Health Screening Training Overview

Introduction

Businesses across South Africa are slowly opening their doors and operating again. With the global coronavirus pandemic, better known as COVID-19 still a serious threat in South Africa, various health and safety measures have become mandatory to protect employees and members of the public from exposure and infection. These health and safety measures include mandatory health screenings for businesses to detect potential high-risk candidates and proactively mitigate the potential of COVID-19 exposure.

From COVID-19 being declared a national disaster in South Africa to entering a lockdown, a need was identified for essential workers and businesses operating under lockdown and beyond to increase their knowledge on the prevention and management of Covid-19 risk. Therefore EQiGate, in partnership with the South African First Aid League, Pre-Hospital Emergency Care and Bo Fire Academy of Learning have fast-tracked the development of multiple short online training courses, multiple exposure prevention and management tools applicable to all businesses and industries to enable businesses to operate safely, including the management of positive cases to help people recover in the comfort of their own homes and lessen the burden and risks of COVID-19 management in hospitals and clinics.
