Depending on whether you are federally or provincially regulated the specific elements will be slightly different, but employees must be aware of the hazards involved in the job and be able to safely do the job after training.
It’s not how often but when. Anytime your employee takes on a new role or task they need to be trained to do so safely.
There is always the initial orientation and when employees return after an extended leave. An example of a new task is moving from a van style trailer to a flatbed where training would be needed on load securement and tarping
Start looking for those areas where damage or injury risks are greatest and see if you are training your employees to safely handle those hazards.
