In the past few years, there has been a substantial increase in the interest, development, and deployment of computer-based self-directed training programs. In some situations, these training programs have been targeted to audiences with the objective of fulfilling training requirements as necessary for compliance with regulations such as OSHA’s Process Safety Management (29 CFR 1910.119). With the growth of alternative training programs, it would be prudent to ask the question: do self-directed learning programs (whether computer-based, web-based, or text-based) meet the spirit and intent of OSHA’s regulatory training requirements?
