About this course

In 2019, a novel coronavirus was identified, COVID-19. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause illness from the common cold to more serious disease like Sever Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

COVID-19 is an infectious disease that can be passed from person to person through droplets produced when an infected person speaks, coughs or sneezes.

Infectious diseases, like COVID-19, are preventable. Infection control in the workplace aims to prevent pathogens from coming into contact with any person in the first place.

Safetrac’s ‘Infectious Disease Awareness’ courses are broken into two versions – an Employee version to assist staff in understanding the COVID-19 outbreak, what they can do to reduce the risk of infection, and a Manager version to assist with knowing what signs to be aware of, and what they can do to protect their health along with the health of their staff.
