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 1904, 29 CFR 1926 and 29 CFR 1910. For example, workers must be retrained when:
• Changes in the workplace render previous training obsolete.
• Procedures being used have changed.
• Inadequacies in workers’ knowledge indicate that they do not adequately understand training.
