MYTH 5: Refresher training is required every 2 years.

False! This may come as a surprise, but there is actually no specified interval requirement when it comes to ‘refresher training.’ 

Did you know that the AS/NZS/IEC 60079.14 only states that “appropriate continuing education or training shall be undertaken by personnel on a regular basis”? While it may seem a bit loose, it is intentionally so.

The reason for this broad requirement is to give individuals and companies the power to determine what training interval and content is most appropriate for them and their operation. Most organisations consider the following when determining what continued education is necessary:

Specific work requirements

How frequently team members are exposed to EEHA

How informed team members are in regard to standard updates

Projects and workplaces vary considerably and as such it’s essential that training programs be determined individually rather than be an overarching mandate. This allows for better results for both companies, individuals and final products.
