OSHA regulates the use of dip tanks when the dip tank contains a liquid other than water. Standard 29 1910.123 outlines the regulations where tanks are used to change an object through various means:
- Altering the surface
- Changing the character
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.124 addresses the construction of a dip tank. A dip tank must be strong enough to withstand any expected load and have proper ventilation.
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.125 addresses the construction of a dip tank and the necessary safety controls that must be in a workplace where dip tanks are used.
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.126 addresses the additional requirements that apply to tempering tanks, as well as coating and cleaning processes.
Who must take this course?
Many industries use dip tanks. The chemicals used in dip tanks can be hazardous to handle. It is important to understand the risks that can arise from using dipping, coating, and cleaning processes, as well as how to properly handle the chemicals used in their operation. Being familiar with the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards for these processes will help minimize the associated risks.

According to OSHA when the employer has reason to believe that any affected employee who has already been trained does not have the understanding and skill required. Circumstances where retraining is required include, but are not limited to, situations where:
(1) Changes in the workplace render previous training obsolete; or
(2) Changes in the types of PPE to be used render previous training obsolete; or
(3) Inadequacies in an affected employee's knowledge or use of assigned PPE indicate that the employee has not retained the requisite understanding or skill.
