Health and Safety Online Training Certification

Crude oil, also known as Crude Petroleum and Sweet Crude, is volatile and flammable and may cause flash fires. If ingested, aspiration (the entry of crude oil into the trachea and lungs) may occur causing lung damage or death.

OSHA requires that employers provide their employees with working conditions that are free of known dangers.

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

OSHA has not specified any time frame for required retraining or recertification for Crude Oil Hazards. Since there is no OSHA standard dealing with this specific hazard the 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.
