Alberta’s front-line workers can now access safety training to help them keep businesses open and patrons safe during the pandemic.
The Restrictions Exemption Program Safety Training is available to employees of Alberta-based businesses and organizations who are implementing the REP and other COVID-19 safety requirements.
“We recognize this has been a challenging time for many Alberta workers as they continue to do their jobs to keep businesses open while also ensuring the health and safety of their colleagues and patrons,” Tyler Shandro, Minister of Labour and Immigration said. “This training will help empower workers with the skills and confidence to safely implement the Restrictions Exemption Program.”
The 45-minute online training is available to employers and staff at no cost to help them assess and manage challenging situations that may arise during their daily operations.
The training includes information and resources that workers need to keep themselves and customers safe while implementing COVID-19 safety requirements, such as requesting proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test, physical distancing or masking.
