Employee Training Required in New Hampshire for Businesses Reopening during Covid-19
As part of its New Hampshire Stay at Home Plan 2.0, the state has issued Covid -19 Reopening Guidance – Universal Guidelines for all businesses and organizations, which require employee health and safety training upon reopening during Covid-19.
These guidelines, which apply to all businesses allowed to reopen in New Hampshire, specifically state that “[e]mployers must develop policies for worker protection and provide training to all staff prior to assigning cleaning tasks.” As stated in the guidelines, they apply “to businesses and organizations that have been deemed essential and remained open during the Stay at Home Order and those that are re-opening all or a portion of their operations.”
In addition, retailers may open their physical facilities to workers, customers, and the public, and resume in person operations if they operate in accordance with the COVID-19 Reopening Guidance – Retail. These guidelines require retailers to provide additional employee training to that discussed above. Retailers must also train employees on:
- the use of cloth face coverings per CDC guidelines; and
- provide regular updates and training for employees about personal COVID-19 mitigation and store safeguards based on CDC guidelines.
Clear Law Institute has created an interactive, self-paced online training that complies with this training requirement, and similar requirements in other states, in addition to the OSHA guidelines that apply nationwide. Clear Law Institute’s COVID-19 Safe Workplace Training is fully narrated and includes numerous interactive animations, video demonstrations, and exercises.
