In the light of the changes to
restrictions in England and Scotland on 19th July, Northern Ireland on 26th July, and Wales on 7th August, we are no longer
enforcing our Covid-19 risk assessment, unless you wish us to.
We recommend that
employers’ consider the following points in relation to the ongoing pandemic and have control measures still in place:
- 1. Minimise face-to-face contact (time when
social distancing cannot be maintained)
- 2. Requirement to wear face coverings for
practical Positive Handling and Physical intervention skills training, and First Aid training
- 3. For trainer/delegate demonstrations,
facemasks must be worn by all involved.
In line with HSE
guidance, organisations should also have:
- 1. Adequate
- 2. Good hygiene
- 3. Sufficient
- 4. A training room large enough to accommodate
the course to be delivered to the number of delegates attending, without compromising the safety and welfare of any delegate attending. Physical skills courses require a minimum of
2m2 for each person in the room
Safety is our paramount concern for both your staff and our trainers.
