Portland, ME — A new online training course launched by the University of Southern Maine’s Cutler Institute focuses on protecting retail workers from exposure to COVID-19.

The free 90-minute course – developed with funding from OSHA – covers retail safety protocols, specific risks in retail settings, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations to limit the spread of the disease in the workplace.

The course can be started and stopped at the user’s convenience to continue training at a different time. A downloadable certificate is available after workers complete the course.
