Vermont Requires COVID-19 Training for All Employees in the State
Vermont’s governor has issued an Executive Order that, among other things, requires that all employers provide COVID-19 training for employees. The training must address at a minimum:
a. The signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and an explanation of how the disease is spread;
b. Information on appropriate social distancing and personal hygiene practices; and
c. 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, which provides online compliance training for more than 1,000 employers, handles rolling out the training to your employees, tech support issues, and tracking course completions.
