About the Program:
As the country is moving towards a new normal amidst COVID-19 pandemic, there is a need of specific standards/protocols for the business organizations, institutions etc. to ensure that they are able to operate safely.
The new normal will require following imperative priorities for the organizations/institutions:
- – Ensuring safe operations and workplace for safeguarding health and safety of employees, customers and public
- – Complying with all new COVID-19 related requirements from regulatory/health authorities and/or other Government bodies
- – Ensuring business continuity in operations to serve customers and protect businesses
To help the organizations and institutions address these imperatives and for the benefit of citizens, QCI, along with industry stakeholders, has developed a harmonized standard “Workplace Assessment for Safety and Hygiene” (WASH)” to help the organizations assess their preparedness to restart and run their operations safely.
This training program is to assist organizations (Manufacturing, Service, Trade, etc.) and individuals learn the key elements that they need to understand and implement at their workplace in accordance with the WASH standard to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 and ensure safe operations.
