The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to comply with their training requirements in the workplace, which can include both initial training and refresher training that must take place annually. According to OSHA, under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act), employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace. OSHA also states that training workers to do their jobs safely is an investment that will yield fewer injuries and illnesses, better morale, lower insurance premiums, and more.
