According to OSHA, “If the date for refresher training has lapsed, the need to repeat the initial training must be determined based on the employee’s familiarity with safety and health procedures used on site. The employee should take the next available refresher training course. There should be a record in the employee’s file indicating why the training has been delayed and when the training will be completed.”
According to OSHA, “Computer-based training may meet some refresher training requirements, provided that it covers topics relevant to workers’ assigned duties. It must be supplemented by the opportunity to ask questions of a qualified trainer and by an assessment of the hands-on performance of work tasks.”
According to OSHA, “Refresher training may be given in segments so long as the required 8 hours have been completed by the employee’s anniversary date.”
