Vermont Requires COVID-19 Training for All Employees in the State
Vermont’s Governor issued an Executive Order requiring all employers to provide COVID-19 safe workplace training. The training must address at a minimum:
- The signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and an explanation of how the disease is spread.
- Information on appropriate social distancing and personal hygiene practices.
- The types, proper use, limitations, location, handling, decontamination, removal, and disposal of any PPE being used.
Vermont has developed training materials, which consist of a 73-page PDF of PowerPoint slides. “Employers may adopt another training program that meets or exceeds the VOSHA-provided standard…which shall not be less restrictive than those developed by VOSHA.”
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.
Clear Law Institute provides online compliance training for more than 1,000 employers, handles roll-out of training to employees, supports tech issues, and tracks course completions.
