On the 9th May 2020 the Government launched the Return to Work Protocal, as part of it’s plans for reopening the economy
Within the protocol it states:
“In the event that first aid is required in the workplace it may not be possible to maintain a distance of 2 metres. Workers with a specific role in acting as first responders should be provided with updated training on infection prevention and control principles including performance of hand hygiene and appropriate use of personal protective equipment when delivering first aid.”
It is paramount that all industries operating during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic ensure they are protecting and informing their workforce and minimising the risk of spread of infection. This Virtual Training course will inform the trainee how to carry out the role of the Lead Worker Representative in line with the Government, HSE and HSA recommendations on the management of COVID-19 including the Return to Work Safety Protocal
The Protocol emphasises the need for coordination, collaboration and communication between employers and workers. Each have a shared responsibility to ensure safety measures are implemented and adhered to in the workplace.
Each workplace is to appoint at least one ‘lead worker representative’who, together with the employer’s COVID-19 Response Management Team, will be responsible for ensuring safety measures are being followed. There should be a proportionate number of worker representatives for the number of employees. Worker representativesshould be clearly identifiable,and the employer should ensure they receive the necessary training to carry out the function.
In response to client demand we have developed some training options in relation to this topic for those working in the construction industry.
