< Back | Last updated: Thursday 28th May 2020

Preventing the Spread of Coronavirus

ATTENDEES SHOULD NOT ATTEND A COURSE IF THEY HAVE EXPERIENCED ANY CORONAVIRUS SYMPTOMS WITHIN THE 14 DAYS PRIOR TO THE START OF THE COURSE.

ATTENDEES WILL ALSO BE ASKED TO LEAVE A COURSE IF THEY START TO EXPERIENCE ANY CORONAVIRUS SYMPTOMS WHILST ON THE COURSE.

As per the NHS UK website, the main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not 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

Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms.


Access

  • Alternative access to the workshops and training areas have been made available where possible, to limit interaction with other facilities and businesses. Details will be provided by the training provider if necessary.

Courses & Attendees

  • Maximum course numbers have been reduced to allow each attendee their own individual workstation, bike(s) and tools to work with.
  • Although optional, attendees may bring their own facemasks for use during courses.

Workshops & Training Areas

  • Workshops (including workstations, tools and bikes), training areas, kitchen & breakout areas and toilet areas will be cleaned regularly and more so than usual.
  • Floor markings at 2m apart will be put down to aid the maintaining of social distancing, including 2m of indicated spacing around each individual workstation – please respect other individuals’ workspace at all times.
  • Each workstation will have a supply of hand sanitiser for regular, individual use.
  • Each workstation will have a supply of isopropyl alcohol (i.e. spray bottles) for individual cleaning of workstations, tools and bikes, throughout the day and thoroughly at the end of each day.
  • Appropriate gloves will be supplied to attendees which will be expected to be worn for the majority of the time spent within the workshop and training areas.

Other Considerations

  • Please refer to each training provider’s own websites and further information for any training provider specific considerations, such as travel, accommodation and food & catering provisions.
