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

OSHA has not yet specified requirements for retraining or recertification for Ionizing Radiation Hazards General Industry standard 29 CFR � 1910.1096. However, according to OSHA 2254:

Other OSHA standards make it the employer's responsibility to limit certain job assignments to employees who are "certified," "competent," or "qualified" — meaning that they have had special previous training, in or out of the workplace.

Due to the serious health consequences of exposure to ionizing radiation, we recommend annual retraining of employees.
