OSHA Training Requirements - General Safety and Health Provisions
This website is not the official or final authority to determine OSHA compliance responsibilities, which are set forth in OSHA standards themselves, and the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. Because OSHA regulations are constantly being added, deleted, and/or revised, you must not rely on this website as the official or final authority of OSHA training requirements; refer to the official OSHA regulations available on OSHA’s website (osha.gov). – See disclaimers.
1926.20 – General Safety and Health Provisions
(b) – Accident prevention responsibilities.
(1) – It shall be the responsibility of the employer to initiate and maintain such programs as may be necessary to comply with this part.
(2) – Such programs shall provide for frequent and regular inspections of the job sites, materials, and equipment to be made by competent persons designated by the employers.
(4) – The employer shall permit only those employees qualified by training or experience to operate equipment and machinery.
(f) – Compliance duties owed to each employee.
(2) – Training. Standards in this part requiring training on hazards and related matters, such as standards requiring that employees receive training or that the employer train employees, provide training to employees, or institute or implement a training program, impose a separate compliance duty with respect to each employee covered by the requirement. The employer must train each affected employee in the manner required by the standard, and each failure to train an employee may be considered a separate violation.
