  • when and how to conduct risk assessments, including information on what is ‘reasonably practicable’
  • how to calculate and adhere to physical distancing rules such as the 4 square metre rule and what to do if these cannot be strictly followed
  • how to clean and disinfect the workplace and when to do so
  • what causes psychological injury and tips on how to manage mental health in the workplace and from home.
