About Sickness Absence Awareness Training

Nearly every person has experienced sickness absence from work at some point, whether it be from illness, food poisoning or another issue. While every employee should take sickness absence when such issues arise, it’s important that these situations are handled appropriately.

This includes not abusing sickness absence, communicating correctly about it and managing the return to work in a way that minimises disruption. This online course ensures employees are aware of these duties to ensure a healthier and more productive workforce.

Why Is Sickness Absence Awareness Training Important?

It is estimated that sickness absence costs UK employers £77.5 billion per year. In order to protect themselves from the costs and any problems of sickness absence, organisations must have a clear policy regarding sickness absence in place. They must also ensure all employees understand this policy and abide by it.
