Why do I need OSHA 10 construction equivalent training?

(Choose one of the two options, depending on whether or not your training has specific standards)
( OPTION 1 if there are specific standards:
In line with regulations, anyone who (description of who this standard covers. Example: “operates heavy equipment”) must receive training prior to (mirror previous description. Exaple: “operating the machine on their own”). Requirements for refresher training related to forklifts or other processes are very specific. Most other equipment doesn’t have such specific requirements, but it’s wise to follow the same guidelines.
When it comes to refresher training, the standards in some instances (like forklifts) are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency. (If your topic has specific retraining requirements, rewrite previous paragraph to indicate how often the person must be retrained.)
( OPTION 2 if there are no specific standards:
While OSHA doesn’t have a specific standards for workplace civility, harassment, or discrimination. However, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that "is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees."
This means employers have a legal and ethical obligation to promote a work environment that is free from (hazards specific to your topic. Example: discrimination and aggressive behaviors in any form). You and your coworkers have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety, equality, and well-being of all. )
