New Hampshire COVID Training for Businesses

New Hampshire is currently following the new, modified Stay at Home 2.0 order implemented by Governor Sununu. The phased approach to reopening includes Universal Guidance that is applicable to all businesses in the state, which are "bare minimum standards," as well as industry-specific COVID guidelines for select business sectors.


The Universal Guidelines require all businesses, organizations, and individual business operators to provide their employees with training on the NH COVID requirements and their industry-specific guidelines. Required protocols that should be covered in employee training include health screening, cleaning and disinfection, and operational changes to enforce social distancing and minimize contact. Non-compliance can result in fines of up to $2,000 per violation.


Opus has developed COVID training programs that comply with both New Hampshire COVID guidelines and OSHA safety requirements. Opus's text-based training is accessible to your employees and enables you to promote a safe workplace for your staff and customers.
