12 Example of Training Matrix

13 Record Keeping and Documentation  Develop your IIPP and branch from there…  Develop your individual procedures for the Cal OSHA-required topics  Create a training matrix including all employees and all training topics (not limited to safety)  Use a meeting/training class sign-in sheet for all employee meetings  Inspect your brewery and keep a record of findings and corrective actions  Start a Cal OSHA 300 log and injury report file

14 How to Organize Procedures/Records  Procedures tell you what to do, how it will be done, by whom, and when  Put them in a common binder and make it accessible to all employees (electronic is OK)  Records are written evidence that you have followed your procedures >>>  Put hard copies into folders by subject  Transfer some (inspections, training) to spreadsheets

15 Procedures Include:  IIPP  Safety Inspection  Confined Space Entry  Emergency Action Plan  Lockout Tag Out  Hazard Communication  Work Rules  Personal Protective Equipment  Accident Investigation (include forms)  Training  Office Safety  Forklift

16 Records (for folders) Include:  Training matrix (ongoing)  Sign in sheets (indefinite)  Cal OSHA 300 Log (5 year retention)  Injury reports (5 year retention)  Inspection reports (one year retention)  Confined space permits (maintain for 2 years)  Employee suggestions (one year)  Agency correspondence (indefinite)  Hazard assessment (current)  Equipment lockout procedures (current)  Medical surveillance records in employee files (30 years)  Employee exposure records (term of employment +30 years)  SDSs (30 year archive)
