Disclaimers - OSHA Training Requirements
- The OSHA training requirements listed on this website have been excerpted from Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Note that additional training requirements may appear in certain other consensus standards (ANSI, NFPA, etc.) incorporated by reference in the various parts of the OSHA CFR, and are therefore mandatory.
- The information presented on the website is only intended to provide users with a generic, non-exhaustive overview of the OSHA training requirements for specific standards-related topics. Most requirements for posting information, warning signs, labels, and the like are excluded from this information, as are most references to the qualifications of people assigned to test workplace conditions or equipment.
- 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).
- Moreover, because interpretations and enforcement policy may change over time, the reader should consult administrative interpretations and decisions by the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission and the courts. This information is also available on the OSHA website (osha.gov).
- Some states have implemented their own OSHA-approved state plan OSHA program with regulations affecting employee training that could differ from Federal OSHA’s, so consult your state regulations where applicable.
- In the absence of applicable training requirements for a particular work activity, hazardous substance, tool or piece of equipment or machinery, employers are encouraged to refer to manufacturers’ recommendations for safety training, where available, as well as those listed in applicable voluntary consensus standards.
