CCOHS offers online course for safe return to work during pandemic

HAMILTON, ONT. — Two free, online courses to help workplaces and employees prepare for a safe return to work during the COVID-19 pandemic have been released by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS).

Return to Work During COVID-19 provides employers, managers, supervisors and operations staff with an overview of COVID-19 control measures and discusses how to identify actions needed to prepare the building for occupancy, recognize the importance of communication with workers and identify if controls should be kept, revised or discontinued, indicates a release. Participants also learn how to keep their workplace safe for the long-term.

Return to Work During COVID-19: Preparing Workers is intended to help employers, managers and supervisors prepare their workers for a safe return to the workplace during the COVID-19 pandemic and outlines steps to take and identify considerations when preparing workers for their return.

The courses are available in English and French. The average time to complete each of these courses is approximately 30 minutes. 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, adds the release.

“There are many factors’ businesses must consider as they reopen their workplaces during this pandemic,” said Anne Tennier, president and CEO of the CCOHS, in a statement. “There is a lot to navigate, from developing a safe return to work plan to maintaining COVID-19 workplace controls until public health restrictions are reduced. We hope these courses and guidance materials can guide workplaces in the right direction so they can stay operational and safe for the long term.”
