COVID-19 Lead Worker Representative Training: This Virtual Training course will inform the trainee how to carry out the role of the C-19 Lead Worker Representative in line with the Government, HSE and HSA recommendations on the management of COVID-19 including the Return to Work Safely Protocol. This is important to ensure the suppression of Covid-19 in the workplace.
The Protocol emphasises the need for coordination, collaboration and communication between employers and workers. Each have a shared responsibility to ensure safety measures are implemented and adhered to in the workplace. Each workplace is to appoint at least one ‘lead worker representative who, together with the employer’s COVID-19 Response Management Team, will be responsible for ensuring safety measures are being followed.
There should be a proportionate number of worker representatives for the number of employees. Worker representatives should be clearly identifiable and the employer should ensure they receive the necessary training to carry out the function.
