Course Introduction

Covid-19 is a new strain of coronavirus, which is a group of common respiratory viruses that cause flu-like symptoms and in rare cases, it can be fatal. It first appeared in late 2019. In 2020, it has become a significant global public health emergency.

Our Coronavirus course is designed to help individuals understand how they can help prevent the spread of the virus.

Course Content

The EssentialSkillz Coronavirus course is part of our Business Protection pack and describes how individuals can help contain the spread of Covid-19. It outlines:

  • The importance of good hygiene, primarily proper hand washing, cleaning surfaces, respiratory etiquette, and social distancing
  • How to keep up to date with the latest public health and travel advice
  • When and how you should self-isolate

The course also covers some of the common misconceptions that are circulating about Covid-19. The content of the course is based on advice issued by the World Health Organization (WHO), the National Health Service (NHS), the Health Service Executive (HSE), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Like all EssentialSkillz courses, our Coronavirus course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand specific content you have developed for your organisation, all at no extra cost.

Empowering the learner

From effective workspace setups to procedural best practice, our eLearning library contains fully interactive and regularly updated courses that provide users with clear, concise and effective guidance on how to stay safe and identify risk in the workplace.

Once learners have completed their training they will be capable of performing a risk assessment of their immediate workstation. The risk assessment will guide the learner through the process, enabling your entire workforce to identify risk before they become harmful.


User self-assessment

WorkWize empowers users to play a proactive role in managing risks and hazards in their workspace.

From step-by-step training advice to visual guides and checklists, our detailed training and risk assessment modules give users everything they need to confidently manage risks in their workspace and escalate high-level issues directly to administrators.


Step-by-step resolution notifications

Communication is a key part of effective risk management. Instantly send notifications to users to keep them in the loop at every stage of the resolution process. Deploy updates across your workforce by individual, group, department, location and more.



Engaging risk assessments

WorkWize Assess is an online risk assessment platform designed to streamline the assessment and risk management process.

As an admin, you can automatically schedule periodic assessments to users at set times or after they've completed an online training course. Managers are notified of any issues and can be assigned to handle specific tasks.

Admins can also report on all aspects of risk, including risk levels, trends and overall progress. A full audit trail is kept of all risks raised, emails sent and steps that were taken to resolve the issue. 

  • Automate periodic online risk assessments across your organisation
  • Help users effectively identify and raise workplace hazards
  • Use configurable and in-depth reporting to identify, prioritise and assign risk for resolution
  • Intuitive usability makes resolving hundreds of organisation risks possible in just a few clicks
  • Maintain a full audit trail for risks and the steps taken to resolve them


Effective risk management options

WorkWize allows admins to cut down on costs to time and resources by empowering users to resolve lower-level risks themselves. Medium and high-level risks can then be escalated for the immediate attention of administrators for appropriate action.

Our user-friendly dashboard lets admins prioritise concerns and identify risks by source allowing them to solve potentially hundreds of reports in just a few clicks. Specific admins can be assigned to oversee the process from start to finish and send notifications that keep users informed every step of the way.

Recall any records for your archive to assess your compliance performance.
