The health and safety of all workers should be a priority for employers, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, whether they are working onsite, at home, or plan on returning to work. Workplaces in Canada must take every precaution reasonable to protect their employees from the transmission of COVID-19, and can do so with workplace risk assessment and safety plans, which outline the steps to reduce exposure; procedures to monitor exposure and health; and what to do if anyone reports or shows signs or symptoms of infection.
This free e-course is comprised of two modules that discuss the eight steps for planning and conducting a COVID-19 workplace risk assessment and the six steps in planning and evaluating a COVID-19 workplace safety plan.
Participants will learn about both work and personal factors to consider when assessing and preventing the risk of exposure, reviewing a safety plan to ensure it is effective, and keeping up to date with current COVID-19 guidelines.
