OSHA Requirements for Designating a Competent Person

Ensure employees' designated competent persons satisfy applicable OSHA requirements.

Many employers and company managers responsible for operations and safety do not understand OSHA's requirements relating to competent persons. Often, worksites have employees with the expertise and skills to be competent persons, but are not competent persons because they lack the authority to make safety-related changes to qualify. This information will help responsible persons understand OSHA's requirements associated with competent persons and important actions required to ensure employees' designated competent persons satisfy applicable requirements. Failing to meet OSHA's requirements covering competent persons can result in a poor safety record, injuries, hospitalizations, fatalities and citations. This information is critical to employers so they can ensure an effective safety program and culture.
