Construction Training Requirements
OSHA Construction Industry Training Requirements
Many standards promulgated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) explicitly require the employer to train (or instruct, or communicate, or inform . . .) employees in the safety and health aspects of their jobs. Other OSHA standards make it the employer's responsibility to limit certain job assignments to employees who are "certified," "competent," or "qualified" - meaning that they have had special previous training, in or out of the workplace. Also, the term "designated" personnel means selected or assigned by the employer or the employer's representative as being qualified to perform specific duties.
The OSHA training requirements listed below have been excerpted from Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 1926 for Construction. Some Administrative standards (Parts 1903 and 1904) and General Industry standards (Part 1910) apply to the Construction Industry as well (see list at bottom of this page). 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.
