CONDITIONS OF ENTRY to Wrightway Road Training Premises. Visitors MUST adhere to the following Guidelines
These Guidelines concern Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19)
Coronavirus is a human condition that can make people very ill. Illness symptoms may appear flu like and can in many cases develop to fatal results due it being a serious disease. It is thought coronavirus originated in China and human to human transmission occurs through human contact and contaminated surfaces.
Our Organisation is committed to preventing the spread of this virus and we insist all visitors to our premises must demonstrate practical and proportionate steps to prevent transmission of this sickening disease to other people.
Staff in our Organisation are trained to do the following:
promote regular and thorough hand-washing;
use provided alcohol-based hand rub dispensers in our workplace including student access locations;
frequently wash their hands with soap and water;
place litter in rubbish bins for paper towels and tissues; and
use cleaning and disinfectant products to clean our facilities, work stations and equipment.
Note: Personal hygiene is extremely important in preventing human transmission of this virus. This means thorough hand washing in required before use of the toilet and after use of the toilet. After touching work surfaces hand washing is required. Try to avoid hands touching areas of the face near eyes, ears, nose and mouth. Contaminants such as fluids containing the virus enter a person through body contact.
Separation space to other people is important and our visitors are requested to maintain more space to others than was previously the case before the virus was known to exist.
Visitors to our organisation are asked to:
wash their hands with soap and running water regularly when hands are visibly dirty, before and after going to the toilet, before and after eating, prior to food preparation or touching pens or other virus transmission sources;
use alcohol-based hand rub regularly, particularly after coming into physical contact with others;
cough and sneeze with a tissue or bent elbow, immediately dispose of used tissues and use alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water immediately afterwards;
avoid touching eyes, ears, nose and mouth;
if unwell, avoid contact with others and seek medical advice immediately; and
make sure pens, documents and items such as door handles are clean and hygienic after contact.
Reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 will help us to get through this public health issue without contracting the disease.
Symptoms of Coronavirus are fever, coughing, sore throat and/or tiredness. These symptoms are common to having a cold or other respiratory illness. Seek medical advise if symptoms persist.
When symptoms are experienced you must do the following:
avoid close contact with other people, no handshaking or standing directly in front of them;
respectfully ask that they stand or maintain a satisfactory distance from you;
avoid sharing hand held items such as pens, try to use your own personal pen;
indicate any sanitation items they may use (tissues, alcohol hand sanitisers) and where to dispose of the sanitation item; and
frequently wash hands and use sanitisers/cleaning products where needed.
Should you still be concerned, refer to the Wrightway Road Training personnel on site.
