The Right COVID-19 Training is as Essential as PPE for Your Company
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on companies across the United States and worldwide. The right training for your employees can be just as important as personal protective equipment (PPE) like masks and face shields. COVID-19 employee training will help your staff members to protect themselves against the coronavirus more effectively by teaching them these important lessons:
- How the coronavirus is spread
- Who is vulnerable to COVID-19
- How to implement social distancing effectively both indoors and outdoors
- The importance of masks and other COVID-19 protective measures
- How to wash and sanitize hands properly
- The ways in which COVID-19 can be spread
- Separating fact from fiction about COVID-19
Many companies have not yet implemented COVID-19 training for their staff members. This could put their employees at risk of contracting the novel coronavirus or spreading it to others. Investing in a training program specifically designed to provide your staff with the necessary information to protect themselves and others from the coronavirus will pay off in improved health and safety for your employees, customers and others who visit your workplace. COVID-Trained offers practical training solutions that can reduce the transmission of COVID-19 infection in your workplace.
A Real Threat to Public Health
COVID-19 has claimed the lives of nearly a million people worldwide and hundreds of thousands of individuals in the United States. This threat is not likely to go away anytime soon. While progress is being made toward a vaccine, it is not certain if or when this will occur. Medical researchers are still determining whether those who have recovered from COVID-19 have temporary or permanent immunity to this serious disease. For now, prevention is the best and most practical way to protect yourself, your staff members and your family and friends from contracting the COVID-19 disease.
Many staff members, however, may not know the basics of COVID-19 protective measures. This can leave them vulnerable not only to contracting the coronavirus but also to spreading it to others in your workspaces, in their own families and in public places. Providing these employees with targeted training that explains the risks of COVID-19 and that delivers practical advice on how to wear a mask, how to social distance at work and how to sanitize hands and surfaces to create the safest possible workplace.
Education Is the Key to Protection
Employers are responsible for the safety of their employees in the workplace. Providing your staff members with practical guidance and education on COVID-19 can provide them with a healthier and safer working environment while reducing the potential for legal actions against the company.
Implementing a COVID-19 employee training program is one of the best ways to protect your company and your staff members against the serious effects of this deadly virus. Educating your employees will give them the tools and the information necessary to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and will help them to separate fact from fiction in formulating their plans to protect themselves from the spread of the disease.
