OSHA's Focus On Training Compliance Is Growing

An article in Reliable Plant magazine reports on a speech made by Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis in which she announced new worker training initiatives to be implemented by OSHA. The article reports that "effective April 28th, OSHA compliance officers will check not only that the training has been provided, but that it was provided in a format that the workers being trained can understand."

The article explains what this means is that:

"Employees must be instructed in both a language and vocabulary that they can understand. For example, if an employee does not speak or comprehend English, instruction must be provided in a language the employee can understand. Similarly, if the employee's vocabulary is limited, the training must account for that limitation."
