COVID-19 Training and Protocols for Texas Employers
To learn more, view our list of states with COVID-19 programs in place.
On July 2, the State of Texas issued a revised checklist of minimum standards for employers and event organizers to follow to protect workers and limit the spread of COVID-19. This latest revision requires training for all employees and contractors on how to protect themselves and others from COVID-19 infection and how to prevent transmission.
The “Health protocols for your employees and contractors” section of the checklist, linked below, states that all employees and contractors must recieve COVID-19 training that covers “appropriate cleaning and disinfection, hand hygiene, and respiratory etiquette.”
Appropriate COVID-19 training may include, but is not limited to:
- How to establish and maintain adequate social distancing;
- Face covering etiquette and requirements;
- Coughing and/or sneezing etiquette;
- Proper hand washing protocols as well as proper hand sanitizer usage; and
- Guidance on cleaning and sanitizing high-touch surfaces such as workstations, equipment, screens, doorknobs, and restrooms.

The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
Lion is my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.
The instructor did an excellent job presenting a very dry subject; keeping everyone interested and making it enjoyable.
Hazardous Waste Professional
Our instructor was very dynamic and kept everyone's interest. Hazmat shipping can be a dry, complicated topic but I was engaged the entire time.
Senior Director of EH&S
Lion provided an excellent introduction to environmental regulations, making the transition to a new career as an EHS specialist less daunting of a task. Drinking from a fire hose when the flow of water is lessened, is much more enjoyable!
The instructor made the class very enjoyable and catered to the needs of our group.
Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.

Lion was very responsive to my initial questions and the website was user friendly.
Supply Chain Director
