August 18, 2020 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has released a new e-course to help organizations across Canada safely return to work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Pandemic Planning: Reopening for Business course will guide employers, supervisors, managers and workers on how to prepare for a safe return to work, and what controls are needed to be put in place to protect everyone and minimize the impact of the pandemic.
Topics covered in the course include how coronavirus spreads and its symptoms, employer and worker duties and responsibilities in a COVID-19 return to business plan, methods of control (including cleaning and disinfecting), how to manage the workplace and prepare workers for a safe return, and understanding the impacts of a pandemic on mental health.
CCOHS’ courses are developed by subject specialists in the field, and reviewed by representatives from labour, employers and government to ensure the content and approach are unbiased and credible.
Pandemic Planning: Reopening for Business is available on the CCOHS website in French and English.
