Lafayette, Colo. – September 29, 2020 – In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and racial injustices in the United States, KPA has updated its content with the tools and resources employers need to meet the ever-changing landscape. In addition to remote safety consulting services, the COVID-19 Safety Program, and Coronavirus Resource Center, KPA has recently strengthened Vera Suite with a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) compliance training package for employers to leverage as part of their own DEI programs.
Compliance Training that Includes Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Topics
Recent events and protests against racism are challenging business leaders to ask what they can do to address racism in the workplace and how to create a more inclusive and diverse culture. Adding or enhancing the DEI education and workforce compliance training efforts through KPA is an action that organizations can immediately take as part of their DEI programming.
Providing leaders, managers, and employees with the language and information to recognize, address, and proactively eliminate workplace discrimination can help provoke real change. KPA’s award-winning compliance training includes a DEI Training package with seven comprehensive courses:
- Bridging the Diversity Gap
- Your Role in Workplace Diversity
- Global Diversity
- Compliance Expert: Diversity – Its Value in the Workplace
- Compliance Expert: Diversity – Overcoming Barriers
- Using Communication Strategies to Bridge Cultural Divides
- Overcoming Unconscious Bias in the Workplace
COVID-19 Safety Program to Meet a Changing Regulatory Landscape
The COVID-19 Safety Program helps businesses operate safely during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The program provides tools, content, and training courses to help organizations minimize environment, health and safety (EHS) risks and meet U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration and state-specific regulations. The COVID-19 Safety Program allows customers to schedule, track, and document all activities, so there is proof of compliance. The COVID-10 Safety Program Plus provides access to KPA’s certified team of safety consultants to help tailor your program to the specific needs of your business and local regulations. Additionally, KPA offers a COVID-19 Safe Workplace Audit consulting service, where a safety expert will conduct an in-person risk mitigation audit to help you and your safety team address COVID-19 in your daily operations. The COVID-19 compliance training is also expanding to include state-specific courses for those states that have required training.
COVID-19 Resource Center
As an EHS and HR compliance software and services organization, KPA immediately responded to our customers’ need to maintain safe and productive workplaces in the face of a global pandemic. Through the Coronavirus Resource Center, KPA initially released 5 COVID-19 safety courses, 6 checklists, posters, and fact sheets, and delivered 18 recorded webinars. As a public health and safety service, the Resource Center distills the latest OSHA and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines into approachable and useful content for businesses. Navigating 2020 has required unprecedented levels of diligence from businesses.
