What are the hazards

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
An infectious virus caused by a newly discovered Coronavirus that is spread primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes that may initially cause fever, cough or chest tightness, myalgia, fatigue and dyspnoea as symptoms in people

Who might be harmed and how

Who: Employees, delegates, visitors, contractors and anyone else who might physically come into contact with a carrier[1] in our premises or training room


Vulnerable people including the elderly, new and expectant mothers, people with existing underlying health conditions especially respiratory ones.

How: People can catch COVID-19 directly from a carrier’s saliva, cough or exhaled droplets both in air that they inhale, swallow or from touching surfaces with the infected droplet and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth.

COVID -19 risk

COVID-19 Symptoms

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back no need to measure your temperature
  • new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

 

If a person becomes unwell with a new continuous cough or fever like symptoms in the training room, then they will be sent home and directed to the stay at home guidance.

 

The company representative will maintain regular contact with the patient during this time to check on their wellbeing and mental health.

Existing control measures

 

 

Social Distancing
Ensuring a 2 metres gap is kept between people within the premises as recommended by the Public Health England and UK Government.

Hand Washing

Hand washing facilities is provided for employees and visitors to use which include soap and fresh water.

  • Handwashing posters are displayed at every cleaning station on how to effectively wash and dry hands.
  • Disposable paper towels are provided to dry hands and a bin to discard it into after use.
  • Alcohol based hand sanitisers are provided and placed in strategic places all over the training room to be used and to act as a bridge between frequent washing of hands with soap and water.

Cleaning
Ensure adequate cleaning is carried out on objects and surfaces at regular intervals using disinfectant. Attention to be drawn to high activity areas such as door handles, office equipment and tools.

Facemasks

The public health England has issued guidance for the use of PPE in health care settings. All other settings people are asked to follow the social distancing rules and practice good hygiene methods.

  • Wearers must be clean shaven and have tight seal around the mask
  • Tight-fitting respirators (FFP3) require a good seal on the wearer’s face.

 

Further Actions

A regular review of the training facility, its course scheduling, layout and controls measures to promote healthy and a safe learning environment will be implemented, maintained and monitored twice a week or every time there is a government update.

Small singular chair and desk is used in the training rooms. Each workspace is set up to ensure Social distancing with at least 2 meters gap from the next delegate in the same room.

Hand sanitisers and sanitising stations are installed at every training room and strategic areas all over the premises.

Course dates are scheduled to only have one course running per day, but this is subject to change

Under no circumstances will there be more than two courses running simultaneously. In such rare situation, the courses will have a staggered start time of 30 minutes, meaning the break and finish times will also be staggered to ensure social distancing.

Delegates on the later start time will not be allowed into the building until their schedule start time, this will help reduce the spread of the virus by preventing people from congregating together in the same space other than the classroom.

All delegates on the same course will be admitted and dismissed at the same time irrespective of if they finish earlier than their course mate.

There will be a mandatory briefing reminding delegates of the importance of adhering to handwashing for 20 seconds with soap, sanitising their hands regularly especially if they have left the room and returned and maintaining the 2-metre distance. Everyone including the staff are reminded to follow the ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it’ guidance

The Bradley group staff will carry out routine cleaning prior to the class starting every day and a disinfecting regime where all surfaces and handles are clean and disinfected following every break (3 times a day) every day.

We advise that delegates attending courses should have their facemask and put it on at all times to help protect other people in close proximity.

Beverages and food will not be consumed anywhere on the premises, instead delegates will be encouraged to have their beverages and food at the Japanese garden where social distancing in opens space can be maintained.

All windows and doors on the premises especially in the training rooms will be opened daily (doors safely secured so they can’t slam shut in the wind) to provide good general ventilation in the training rooms

Any delegate displaying behaviour that is deemed not safe by the tutor or any member of staff SHALL be sent away or even removed by security and course fees already paid will NOT be refunded.

Course Lead and tutors will ensure that prior to readmitting delegates into the training room cleaning and disinfecting all surfaces have taken place.
