Training is done to ensure that the purpose and function of the energy control program are understood by employees and that the knowledge and skills required for the safe application, usage, and removal of the energy controls are acquired by employees.
OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard, also known as HAZCOM is a federal regulation (29 CFR 1910.1200) that specifies that when hazardous chemicals are present in the workplace employees have a right to know about the risks involved with storing and handling such substances.
