Click to Learn More How often is retraining or recertification required?

It is a good practice to re-train employees in any of the following circumstances:

  • The employer has reason to believe a worker lacks the skill or knowledge to safely use, erect, or dismantle a scaffold
  • Changes in the worksite that create new hazards
  • Changes in the types of scaffolds or fall protection used

Another good practice is for employers to re-train their employees on a recurring basis, documented in their safety program.
