COVID-19 Returning to Work Safely



This course is delivered online and is free to enrol

The Return to Work Safely Protocol recently published is the result of a collaborative effort by the Health and Safety Authority (HSA), the Health Services Executive (HSE) and the Department of Health.

This free online course will guide workers through the national protocol that is in place for returning to work safely to ensure the protection of staff, customers and other store visitors as well as reducing the potential spread of Covid-19. It will also guide both employers and workers to access vital resources for the safe return to work such as employer and employee checklists, Covid-19 response plan templates, templates for contact logging and dealing with a suspected case, as well as many others.

The course can be completed entirely online by learners in approximately 30 minutes and a Retail Ireland Certificate of Achievement is available for download upon completion. Learners are asked to submit a self-declaration as part of the course which assists with employers’ compliance requirements.

This course cannot act as a standalone induction for employees in returning to work as this must be conducted based on individual workplaces, however it does equip learners with the knowledge and understanding of what their responsibilities are in returning to work safely and what is expected of them following the Covid-19 restrictions.
