Training and proper employee comprehension of safety, prevention, and compliance is an essential aspect of many industries and businesses.
OSHA training is the national standard as a government regulatory body. OSHA keeps employees (and with that, employers as well) safe by creating a solid, reliable, and consistent plan for workplace safety.
OSHA standards require that training meets several critical requirements, one of which is the competent person requirement.
What are the Competent Person Training Requirements?
Competent person means accountability is built into the job site. The competent person has extensive training and experience in the industry (like construction) and also understands OSHA regulations like utility location, PPE, hazardous atmosphere, and more.
