Occupational Health Tips for Employees as COVID-19 Restrictions Ease

Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to broad changes in how we live and work. While some federal employees have continued to deliver critical services at work sites, most people are working remotely. As public health restrictions ease and the government contemplates a gradual return to the workplace, now is the time to hear important information about how to adapt our work environment to keep everyone safe and healthy.  

On behalf of Health Canada's Public Service Occupational Health Program, the Canada School of Public Service is pleased to present this session on the Occupational Health Tool Kit: Preventing the Spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Workplaces in the Government of Canada's Core Public Administration. You will learn about the personal preventive measures you can take, the increased cleaning in buildings and use of physical barriers, and recommendations regarding personal protective equipment. This webcast will offer practical guidance that can be adapted to a range of circumstances across the public service.

To prepare for the session, we encourage you to review the tip sheets available in the tool kit.

This event is part of the Easing of COVID-19 Restrictions in the Workplace Series.
