Coronavirus Safety Directive to Students
As you are aware, the COVID-19 situation in Australia and globally is rapidly changing.
Verico Training’s approach and guidelines for managing this situation are based on the health alerts provided by the Australian Government Department of Health (https://www.health.gov.au) at the timing of publication.
As individuals, we also have a responsibility and duty of care when it comes to the health and safety of ourselves and others.
To help to protect the health and safety of our staff, students and their families, we provide the following outline of precautionary measures to prevent potential exposure to COVID-19.
Symptoms of Coronavirus
Symptoms can range from mild illness to pneumonia.
People with coronavirus may experience:
- flu-like symptoms such as coughing, sore throat and fatigue
- shortness of breath
If You Have Symptoms
If you feel unwell with any of the above symptoms, you must not come onto our premises or to training until you receive a Doctor’s certificate clearing you. In this event, please contact us immediately to postpone and reschedule your training.
Recent International Travel
People who have returned from anywhere overseas are required to self-isolate for 14 days. If you or any of your resident family members have travelled internationally in the last 14 days prior to training, please contact us immediately.
We will be happy to work with you to postpone and reschedule your training, and/or to seek a Doctor’s clearance certificate before attending.
Preventing the Spread of Coronavirus
Authorities advise that Coronavirus is spread through direct human contact and droplets such as from coughing and sneezing, or by contact with contaminated surfaces and objects where the virus can survive several days. To prevent the spread of viruses, practise good hygiene and social distancing.
Social distancing includes staying at home when you are unwell, avoiding large public gatherings if they’re not essential, keeping a distance of 1.5 metres between you and other people whenever possible and minimising physical contact especially with people at higher risk of developing serious symptoms, such as older people and people with existing health conditions.
There’s no need to change your daily routine but taking these social distancing precautions can help protect the people in our community who are most at risk.
To help to prevent Coronavirus infection or transmission, we direct you to do the following at training at all times:
- Thoroughly wash your hands and use alcohol-based hand sanitiser
- Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing or go home if feeling unwell
- Avoid contact with anyone with cold or flu like symptoms outside of work
