Workplace Safety and Hygiene

Offered Byپیشکش

About this Course

Every year, 430 million people get affected by work-related injuries or illnesses. In Pakistan, specifically, people working behind desks make up for 4% of the whole country’s work-related injuries. In fact, it is quite common to see people under-equipped or rash when it comes to looking after themselves. Colleagues might have the flu and choose not to wear a mask; janitorial workers may use harsh cleaning solutions without wearing gloves; gardners are often perched on the top of tall ladders without any safety equipment!

In this training, we hope to correct all of that. Whether it’s illnesses, injuries, hazards, or emergencies — we’ve got you covered! You’ll learn how to work in a manner so as to avoid getting hurt; figure out routines to stay sanitized; and be more understanding of the need for emergency drills. After taking this training, our hope is that you’ll be able to care for often-overlooked aspects of your health, and feel a lot better over the course of your work life!
