Following on from the recent announcement of a new national 'lockdown' as part of measure to prevent the ongoing spread of COVID-19, HYA Training Limited has further reviewed our COVID risk assessment.
Therefore, with effect from Monday 2nd November 2020 and until further notice, the wearing of face coverings will remain mandatory in all communal areas within our centre, including:
• The toilet area
• All corridors and stairways
• The vending machine/canteen area.
Students, staff, contractors and visitors:
All students/staff/contractors/visitors whom are not exempt should have a clean face covering readily available. These should be put on prior to entering our centre and must remain in place until arrival in the classroom/office when they can be removed and placed in a sealable plastic bag.
Given the UK Government's stance on the requirement for education to remain accesible throughout the 'lockdown' period, Study Programme students will continue to attend their tuition sessions as per their timetable. In order to ensure an increased level of safety for all those involved, tutors will be holding various sessions via online video tuition, wherever possible.
All HYA apprentices will now engage in their tuition via remote video-sessions only and will no longer be allowed onto site unless specific permission has been granted by a member of HYA Training's staff.
Whilst on site:
Social distancing, hand hygiene and the use of face coverings remains a key feature of our hygiene and safety measures.
Increasing evidence is now available that wearing face coverings can reduce the transmission of coronavirus from an infected person to others.
We have a supply of disposable face coverings available, please ask our staff member on reception to provide you with one prior to entering our site.
The wearing of face coverings is to be considered a social responsibility for those who can wear them, with the aim of providing increased reassurance to all students, staff members, visitors and contractors, including those most vulnerable to serious illness.
If you are concerned that you may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, please do not attend your appointment/class at HYA Training. Instead, please contact your a member of staff at the first available opportunity.
