Who Should Take This Course?
Our Personal Protective Equipment Program and Selection – PPE Training course should be taken by workers who wear PPE on the job. This course is designed to introduce employees to Personal Protective Equipment programs, and the proper selection of Personal Protective Equipment. This course should be used as a training tool within a comprehensive Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) program designed for employees.
Per 29 CFR 1910.132(f)(3):
When the employer has reason to believe that any affected employee who has already been trained does not have the understanding and skill required by paragraph (f)(2) of this section, the employer shall retrain each such employee. Circumstances where retraining is required include, but are not limited to, situations where:
Changes in the workplace render previous training obsolete; or
Changes in the types of PPE to be used render previous training obsolete; or
Inadequacies in an affected employee’s knowledge or use of assigned PPE indicate that the employee has not retained the requisite understanding or skill.
The employer shall verify that each affected employee has received and understood the required training through a written certification that contains the name of each employee trained, the date(s) of training, and that identifies the subject of the certification.
