    How often is LOTO training required?

    I took level 3 in april and had this question on my test, i cannot find anything online or through osha that states a set time period. i believe the test had answer choices of - every year, every 2 years, every 3 years, every 4 years.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated

    Only thing I can find is what our safety office refers to as the reason we are required annual training:

    How often do I need to review my lockout/tagout procedures?
    Employees are required to review their procedures at least once a year to ensure that they provide adequate worker protection. As part of the review, employers must correct any deviations and inadequacies identified in the energy-control procedure or its application.

    It's not OSHA requirement for training but a requirement to keep personnel up to date on procedural changes.

    NFPA 70E Article 110.2(B)(3) specifies a few separate conditions for LOTO retraining:

    Retraining in the lockout/tagout procedures shall be performed as follows:

    (1) When the procedures are revised
    (2) At intervals not to exceed 3 years
    (3) When supervision or annual inspections indicate that the employee is not complying with the lockout/tagout procedures
