Why Complete this Course?
Now more than ever it is important for everyone to understand how infectious agents can be transmitted and how to protect ourselves and others from transmission. Under commonwealth workplace health and safety legislation employees have a duty to:
- take reasonable care of their own health and safety in the workplace;
- take reasonable care of the health and safety of others in the workplace; and
- cooperate with their employer about any action they take to comply with workplace health and safety.
Employers have a primary duty of care to staff, including visitors, and are responsible for health and safety in the workplace.
This course will help you to understand how to keep safe and prevent and control the spread of infectious disease. The course provides the skills and knowledge to implement standard precautions to prevent and control infection in the transport and logistics workplace and focuses on the importance of following workplace policies and procedures to protect yourself, co-workers, customers, and the community against the transmission of infectious disease.
