With businesses reopening, many workers are or will be returning to the workplace for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Some workplaces have been closed or operating with minimum staff for an extended period of time. Employers should consider how to prepare their workplaces to make sure they are safe for occupancy.

This free 30-minute course provides an overview of COVID-19 control measures, how to prepare your workplace for a safe return, communication strategies, and long-term safety measures. Return to Work During COVID-19: Preparing Workers provides employers with considerations and steps to take when preparing workers for a safe return to the workplace.

Topics include:

  • Maintaining COVID-19 workplace control measures
