Cal/OSHA has unveiled two training modules for COVID-19.  They are located at https://trainingacademy.dir.ca.gov/page/on-demand-training-covid19.

The Employers course is designed for managers, supervisors, foremen, lead persons, and other people in charge of overseeing other workers or the health and safety of workers. The Workers course is designed for workers who do not fill any kind of supervisory or lead role.  The first 17 minutes of the Employer training is identical to the Worker Training, so managers, supervisors, etc. do not need to do both trainings.

NOTE: Users who complete these online courses will earn certificates of completion. Completion of this training, alone, does not constitute compliance with an employer’s legal obligations to comply with safety and health requirements under California law. The training courses are designed to be used as part of an employer’s safety program and are not complete trainings on their own. For training to be effective, employers must train their workers on information and procedures specific to their own workplaces. To take a course, users must register by providing their name and email address. Any personal information provided by users will be used by this training environment solely to track course progress and award the certificate upon completion.
