COVID-19 Training for Construction

The COVID-19 Training for Construction course has been specifically designed by VOHS Consulting Group team as a result of the highly infectious nature of the Coronavirus Disease.

Coronavirus Disease, or COVID-19, is a disease being caused by a new or novel coronavirus. As a result of its highly infectious nature, the World Health Organization has declared the spread of this coronavirus a global pandemic.

The construction industry continues to operate here in British Columbia as well as other parts of Canada and around the rest of the world. COVID-19 has caused many construction employers and workers to be concerned for their health and safety while working during a pandemic. As a result, we encourage everyone to protect themselves and others by taking this COVID-19 Training for Construction course. All workers exposed to workplace hazards require training. Therefore, this course was designed, in part, for employers to use as a tool towards due diligence and regulatory inspection preparedness.

Course Outline

COVID-19 Training for Construction course consists of a 30-minute video followed by a five (5) question multiple choice quiz. After completing the course and passing the quiz, you will be able to download a certificate of completion.
