In May 2020, Mintra released two new online courses for employees and managers with the latest international guidance on how to safely return to the workplace during and after the COVID-19 global pandemic.
As restrictions ease, companies need to safely accommodate any staff positions that are required to operate from their facilities. Our COVID-19 Returning to Work Courses are designed to help managers and their employees with effective decision making on hygiene control and physical distancing techniques.
Each course is 20 minutes in duration and includes an assessment to test the learner’s knowledge and understanding. They are multi-device (HTML5), meaning that they can be completed on your choice of technology, smartphone, PC or tablet.
The Employee version of the course explains how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace, what actions to take if you start to show symptoms and how to protect yourself physically and mentally.
The Managers course covers the precautionary measures that can be used to prevent the spread of infection, how to effectively communicate these, helping personnel return to the work and managing sickness.
These courses provide a practical combination of general awareness and the best practice guidelines recommended by the WHO (World Health Organisation). Many of the precautions implemented now will remain for the foreseeable future and be an ongoing requirement for company policies and procedures.
‘There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about COVID-19, but these courses deliver practical guidance and address a real need that we are seeing both from our customers and our own staff. They give reassurance that, by adhering to the guidelines, we are all capable of returning to work safely.’
