The Workplace Infectious Disease Prevention course introduces employees to the basic practices of identifying, reducing, eliminating and reporting hazards associated with their work. This training is designed for any worker that wants to acquire knowledge on workplace health and pandemic response.
Participants will become familiar with the standards and regulations that OSHA, the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have set in place to make sure all employees function in a healthy work environment. Full Training Brochure- click here
Recertification is very important as both federal and individual states are issuing more specific guidelines. While the training that you participated in last year meets or exceeds these guidelines it is important to keep up with the latest information and best practices. It is clear that Infectious Disease Prevention will become a required business plan even post COVID19. To recertify, a business will need to complete the two-hour training, review and update (if necessary) and resubmit their Infectious Disease plan. This is a great way to ensure that your plan is reviewed annually, is up to date with all the required components and audit your business practices against your plan “doing as you say you do”. It is also an opportunity to send another person from your company in order to grow your team's knowledge of infectious disease prevention. If you are the contact, you are welcome to attend again this year as there are updates throughout the curriculum.
The training is for essential and non essential business. Certification must be renewed annually.
