UCU Working Safely During the Pandemic Webinar-Wales, Tuesday 26 January 10:00

Online (Zoom)

UCU CPD Working Safely During the Pandemic interactive webinar

The full aims of the interactive webinar are to:

  1. understand why it’s important to unapologetically protect your health and wellbeing at this time
  2. identify some of the challenges you face in working safely whether from home, back in the workplace or a blend of the two
  3. Be clear about what support you can expect from your employer
  4. Identify support available from UCU

How it will work

The taught session will last for about 50-60 minutes, after which a member of UCU staff, or a branch activist, will update you on the latest UCU campaigning work in this area and will lead a discussion on what this all means for you, which should take another 15 to 20 minutes. The consensus is that the these discussions take away the isolation of lone working and begin to establish norms that are acceptable to us. The total time commitment will be less than an hour and a half.

The session will be led by experienced UCU CPD tutors.

You will need to find a quiet space, away from distractions (like telephone and email!), and you may prefer to use headphones for the session. I would also recommend that you check that you can use zoom before the session if you are unfamiliar with it.

I do need to stress that if you do say that you want to be involved I need you to treat that as a commitment as we need a full complement on the day. 

You will then be sent a meeting number and password for the webinar using zoom, along with a couple of points to think about before the webinar. You will be able to join the session from about 10 minutes before the stated start time. I would also recommend that you do join 5 to 10 minutes early as you will need to be admitted to the session, and of course there can be technical problems.

Bookings are no longer allowed on this date.
