Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Prevention Standards Organization?

We are an organization of medical professionals and educators who have come together to develop and provide educational materials and tools about disease prevention in the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic. While we may not represent all the at-risk industries, many of us are frontline workers and have seen how the virus has affected our lives and dramatically impacted others. Providing the knowledge and resources to increase education and authenticate employee compliance is our way of assisting others to navigate their professional lives with and after the pandemic.

What does Prevention Standards do?

We provide a framework of disease prevention education informed by medical professionals, public health agencies, colleges and associations. We authenticate educational compliance for employers, and provide individuals a way to showcase their learnings.

Where do you provide your services?

Prevention Standards is available globally. Our courses are currently only available in English and focus on North American at-risk sectors. 

If you are interested in adapting our framework into different languages or regions, please contact us.

What does it mean to have a certificate from Prevention Standards?

Being awarded a certificate from Prevention Standards indicates that the individual has undergone our disease prevention compliance education and passed the corresponding online exam. Their certificate may be shared or displayed as proof of completion of the course, providing confidence to those they work with and those they service. The certificate does not in any way represent or warrant that the holder has been certified in COVID-19 protocols, rather it demonstrates that the individual understands the risks of working during and after the global pandemic. Individuals must check to ensure whether they are required to follow specific protocols depending on any varying geographical, political, industrial and commercial requirements enacted as a result of COVID-19.

What is a workplace certificate?

A workplace certificate is attained when all employees of an organization have obtained their individual certificates. As a printable certificate that’s easily displayed, it’s an excellent way to demonstrate commitment to the health and safety of those you employ and service. Employers can request a certificate, or inquire about group options, here.
