Doers: 2 | Form: Cognitive Task | Phase: Implementation | Type: Pre-Event | Level: 3 | Code:
Start: Jan 29, 2020 | When: | Duration: 5 Minute(s)
  • The next Steps cover Cal/OSHA safety regulations for Training. Where appropriate, we have referenced the code from Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations.

    The topics we will cover in this isoBlog are:

    -Ineffective and Inadequate Training
    -Effective Training
    -Training Requirements

    After each of the next Steps, select the 'successful' response to indicate that you have read and understand the Step.

    Select 'successful' now and proceed.
  • Ineffective and Inadequate Training

    Each year serious and fatal injuries are caused by ineffective and inadequate training of employees. Employees who are newly hired, given new job duties, or who are using tools and equipment that they are unfamiliar with have a greater risk of being injured.
  • Effective Training

    Effective training relates directly to the work being done by employees. It instructs employees on general safe work practices and also provides specific information on the hazards they may encounter in their jobs.

    In general, effective training instructs employees on how to work safely and:

    -Communicates information in a language and by methods understandable to all employees (including those who do not speak English, or have limited comprehension of English)

    -Helps establish a relationship with employees to improve trust and communication

    -Is participatory and involves employees by drawing on their own real life experiences

    -Allows group hazard identification and problem solving by means of demonstrations, asking questions, discussing ideas, and providing observations and stories

    -Provides opportunities to demonstrate newly learned safe work practices and the safe use of tools, equipment, and chemicals

    -Provides concrete safety and health changes in how work is set-up and performed

    - Is repeated as often as necessary

    -Encourages employees to express safety concerns and to make suggestions
  • Training Requirements

    The specific Cal/OSHA training requirements that apply to each worksite depend on the work activities that employees are involved. Cal/ OSHA has a list of Safety and Health Training and Instruction Requirements organized by training topics.

    This list has requirements contained in the Construction Safety Orders (CSOs) and General Industry Safety Orders (GISOs).

    The Safety Orders (SOs) require training employees when:

    -They are first hired. 1510(a), 3203(a)

    -They will operate machinery and equipment (see the isoBlog titled 'Qualified Person' in the 'unscheduled' tab above)

    -They are given a new job assignment for which they have not previously received training. 3203(a)(7)(C)

    -They are exposed to known job-site hazards, such as poisons, hazardous materials and gases, harmful plants and animals, etc. 1510(c)

    -New substances, processes, procedures, or equipment are introduced to the workplace and represent a new hazard. 3203(a)(7)(D)

    -The employer is made aware of a new or previously unrecognized hazard. 3203(a)(7)(E)

    -Supervisors need to familiarize themselves with the safety and health hazards to which employees under their immediate direction and control may be exposed. 3203(a)(7)(F)

    -Tailgate or toolbox safety meeting are held (at least every 10 working days)
    Exception: for tunneling operations tailgate meetings must be held weekly.

    Note: Cal/OSHA has a large number of regulations which require employee training. The list above includes only some of the Cal/OSHA regulations which require training. The complete set of Cal/OSHA regulations in Title 8 can be found at
