Additional Training

This course is designed to help workers meet the OSHA Hearing Conservation Training requirement as outlined in the OSHA regulation.

Per 29 CFR 1910.95(k)(2), the training program shall be repeated annually for each employee included in the hearing conservation program. Information provided in the training program shall be updated to be consistent with changes in protective equipment and work processes.

This training should be combined with company specific training on the employer's hearing conservation program, including the proper use of hearing protection devices and the administration of audiometric tests.

When required by OSHA standards, workers must receive additional training on the specific hazards of their job.

Training providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment a company's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, students should receive site-specific training that is supplied by his or her own companies. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company specific training should be well documented.

The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.
