Free COVID-19 Safety Training for Direct Care Workers

​With funding from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), The University of Southern Maine’s Cutler Institute has developed a no-cost, web-based COVID-19 safety training for direct care workers. The training focuses on the safety of the worker and covers the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations for stopping the spread of coronavirus in home and community-based settings.
Why is this training important?
Direct care workers play a key role in supporting vulnerable people and their families during this pandemic. By implementing and following infection prevention practices at your workplace, you can keep yourself and the individuals you care for safe. Participants may earn a certificate of completion after taking a short post-test.

The training is:

  • Free and easy to use.
  • Accessible via computer, tablet, or smart phone.
  • Approximately 90 minutes in length. Start and stop at your convenience and pick-up where you left off!
  • Focused on specific risks of COVID-19 direct care settings and ways to keep safe.
