I try to train upon hire, when new procedures or hazards are added or change, AND require refresher training and testing annually. This does not always happen in the labs of faculty who do not communicate with me often.

A quick poll of any who care to answer: how often do you require training for personnel in areas that fall under OSHA's Laboratory Standard? Do you follow what the regulation says (upon hire, when hazards change, etc.), do you train everyone annually, or do you do something else? If you require refresher training, does it look different than the initial training?
Thanks in advance,
