ASSE Revises SH&E Training Standard

Friday, May 29, 2009

Comment | More

The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) has announced the approval and availability of the newly revised American National Standard ANSI/ASSE Z490.1-2009 Criteria for Accepted Practices in Safety, Health, and Environmental Training. The standard calls for qualified training to ensure that workers and SH&E professionals have the knowledge, skills and abilities to protect themselves and others in the workplace.

Approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) on April 21, the ANSI/ASSE Z490.1-2009 standard applies a broad range of training and training programs to specify how to adequately design, develop, deliver and evaluate training.

"The Z490 was written to provide a guide for the development and presentation of comprehensive HSE training events," says Z490 Committee Vice-Chair Frank Perry, P.E., CSP. "As health, safety and environmental professionals, we have all had the opportunity to conduct compliance training at one time or another. Occasionally, we were less than satisfied with either our presentation or with the organization of the training materials. The Z490 is the perfect guide to develop, present and evaluate each training event. If one is using a third-party trainer, the Z490 can be used as a yardstick to ensure that you are truly getting what your organization requires and what you are paying for."

The standard covers all areas of training, including training development, delivery, evaluation, and management of training and training programs. Criteria within the standard were developed by combining accepted practices in the training industry along with those in the SH&E profession. ASSE says the standard can be used as a tool by employers to assess the services of outside training providers or to audit or improve their own training programs; to train providers to assess and improve their training services; and as a basis for development and management of training and training programs. The standard has annexes and references that provide additional information and detail.

The standard is available in print and electronic format by contacting ASSE customer service at (847) 699-2929 or customerservice@asse.org.
