COVID-19 Safe Workplace Training
Virginia COVID-19 Workplace Training Requirements
Certain Virginia employers are required to provide COVID-19 safe workplace training. The Virginia Standard For Infectious Disease Prevention: SARS-CoV-2 Virus That Causes COVID-19, 16 VAC 25-22 requires employers to provide COVID-19 safety training to all employees when any job hazard or task in the workplace is classified above “lower risk” exposure.
All “lower risk” places of employment must provide employees with basic written or oral information on COVID-19 hazards and measures to minimize exposure. Providing the training required for job hazards or tasks otherwise classified as higher risk also meets this requirement.
Employers must maintain written certification for each employee trained, including employee name and physical or electronic signature, the training date, and the name of the person or entity that conducted or prepared the training materials.
Retraining is required when (1) the employer has reason to believe that any affected employee who has already been trained does not have the necessary understanding and skill required, such as changes in the workplace or job tasks performed, (2) there are changes to the employer’s Infectious Disease and Preparedness Plan, or (3) inadequacies in an affected employee’s knowledge or use of workplace control measures indicate the employee has not retained the requisite understanding or skill.
