Free COVID-19 safety planning course for employers

On Thursday, March 3, the Labor Occupational Health Program of University of California, Berkley, will host a free, online training course for employers of grocers, restaurants, retail businesses, construction and other business sectors “on implementing your COVID-19 prevention plan.”

The event will take place via Zoom between 1 and 4 p.m. and is specifically designed for managers and supervisors across industries “where employees commonly come into contact with the public which puts them at higher risk for COVID exposure,” a flyer read.

“This interactive course will be conducted via Zoom and will focus on the protections necessary for protecting employees from COVID-19 that are required by OSHA and Cal/OSHA. You will walk away from this class with the tools necessary for creating, or improving, your COVID-19 plan for protecting your employees.”

Other topics include how to develop a COVID-19 plan, current employee rights under the COVID-19 standard and other laws and reporting requirements of cases.

Attendees will receive a template for taking notes during the seminar, free resource materials and a certificate of course completion. The class will be led primarily by Robin Dewey, MPH from UC Berkeley Labor Occupational Health Program, with occasional insight from other college faculty.
