The outbreak of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) presents new challenges in the workplace as employers strive to support the health and well-being of their workforce and keep businesses running.
The impact of COVID-19 on the way we live, learn and work is evolving daily. Mitigating the risks of the virus will help decrease the rate of infection at the workplace and in the community and will help keep employees and their families safe and will also help ensure business continuity.
We’re want to help, so the following courses are offered at no-cost until April 30th, 2020.
