposure)
  • Hazard Communication
  • Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) 8-Hour Refresher


Training Required Every Two Years
  • First Aid/CPR/AED


Training Required Every Three Years
  • Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals
  • Powered Industrial Trucks


If an incident occurs, one of the first questions an OSHA incident investigator will ask is, “Did the employee receive adequate training to do the job?” Maintaining a good tracking system will help you quickly respond to an investigator, and ensuring your workers are properly trained encourages worker safety and reduces your risk.
