HSA launches two Return to Work Safely courses

29 July 2020

The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) has launched two online Return to Work courses. These new courses, the Return to Work Safely Induction and Lead Worker Representative, have been developed to help give employers and employees a better understanding of the Return to Work Safely Protocol.

Return to Work Safely Induction
This course has been developed by the HSA to help you to understand the Return to Work Safely (RTWS) Protocol requirements for returning to work. One of these requirements is that workers must complete induction training. Your employer will provide additional information, advice and training on COVID-19 measures in your workplace, including an outline of their COVID-19 Response Plan, and points of contact for addressing COVID-related matters during work.

The Return to Work Safely Induction course takes approximately 20 minutes to complete, and a certificate is available on completion.

Lead Worker Representative
This short course has been developed by the HSA to help those appointed as a Lead Worker Representative. Under the Return to Work Safely Protocol at least one Lead Worker Representative must be appointed in the workplace.

The Lead Worker Representative course takes approximately 25 minutes to complete, and a certificate is available on completion.
