Measure Safety Training Effectiveness: Complying with Federal OSHA ‘Verify Competent Performance’ Requirements - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to measure the effectiveness of your safety training to ensure compliance with OSHA’s verify competent performance requirements for general and construction industries.


Measuring the effectiveness of training at producing behavior change or performance improvement is challenging. Yet, many OSHA rules require employers to verify employees’ competent performance after training. According to OSHA letters of interpretation, verifying competent performance means that a qualified trainer must observe or otherwise confirm trainees’ ability to carry out tasks properly and safely or their understanding of key concepts covered in the training. 

OSHA rules for forklifts, personal protective equipment, respiratory protection, slips and falls (i.e., walking and working surfaces), confined spaces, lockout/tagout, electrical safety, hazard communication, lead, asbestos, and HAZWOPER are among the many rules that require this verification.

Simply having a worker complete a quiz after taking a course is not enough to verify competent performance according to OSHA’s definition. There are ways to verify competent performance effectively, even in cases where online training is part of the training program. But, where do you start?

Use this on-demand webinar to find out. Chip Darius, OHST, CSHO, CIT of Safety Priority Consultants, will cover OSHA’s requirements for verifying that training has achieved its intended purpose, methods to measure training effectiveness, and more.

After attending this webinar, you’ll be able to:

  • Identify the OSHA rules that require some form of competent performance verification—and if and when ANSI Z490.1 may also apply
  • Select and apply effective methods of verifying competent performance
  • Properly document your evaluations of training effectiveness to aid in OSHA compliance
  • And more!

And, as a bonus for attending, you’ll get BLR’s Training Planning checklist!
