21 Academy is pleased to announce that it has partnered with 21 Law, Advisory 21 and Prohealth and has designed a short online course for those who want to have their workplace as in-line as possible with the expected standards of hygiene and procedures to prevent COVID-19 from reaching the workplace. The course will also focus on the legal implications such preventive measures might have and how to go about them.
This two-session course is of particular interest to those persons appointed to be responsible for the implementation and observance of policies and procedures on COVID-19 infection prevention at the workplace, Directors, CEOs, HR Professionals, Health & Safety Officers, and Logistics Officers.
The main learning objectives include the following:
- Acquiring a broad understating of existing infection preventive measures
- Understanding the needs of a Workplace Risk Assessment
- Carrying out the Risk Assessment
- Reviewing existing policies and procedures to adapt them to the new normal
- Drafting of new policies and procedures emanating from the Risk Assessment
- Understanding the implications of the preventive measures on employment and data privacy legislation
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- create a “visibly” safer environment at the workplace for clients and employees alike
- draft and implement scientific, evidence-based Standard Operating procedures (SOPs) specific to the COVID 19 emergency. These SOPs are essential, both to ensure that safety standards are maintained by all throughout your organisation, as well as to strengthen your case in the unfortunate eventuality of liability claims made by clients or employees.
- avoid the introduction of policies and procedures which conflict with existing employment and privacy legislation
A certificate of attendance will be issued to all those attending both sessions.
