Abstract
The responsibilities of employers to conduct occupational safety and health training programs and of employees to learn and apply what was taught in these programs were discussed. The authors argued that the provision of and active participation in such training by employers and employees should be considered an ethical responsibility and was termed the training ethic. A discussion was presented on the view that the training ethic is simply an extension of the right to know regulations that have been established over the past 20 years. The ethics involved in presenting proper employee training were examined. Problems with training programs such as having adequately prepared trainers, divided loyalty of trainers to their patients as well as the organization for which they work, political motives inherent in most organizations, biased trainers, violation of confidences, use of "cure all" programs, providing honest outcome results, and abuse of trainees were explored.
