Electrical safety training is an OSHA and an NFPA 70E® requirement. In the case of high voltage work, some training is required annually if the skills are not used regularly.

A critical step that is often left out of training is the opportunity to interact with a subject matter expert (SME). OSHA has criticized online and DVD training because this critical part is often missing. If a worker can’t ask questions of an SME, learning may not have occurred. Training must be documented and be effective in driving understanding and behavior to meet the OSHA requirements.

For Answers from the Experts

Using Rubber Glove Protectors as Work Gloves 
Does anyone have any additional resources that definitively say they (leather protectors) "shall not" be worn as work gloves and shall only be used for the protection of the rubber glove?

Replacing a Hard Hat 
What's the regulation for replacing a hard hat? I can't find any ruling on this, only recommendations.
