Covid SafeCorps Infection Control and Universal Precautions Acknowledgement
By volunteering in a setting which caters to life-threatening illnesses, you may be at risk of exposure to infections.Please use the following guidelines while volunteering for us:
" Hand washing is the single most effective method of controlling infections. Wash your hands before, during, and after your shift.
" Always wear disposable gloves and a mask. Change them per shift.
" If you touch an item or surface soiled with blood or bodily fluids, wash your hands immediately with soap and water. Then report the instance immediately to a staff person.
" Always report any potential hazard or possible hazardous incident to a staff person immediately.
Please keep in mind that this initiative is being run by volunteers. We do not have the funds or the capacity to run full background checks on each volunteer/person needing help. Each person is run through a quick screening to check for inaccurate information. Information like a criminal or sex offense may show up at this point.
When something looks off we will require additional information from the participant. At this point, they will be fully screened including our unique photo ID verification, in which the person holds a unique one-time code with their government-issued ID in the same photo. Their information will also be sent off to a third party for deep review. This normally takes 48-72 hours. In rare cases we may require the participant to pay for the background check if they would like to volunteer on our platform.
By completing the signup form to be matched or to be a volunteer you agree that you accept all risk and responsibility and further hold any facilitator/volunteer/staff, etc associated with CovidSafeCorps.com (INC) harmless of any wrong doing.
