COVID-19: Workplace Safety
Recognize how COVID-19 spreads and the types of work that present a high risk for exposure
Identify actions individuals can take to prevent the spread of COVID-19
Identify your employer’s responsibilities related to protecting you from COVID-19
Recognize workplace controls that will help to prevent the spread of COVID-19
The federal government issued guidance in June 2021 indicating most employers no longer need to take steps to protect against COVID-19 exposure in workplaces in which all employees are fully vaccinated, unless otherwise required to do so by federal, state, or local laws and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance. This training focuses primarily on the steps employers should take to protect unvaccinated or otherwise at-risk workers in the workplace.
It addresses the hazards posed by the coronavirus (COVID-19), how it is transmitted, its symptoms and how to respond to them, and the types of work that present a high risk of exposure. You will also learn how you can prevent the spread of COVID-19, your employer’s responsibilities related to protecting you from exposure to the virus, and the controls in your workplace that will help prevent its spread. This training is subject to change as research on the virus and its variants continues.
