CORONAVIRUS / COVID-19 / INFECTION CONTROL SUMMARY

Keeping you safe during your training.

Although most UK government restrictions have been relaxed or withdrawn, we are still employing the following infection control measures during our training.
We still feel it is important to provide a safe environment for all learners and our staff. 

During our training sessions, we are still maintaining the following actions and procedures:

Low Risk

Low risk is considered to be when no specific risk of infection has been identified and no specific restrictions are being imposed by any UK government department or agency.

We will ask any learners that feel unwell, or show signs of (any) infections, to not attend the training sessions. We will work with you to ensure you still receive your required training as soon as possible.
We will still be asking all learners to wash / sanitise their hands on entry to the training room, and at regular intervals throughout the day.
We will endeavour to provide each learner with their own manikin to use during the training. Where this is not possible, 1 manikin will be used between 2 learners, but with a change of face and lungs available for the second learner. We will also provide a CPR faceshield.

Higher Risk

Higher Risk is considered when there is a specific identification of infection risk within the training environment, or specific guidelines or restrictions are imposed by any UK government department or agency.

We will ask all learners to wear a face covering (unless exempt etc.) when attending one of our training sessions. Our trainers and staff will do the same. If the room ventilation is well above acceptable, and social distancing can be maintained, then face coverings can be removed when all learners are seated.
We will maintain a high a level of ventilation within the training environment. This may mean that windows are open, so learners may want to bring an extra jumper.
We will ask all learners and staff to maintain social distancing, ideally at a distance of 2m in all directions. If 2m is not possible, then 1m with face coverings worn will be used.
We will still be asking all learners to wash / sanitise their hands on entry to the training room, and at regular intervals throughout the day.
We will still be providing 1 manikin to each learners for CPR and resuscitation skills, along with a CPR faceshield.

If we are coming to your premises to deliver training then we are happy for your staff to follow whatever guidelines they would normally follow in their workplace. However we still need to consider the health and safety of our training team, so may still ask for some of the above procedures to be implements.
