Updated COVID-19 modules released for those required to be on campus

Brock’s Health, Safety and Wellness (HSW) has updated the modules focused on the COVID-19 pandemic to help the University community remain safe and informed while on campus.

Available for all staff, faculty and students, HSW has been consistently updating their COVID-19 information to keep in line with best practices and Niagara Region Public Health recommendations.

“Brock is ensuring that for those faculty, staff and students who are required to be onsite, they are kept informed with the most up to date information of what they can expect on campus,” said Leigh Harold, Director, HSW. “The modules are just one way in which Brock is providing the University community with information about strategies to stay safe.”

The ‘COVID-19 Safety Considerations on Campus’ module is available to all Brock employees and students who are required and approved to be on campus.

The employee module focuses on an overview of the virus, information on risk assessments of the workplace and reasonable control measures for the COVID-19 health risk, details on physical distancing, hygiene and face coverings, as well as information on Brock’s available health and safety resources.

The student module details general information about COVID-19, focuses on Brock’s COVID-19 screening tool, outlines Brock’s safety regulations, highlights health and safety resources relevant to students, and provides specific information related to Student Health Services.

The ‘COVID-19 Safety Considerations for Laboratory Spaces’ module is intended for students and employees required and approved to be working in Brock’s laboratories. This module focuses on lab-specific safety measures and protocols such as common-use equipment rooms, personal protective equipment and the proper cleaning and disinfectant procedures.

These modules can be found on the employee Sakai site and student Sakai site. For more information on how to access them, follow HSW’s step-by-step instruction guide.
