COVID-19 is part of the coronavirus family which causes respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more serious diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS).
It is believed COVID-19 is spread through people. Namely through close contact with an infected person, contact with droplets from an infected person's cough or sneeze, or touching objects or surfaces that have droplets from an infected person and then touching your mouth and face.
The Occupational COVID-19 Training Scheme provides an online training program for employers and employees. The program has been designed specifically to help organisations ensure their staff are trained in safe working practices to help limit the spread of infectious diseases, such as the coronavirus.
Designed by health professionals and industry experts, the training provides up-to-date, accurate and assessable information. Participants of the Occupational COVID-19 Training Scheme receive a certification of workplace readiness which verifies their understanding of the Occupational COVID-19 Workplace Training Scheme principles.
The course has been developed to provide a core education package suitable for most types of businesses, however for some sectors the course may require additional modules. Please see our statement for more information.
As well as providing general information for employers and employees, we are working with a range of industry associations to promote safe workplace practices and to deliver extension activities in workplaces across Australia.
Contact your industry association to see if they are a part of the Occupational COVID-19 Workplace Training Scheme.Principle Partner
