Reducing Infectious Disease including Covid-19 in the Workplace

Topic: Reducing Infectious Disease including Covid-19 in the Workplace

Course Time: 2.5 Hours

This course was designed for learners to be introduced to various infectious diseases that may become occupational hazards. In this climate of Covid-19 and the more contagious variant strands, it is essential to receive the latest information and data available to the worker.

Instruction includes but is not limited to:

  • OSHA Rights and Whistleblower Laws
  • Various classifications of infectious diseases
  • The hierarchy of control methods
  • How to effectively disinfect surfaces for infectious diseases
  • Emergency Temporary Standard – ETS
  • The differences between the face mask and N95 respirators
  • (SARS Cov-2) COVID–19 CDC Guidelines and Information on the Variant Strands

This instructor-led training session with multiple interactive activities will create a learning environment conducive for adult learners. There will be a kinesthetic activity on cleaning surfaces to give each learner an opportunity to prepare themselves for performing in a real-time work scenario.

We can also conduct training virtually over Zoom.

Students will receive a certificate of attendance and all handouts and informational materials used in the class.

Class is also available in Spanish.
