Beside specialized training required by your industry, ie Security, Medical, Insurance, Realty, etc, there is state mandated training that ALL employers are required to provide to their employees if they meet certain criteria. Some of these training are:
- Harassment Training – This is required for all employers with 5 or more employees. Supervisors and Managers are required to receive two (2) hours of training every two (2) years. All other employees are required to receive one (1) hour of training every two (2) years. This training must be provided by an approved trainer.
- Valley Fever Training – If you are in the construction, landscaping, alteration, painting, repairing, construction maintenance, renovation, removal or wrecking of any fixed structure or its parts you are required to provide your employees with Valley Fever Training if your business is located in Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera, Merced, Monterey, San Joaquin, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Tulare or Ventura Counties. This list may be expanded if Valley Fever expands to other counties.
- Human Trafficking Awareness Training – If you are operating a hotel or motel, you are required to provide your employees with at least 20 minutes of Human Trafficking Awareness training to all employees who is likely to interact or come into contact with victims of trafficking.
- Monthly Safety/Tailgate Meetings – We highly recommend to our clients that they conduct this training on a MONTHLY basis. Workers’ Compensation is a phrase that sends chills down the spine of all employers and by conducting these meetings effectively it can help keep your workers’ compensation claims and accidents down and it will show your workers’ compensation carrier that you are being proactive in trying to keep workplace injuries to a minimum.
- COVID-19 Training – In this time of COVID, it is important that we keep safety policies and procedure at the front of mind for our employees. Once COVID does not impose a big a threat, a lot of the policies and procedures just make sense to keep in place to keep our work environments safe for our employees.
