Case Study: You may be aware that OSHA requires detailed reporting of at-work injuries and illnesses. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics also releases reports based on these findings. In 2017, there were 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses reported by private industry employers. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, this means that for every 100 full-time employees, 2.8 were injured or fell ill on the job.While that number may seem high, it represents a decline in nonfatal workplace injury and illness. According to estimates from the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII), private industry employers reported 45,800 fewer nonfatal injury and illness cases in 2017 than the year before.

Key Takeaways: As we continue to become more aware of workplace hazards (and continue to implement safety measures), we also continue to improve workplace safety and its subsequent statistics. Be a part of the solution and not the problem. Commit yourself to workplace safety and to promoting and following your workplace's safety and health plan.

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

OSHA 29 CFR 1926.503 Subpart M Fall protection states:

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 (a) 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 fall protection systems or equipment to be used render previous training obsolete; or
  • Inadequacies in an affected employee's knowledge or use of fall protection systems or equipment indicate that the employee has not retained the requisite understanding or skill.

  • When OSHA has not specified any time frame for required retraining or recertification for other aspects of this course, OSH Act general duty clause, section 5(a)(1), 29 U.S.C. 654(b)(1) defines the standard which provides that:
    (a) Each employer -

    (1) shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.

    A recognized hazard is a danger recognized by the employer's industry or industry in general, by the employer, or by common sense. The general duty clause does not apply if there is an OSHA standard dealing with the hazard, unless the employer knows that the standard does not adequately address the hazard.

    Therefore it is our recommendation that workers be retrained at least every three years.
