The University of Southern Maine, in conjunction with the Maine Small Business Development Center, has launched a series of free online training modules intended to help employers and workers in the retail and food service industries prevent workplace violence.
Geared toward businesses with fewer than 250 employees, three separate modules are available, each with specific focus areas:
- Employer and manager (two hours): Identifying risks and different types of violence, warning signs of violence, deescalating violent situations, creating a workplace violence prevention plan, and reporting to OSHA
- Employee (one hour): Identifying risks and different types of violence, warning signs of violence, deescalating violent situations, employees’ role in workplace safety, and OSHA whistleblower protections
- Trainer (one hour): Warning signs of violence, deescalating violent situations, identifying risk factors for violence and creating a workplace violence prevention plan
Each module is self-paced, allowing users to log in and resume learning when convenient. A certificate of completion is available for download once a user finishes a course.
