FAST Series for Tractor Drivers: Section Four--Background Information

This document is available in spanish . (Este documento está disponible en español .)

On the following pages are copies of safety training logs that you can use to document the training you provide your employees. Employees do not have to sign or initial the forms to make the forms official. However, you should attempt to get the employee's signature or initial.

Under OSHA rules you are required to keep these records for three years unless you have fewer than 10 employees. In that case you are required to maintain "a log of instructions provided to the employee with respect to the hazards unique to the employee's job assignment when first hired or assigned new duties." General Industry Safety Order (GISO) subsection 3203 (b) (2) Exception No. 1.

Also, "training records of employees who have worked for less than one (1) year for the employer need not be retained beyond the term of employment if they are provided to the employee upon termination of employment." GISO subsection 3203 (b) (2) Exception No. 2.
