Reducing the Transmission of COVID-19 – Providing Safe, Socially Distanced Training

 

Safe Hands are actively monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and have measures in place to ensure we continue to serve our customers in a way that is safe for both customers and our employees. We are committed to serving the needs of our customers while also having the privilege and responsibility of providing an essential service that our communities rely on.

To help minimize impact to service, we will continue to refer to guidelines and protocol provided by UK & Irish Governments, local health officials and the Resuscitation Council UK, in the areas we serve.

During training:

  • Safe Hands will risk assess our training delivery and mitigate all risks of possible spread of COVID-19. 

  • Safe Hands will design lessons to ensure that a distance of 1m is maintained between learners and between the learners and trainers unless close contact is absolutely necessary for teaching or assessment purposes. Sensible adaptions to training and assessment activities will be introduced to achieve this. 

  • Safe Hands will ensure appropriate handwashing facilities and / or alcohol hand sanitisers are available for use before, during and after training sessions. 

  • Where close contact is absolutely necessary and it is teaching and assessment related to a situation where PPE would be expected to be worn, PPE will be provided. 

  • Safe Hands will have in place processes for preventing those with possible COVID-19 symptoms (fever, a new cough or loss of smell/taste) from entering the classroom. We will also have in place a process to manage instances of people who develop symptoms during the delivery of any training. 

  • All equipment that is used by learners will be thoroughly cleaned before use by an individual learner.
