National Summary
Many federal environmental, safety, and transportation rules contain requirements to train employees to protect themselves, the public, or the environment from workplace hazards. A few requirements are very prescriptive (e.g., detailed steps to certification), but most are "performance-based" in that they set qualitative goals (e.g., effective, lead to understanding, demonstrate proficiency) that allow the employer to determine the best way to achieve the desired outcome.
