HAMILTON, ONT. — A new mobile app is making the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety’s (CCOHS) workplace health and safety resources on COVID-19 more accessible to workers in Canada.
The CCOHS Safe Work app houses the centre’s collection of over 120 COVID-19 resources, including industry and sector-specific tip sheets, infographics, videos and other guidance materials, states a release.
Users can search the app by topic or type of resource, save items to their favourites list and share videos and other resources with colleagues. Once downloaded to a mobile device, an internet connection is no longer needed to run the app so it can be used in remote places.
The app covers a variety of topics including how the coronavirus spreads, responding to COVID-19 in the workplace, health and safety planning for employers, hazard and risk assessment identification, rapid testing, screening tools, vaccines, worker rights and responsibilities, returning to the workplace, working remotely and the importance of disconnecting from work, adds the release.
