Rhode Island COVID Training for Businesses

Rhode Island is in Phase 3 of COVID Guidance under executive orders from Governor Raimondo. The state now permits indoor gatherings of varying sizes and has published guidelines for each business sector with COVID guidelines they must follow to reopen.

All businesses, regardless of sector, are required to implement COVID screening for employees entering their workplace. In addition, sectors such as restaurants and essential services must provide COVID training programs to employees on of the requirements laid out for their business. Failure to comply with the Rhode Island COVID requirements and sector-specific guidance can result in fines of up to $500 per violation.

Opus has developed COVID training programs that comply with both Rhode Island 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.
