What is it?
Be Covid Smart is an immersive online training programme that teaches you how to safely learn and work in construction during Covid-19. It is a free, fun and easy-to-use quiz-based toolkit that can be accessed via mobile, tablet, or laptop.
Be Covid Smart takes you through 360-degree virtual scenarios to learn safe practice in your daily work and learning situations. It aims to give you and your colleagues confidence to set boundaries, be safe and protect yourself and others from Covid-19.
Who is it for?
This is for anyone learning and working in construction who wants to make sure they are going about their work or learning as safely as possible. It is for people who are:
- working on site
- learning at colleges or universities
- carrying out domestic work
- travelling during restrictions
This training gives the knowledge and confidence to make the right decisions when a situation is unclear or intimidating.
Colleges or businesses can use the training programme so their employees, apprentices and students can act confidently and safely. It also gives customers and the public confidence that construction workers have high Covid-19 safety standards.
How does it work?
Choose from 5 scenarios that best suit your situation: construction site, college, domestic dwelling, shared accommodation or transport.
Then make your way through situations you’d find yourself in throughout your entire day, reading signposts, answering questions and making decisions on what the safest action to take is. As you successfully answer questions on each scenario you move on until you’ve completed the full module. Each module takes around 30-40 minutes.
