The EssentialSkillz Pandemic Awareness online training explains what a pandemic is, and the difference between that and a seasonal outbreak. Unlike seasonal outbreaks, which are caused by different types of influenza viruses that already exist within a population, pandemic outbreaks occur when a new virus emerges and spreads rapidly from person to person around the world, as the human body has not yet been able to build immunity. Pandemics can lead to high fatality levels. The course describes physical symptoms, explains how a virus can spread and provides advice about the actions to take to avoid infection and if medical help is required.
Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Pandemic Awareness online course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation that may be in place, all at no extra cost.
