Who Needs this Training?
According to OSHA All employees working in these areas:
- Those who work on jobsites and may exposed to hazards.
- Workers that may be involved in work types that may create clutter or messes on site.
- Those that train or modify training exposures.
- Those that are new to the jobsite.
Dangers of Remaining Uncertified
Poor housekeeping can be a cause of incidents, such as:
- tripping over loose objects on floors, stairs and platforms
- being hit by falling objects
- slipping on greasy, wet or dirty surfaces
- striking against projecting, poorly stacked items or misplaced material
- cutting, puncturing, or tearing the skin of hands or other parts of the body on projecting nails, wire or steel strapping
To avoid these hazards, a workplace must “maintain” order throughout a workday. Although this effort requires a great deal of management and planning, the benefits are many.

A minimum of 45 minutes is required to complete this course.
When an employer has reason to believe that an affected worker does not recognize existing hazards or proper precautions at some point after the initial training, the employer is required to provide retraining for that worker, in accordance with 29 CFR 1926 and 29 CFR 1910. For example, workers must be retrained when:
- Changes in the workplace render previous training obsolete.
- Incidents occur on site.
- Inadequacies in workers’ knowledge or hazard precautions indicate that they do not adequately understand training.
