To comply with the Title 8 – (Cal/OSHA) COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standards, the District is required to make COVID-19 prevention training available to all employees. The District has a written COVID Prevention Program (CPP) and has created a training program to educate District employees on the District’s CPP to facilitate COVID prevention at its facilities. The District has chosen to offer the CPP training program as online training. This training provides education on the following topics:
- Employer prevention policies/protocols
- COVID-19 related benefits
- COVID-19 is an infectious disease spread through the air
- Importance of physical distancing and wearing face coverings
- Other controls to reduce transmission
- Importance of frequent hand washing and use of hand sanitizer
- Proper use of face coverings
- COVID-19 Symptoms – not reporting to work and getting tested
The District utilizes Keenan SafeColleges Online Training to provide the CPP training. The training takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, and the District will email all employees to advise them about this training and provide a link to access the training, for those who chose to take advantage of the opportunity.
Faculty will be eligible to receive flex credit for completion of the training. Other District health and safety training offered by the District in support of COVID prevention efforts at SRJC will follow existing bargaining unit agreements for general safety training.
Additional or specialized health and safety training may be offered to one or more District employees at the discretion of the District and as it complies with existing collective bargaining agreements when required to support the health and safety of the District or to meet regulatory compliance requirements for the prevention of COVID at SRJC. This additional Covid prevention health and safety training may be conducted either in-person or online, or both, depending on the needs of individual training program requirements.
Please contact Robin McHale if you have questions about the District’s requirements for COVID prevention training.
