Nebraska Safety Council Partnering to Offer COVID Preparedness Certification Program
The Nebraska Safety Council is partnering with the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce to offer a COVID Preparedness training and certification program to recognize organizations that are actively putting appropriate safety protocols in place. The training is required to get certified, and businesses that meet certification requirements will send a clear message to employees, clients, and the public that they are doing everything possible to keep people safe.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused businesses to change their operations to fit the safety needs of the associated threat, and OSHA is holding the Nebraska Safety Council accountable for its responsibilities in preparing businesses to meet those needs and recognize those businesses that are already doing a fantastic job. The four-hour course will include training about preparation and emergency-operations planning for a pandemic; job safety and hazard analyses; policy, procedure, and continuing improvement; blood-borne and airborne pathogens; PPE selection and training; respiratory protection; decontamination; reporting procedures for OSHA, CDC, EPA, and local health department; and award-certification application requirements.
