Covid and staff safety – this is about keeping yourself and others safe from Covid whilst you are working, it provides you with an overview of what Covid is and what you should be doing to keep yourself safe at work. Please do not worry if some of the information seems a little complicated, in designing the course we’ve used a mixture of the latest information available from established sources. You’ll notice that there are several podcasts included in the course modules, this is to provide you with information around topics to allow you to have a good understanding of the impact of Covid on you in your workplace.
I particularly want to mention that I have signposted several excellent resources when you look at the Covid and well-being section and also the end congratulations section please access these resources as you require them. Also being aware of what is available will allow you to pass this information on to others who may need it. You will notice most sections include a quiz, this is to ensure that you have understood the main learning points and you will not be able to complete the section until you have passed the relevant quiz. This course is based on the following; Guidance for infection prevention and control information issued jointly by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), Public Health Wales (PHW), Public Health Agency (PHA) Northern Ireland, Health Protection Scotland (HPS) and Public Health England guidance. In addition we have accessed high quality podcasts and the NHS direct website.
