Additional Training

This training should be combined with company specific training on the employer's Industrial Hygiene practices.

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 their 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.
