Security Covid-19 back to work training
The Security Institute, the UK’s largest non-profit membership organisation for security professionals, has launched two new online COVID-19 Back to Work training courses. The ‘Standard Operating Procedure for returning to work COVID-19: Induction Course’ and ‘COVID-19 Compliance Officer’ courses have been created to help organisations train their staff according to the public health requirements, addressing the current COVID-19 associated risks.
As lockdown measures start to be eased across the country, on site work can now recommence for many organisations. Navigating the work environment post-lockdown presents an array of new challenges for organisations to consider in order to ensure the safety of their employees, customers and the wider general public.
There have already been several instances of COVID-19 outbreaks that have been traced back to a specific workplace reported in the national news, take Dura Beds in Bately as a recent example. Organisations have a duty of care to their employees, customers and the wider community to ensure that any return to the workplace is conducted safely, and strictly follows the current government guidelines.
These new courses from the Security Institute help ensure that organisations and their teams are ready to safely return to work. The courses clearly outline the procedures to follow during the recommencement of work, which will help maintain a sanitary workplace as well as improve employee confidence as we collectively face these new unprecedented changes.
The ‘COVID-19 Compliance Officer’ specifically focuses on workplace management best practices, detailing the essential considerations and processes that need to be implemented, to ensure that your site is employee-friendly and prepared to combat the spread of infection.
In addition to expanding on the now-familiar 2-metre social distancing measures, the courses also provide guidance for other imperative workplace considerations to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading on your site; this includes how First Aid can be safely administered to prevent any cross-contamination, and how to correctly address suspected and/or confirmed cases of COVID-19 within your organisation.
The Security Institute is currently offering a discounted bundle package on these two courses, which can be purchased by individuals or in bulk for employers. To sign up please visit: https://thesecurityinstitute.hiuphub.com/purchase/bundle
Completing these courses will also earn you double formal CPD points in the Security Institute’s CPD Scheme, helping you continue your professional development and gain a competitive edge over other practitioners.
