Employers are allowed to continue to book face to face classroom based workplace Education & Training for compliance needs. Such training includes First aid at work, Emergency first aid at work and Paediatric first aid.

Reading this guidance for employers will also be beneficial to workers and the self-employed.

It gives an overview of the things we have done to help make your work and workplace COVID-secure by performing the following:

  • Carrying out Risk assessments
  • Maintaining Social distancing
  • Increasing our Cleaning, hygiene and handwashing
  • Sharing this information with our staff and provide information
  • Working from home when we can
  • Supporting Vulnerable workers

Risk assessment

We have reviewed our centres risk analysis to manage the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19) to our business and acted on these findings.

Social distancing

Where possible we expect people to remain – two (2) metres apart. If this is not viable, keeping 1 metre apart with risk mitigation is acceptable. We require people to wear face coverings when in communal areas at all times. Signage is provided in all areas on what our site rules are.

Cleaning, hygiene and handwashing

Keeping our workplace clean and with frequent handwashing reduces the potential for coronavirus to spread. It is a critical part of making and our business COVID-secure.

Talk to workers and provide information

We have consulted and involved our people in the steps we’re taking to manage the risk of coronavirus in our workplace so you can:

  • explain the changes you’re planning to work safely
  • make sure changes will work and hear their ideas
  • continue to operate your business safely

We expect our clients we work with to meet the standards that we are following here. This is communicated at time of booking to ensure all remain COVIS secure.

Working from home

Our people are working from home when we should:

  • we provide them with the equipment they need, including computers, phones and videoconferencing facilities
  • remaining in regular contact with them, making sure we discuss their wellbeing

Vulnerable workers

We have considered the risk to workers who are particularly vulnerable to coronavirus and put controls in place to reduce that risk. We expect our clients to do the same and ask this question at time of booking.

Summary

We all have a part to play in remaining COVID secure. We and we expect you to know and follow the rules on personal health and wellbeing at all times along with acting responsibly.
