OSHA defines a “competent person” as someone who “is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in [their] surroundings or working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous, or dangerous to employees.” A competent person has the authorization to take “prompt corrective measures” to minimize or eliminate hazards. They have enough training and/or experience to be “capable of identifying workplace hazards relating to the specific operation and has the authority to correct them.” Some standards do have additional, specific requirements that must be met in order for an employee to be considered a competent person.

In line with OSHA requirements, anyone who works with electricity must receive training prior to working on their own. OSHA 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, OSHA’s standard 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.
