First Aid & Covid-19 in the Workplace (Online Upskilling Course)

In light of the ongoing pandemic this 1.5-hour instructor-led course will equip first aiders with the up to date information and procedures on Covid-19 for first aiders.

This protocol provides guidance to employers to help safeguard their workers when returning to the workplace.
