Awareness is the key to preventing the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19 in our workplaces. Most employers are now faced with creating protection plans and training for employees concerning COVID-19. TEXO has created this online training module to assist with the awareness training of COVID-19 required for compliance. Resources used to create the training were collected from OSHA, CDC, World Health Organization and Texas Health and Human Services.

2020 has been difficult – but we know positive things can come out of difficult situations.  We have learned several things from this crazy year:
  • We can productively video conference over the internet (saving fuel, time and energy).
  • We need to openly discuss the dynamics of our industry.
  • We need each other.
Purpose: To facilitate membership communication in a video conference based roundtable discussion with 10‑15 people about a current topic.
