COVID-19 Training Provisions for Kentucky Employers
To learn more, view our list of states with COVID-19 programs in place.
Kentucky’s Healthy at Work provisions, effective as of July 10, 2020, require reopening businesses to meet minimum requirements, including educating and training “all individuals, including employees, temporary employees, contractors, vendors, customers, etc.” regarding the protocols in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
This training must be provided during normal business hours at no cost to the individual. Kentucky’s protocols also require entities to designate a “Healthy at Work” Officer who will be responsible for compliance with this guidance and any other guidance the state provides.
What Should COVID-19 Training Include in Kentucky?In order to reopen, Kentucky businesses must also provide employee training specifically on how to isolate individuals suspected or confirmed of COVID-19 and how to report cases.
Elements of the Kentucky Healthy at Work provisions that would be appropriate as part of employee COVID-19 training include, but are not limited to:
- Face covering requirements (who must wear them, when are they not required, etc.);
- Using gloves when touching high-contact surfaces and disinfecting these surfaces thereafter;
- Reducing capacity in common areas (such as lobbies, waiting rooms, break rooms, etc.);
- Daily temperature and/or health check procedures;
- Coronavirus testing policies; and
- How to fulfill contact notification responsibilities with Local and State health officials.
COVID-19 Safety Awareness Online TrainingThis week, Lion launched the COVID-19 Employee Safety Awareness Online Course to help US workplaces re-open safely. As facilities nationwide begin to re-open, it is crucial that employees know how to protect themselves and their co-workers from exposure to COVID-19.
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

I like the consistency of Lion workshops. The materials are well put together and instructors are top notch!
Permitting, Compliance & Environmental Manager
The instructor was excellent. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer.
I chose Lion's online webinar because it is simple, effective, and easily accessible.

Best instructor ever! I was going to take my DOT training w/a different provider, but based on this presentation, I will also be doing my DOT training w/Lion!
Hazardous Waste Professional
I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.

I can't say enough how pleased I was with this course! Everything finally makes sense.
The instructor created a great learning environment.
CAD & Environmental Manager
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
No comparison. Lion has the best RCRA training ever!!
