Overview & Objectives
To stay compliant with OSHA requirements and maintain a safe workplace, construction businesses often designate a Competent Person (CP) on their job sites. Per OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1926.32(f), a CP is able to identify existing and predictable workplace conditions that create a hazardous, unsanitary, and/or dangerous site for workers. The CP is also able to resolve these hazards to create a safer environment. When your business needs to identify employees for CP status, the Employer Competent Person Requirements for Construction Course from Exceed Safety clarifies the process from start to finish.
During the Employer Competent Person Requirements for Construction Course, participants will cover important topics related to achieving Competent Person status, including:
- What defines a Competent Person
- Competent Person status requirements
- How to name a Competent Person
- Competent Person responsibilities
- Competent Person standards for California (Cal/OSHA) and other states
- Competent Person standards for other government agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
- State and federal Competent Person regulations
- How to implement the Competent Person process
- Evaluating employees for Competent Person status
- When construction regulations demand a Competent Person
At the end of the course, employers will have the knowledge needed to implement the Competent Person process to ensure adherence to all OSHA standards and compliance directives (CPLs).
