Safety training courses often include practical sessions that may require the instructor and students to work in close proximity, and in some cases, require some physical contact.  Students who are not comfortable with this should wear masks or register in a course after the COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted.

 

During COVID-19 restrictions SS Training Connections will make every effort to follow recommended practice to minimize risk of exposure.

  • Hand sanitizer will be made available.

  • Hygiene rules will be posted, and will be reviewed by instructors.

  • Classroom seating will be arranged to meet social distancing guidelines.

  • Instructors will be encouraged to adapt delivery methods where possible to minimize time spent in close proximity.

General Hygiene rules for students:

  • If you have flu like symptoms, have been in contact with anyone with flu like symptoms,  have been in contact with anyone who has been out of the country, or have been in contact with anyone who has been in isolation, please register in a course at a later date when restrictions are removed.

  • Use the provided hand sanitizers each time you enter the classroom.

  • Wash your hands after using the washroom, before eating, and if you cough/sneeze into your hands (follow the 20-second hand-washing rule). 

  • Cough/sneeze into your sleeve, preferably into your elbow. If you use a tissue, discard it properly and clean/sanitize your hands immediately.

  • Avoid touching your face, particularly eyes, nose, and mouth with your hands to prevent from getting infected.

  • Maintain 2 meters distance from others whenever possible, including during washroom use.
