Employee Education

KNOWLEDGE EMPOWERS ! Employees are concerned - pandemics are a gamechanger and can be an existential threat to their well-being and their families. Employees will be reluctant to return to the workplace until they can understand the risk and be comfortable that proper preventative measures are in place to contain the risk. Our Access Pro Health can help by: 

  • Educating employees on the risks of a pandemic, the myths and the facts of COVID 19
  • Train employees on how to protect themselves through proper personal protection procedures - the do’s and don’ts of all safety practices
  • Support employees to adhere to infection control processes and help them manage mental health concerns that are caused or exacerbated by COVID 19
