This online course on COVID-19 in Healthcare Environments (OSHA’s Emergency Temporary Standard) discusses the requirements in the Standard, the latest in vaccine mandates, and how you can guard against infection. Although the Coronavirus surfaced in the U.S. in early 2020, it feels like we’ve been living with it forever… in our workplaces, homes and communities as well as in the media and on the internet. The Coronavirus is a serious disease, and healthcare workers are one of the groups that have the highest risk of infection. As a result, OSHA has created an “Emergency Temporary Standard” for healthcare facilities.
Areas covered in the course include the COVID-19 Plan and required precautions, physical considerations and administration, the Coronavirus, vaccination, testing and tracing, hand washing and “touch discipline”, social distancing and “respiratory etiquette”, what do if you think you are getting sick, and returning to work during the Pandemic. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood… and retained.
