COVID-19 Training for Vermont Employers
To learn more, view our list of states with COVID-19 programs in place.
The State of Vermont now requires employers in the Green Mountain State to provide COVID-19-related training for employees.
The state’s COVID-19 training requirement was created by Addendum 11 to Executive Order 01-20. Employee training must cover the health and safety requirements outlined by the Vermont Occupational Safety and Health Agency (VOSHA).
According to the Vermont executive order, employees must be trained at a minimum on:
- The signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and an explanation of how the disease is spread;
- Information on appropriate social distancing and personal hygiene practices, including those set forth in the addendum and applicable guidance set forth by the Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD); and
- The types, proper use, limitations, location, handling, decontamination, removal, and disposal of any PPE used.
For employees already working, COVID-19 training was required no later than May 4, 2020. New or returning workers should complete training when they are hired or upon their return to work. Healthcare workers, first responders, and others already trained in infectious control and personal protective equipment/universal precautions are excepted from the new COVID-19 training requirement.

COVID-19 Safety Awareness Training for EmployeesTo help US workplaces open safely and provide required COVID-19 training for employees, Lion launched the COVID-19 Employee Safety Awareness Online Course.
The course prepares employees to:
- Recognize signs, symptoms, and risk factors for COVID-19
- Describe how the COVID-19 disease is transmitted
- Follow recommended hygiene and work protocols to prevent exposure
- Properly use and care for PPE and face coverings, when required
These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
I chose Lion's online webinar because it is simple, effective, and easily accessible.
Environmental Health & Safety Technician
The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.
Material Production/Logistics Manager
The instructor was great, explaining complex topics in terms that were easily understandable and answering questions clearly and thoroughly.
I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.
Director of Regulatory Affairs
I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
Lion's information is very thorough and accurate. Presenter was very good.
Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
