Coronavirus Prevention

Coronavirus Prevention

Park Hill Training and Assessment Centre understands the needs for Key Workers to be able to continue safely with their work during these times. We will begin to organise courses in May with reduced numbers on site to comply with social distancing requirements.

In addition to this, we are keen to ensure that all Venue Providers/Instructors/Assessors/Trainees and Candidates take appropriate precautions to minimise the risk of infection.

If you are a training provider who uses us to register candidates please feel free to forward this information onto your candidates, invigilators and venue providers.

 

Please follow the below advice, from the GOV.UK website

 

What to do if you have symptoms

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

  • a high temperature
  • a new continuous cough

 

This will help to protect others in your community while you are infectious.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home, only if your symptoms do not improve or worsen after 7 days

People who are self-isolating with mild symptoms will not be tested.

 

Please follow public health advice and self-isolate for 14 days

 

If you experience cough/fever/shortness of breath even if symptoms are mild, STAY INDOORS, if your symptoms worsen call NHS 111

If the above does not apply to you, you can continue to work as normal.

 

To reduce the risk of infection, please check that others presenting or attending the training or assessments haven’t returned from an affected country or had contact with a confirmed case.

 

We would like to remind everyone to follow the general public health advice…

  • avoid close contact (touching or shaking hands)
  • wash hands often with soap and water; if that is not possible, use hand sanitizer
  • cover mouth and nose with a tissue or the crook of your arm if you sneeze or cough
  • avoid touching your mouth, nose, and eyes

 

This is an evolving situation, the information on this post was correct as of 10.3.20, so please keep up to date with government advice, which can be found
