We encourage employers to maintain records documenting employees have been trained on appropriate safety topics as they relate to assigned job tasks. Use of a Safety Education and Training Log will provide record of when training was held, employees in attendance as well as the employees' acknowledgement that they received the training. Training records not only help you know who has received or requires training, but can demonstrate compliance with applicable safety regulations.
