As we are now moving through the different Phases of removing lockdown restrictions everyone is beginning to “move forward” and accept that our lives will have to adapt in order for us all to stay safe and reduce the risk of spreading infection from COVID-19.
Over the recent months of “lockdown”, Tillycroy Services have been working hard on new working practices, in order to comply with government guidelines and health and safety regulations. This includes updating procedures and policies and our risk assessments as if we do not adhere to these then the businesses and client’s we work with run the risk of staff becoming ill with COVID-19, along with the spread of it within the workplace and community.
Our risk assessments have all been reviewed in order that additional risks are identified, and we now have Pre-course Screening Documents which will be emailed to clients in advance to ensure that all safety measures are being met.
We have reduced the numbers of attendees on all of our classroom courses, to ensure that social distancing is kept at 2 meters. As part of the course introduction delegates will be briefed on all enhanced hygiene measures including the importance and expectation of washing hands thoroughly at the right time throughout the day and the use of hand sanitizing gels which will be available in the room.
The courses that we have had to make the most changes on are our First Aid courses. Again to ensure that all delegates and staff remain safe the social distancing rule of 2 meters will be in place with each delegate having their own mannikin and fake limb for practicing wound dressing skills. Each individual will also be issued on arrival with a personal delegate pack which will include, a face covering, gloves, CPR Face-shield, dressings for practice and paperwork which will be required to be completed.
In addition to adhere to government guidance on track and trace learners will be asked prior to the commencement of the course for personal contact details to allow for notification if someone on the course should develop symptoms within 2 weeks of attending the training.
Tillycroy Services acknowledge that returning to the training room will be a daunting prospect but we hope that with all the new safety measures in place that everyone will have the confidence to take part in training. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the classroom.
