Management of infectious diseases

AMPC has created this suite of videos to help meat processing plants communicate the key messages to their workforces, covering the key aspects of infectious diseases, COVID-19, how to stay safe at work, how to use face masks, and what to do if you’re not feeling well.

The videos are self-paced and if watched in sequence the videos take approximately 30 minutes to complete. It is intended that the videos can be used as a training resource for both existing and new plant staff, either in sequence or individually depending on the training requirement.

All of the videos have captions available in Portuguese, Mandarin, Taiwanese and Filipino.

I don't feel so good

Before COVID-19 was part of our lives most of us wouldn’t have thought twice about heading off to work with a bit of a cold. Now we need to stop and think whether our symptoms could be something else and the steps we should take to find out.


We’ve all worn a face mask at one point during the COVID-19 pandemic, this video looks at the dos and don’ts of wearing one.
