Safety Plus Training’s Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
First Aid Courses – The Australian Resuscitation Council has issued the following recommendation, as such we will be postponing all our upcoming First Aid & CPR courses until further notice. All participants who are currently booked onto a courses will be notified and transferred to the next available session when we have authority to restart our training courses.
The ARC recommends that the teaching of routine first aid and resuscitation courses should be postponed until the current COVID-19 pandemic has abated and expert consensus opinion is that there is no longer an unnecessary risk involved in participating in a course.
The ARC recommends that the requirement for resuscitation training and re-certification be considered in the light of the current concerns.
The ARC will be regularly reviewing this recommendation.

Drug and Alcohol Screening – we are still able to conduct Drug and Alcohol Screening at our office. We would advise that only 1 person at a time comes into the office to be screened.
You will need to contact the office beforehand so we can ensure that the area is prepared for screening – we are trying to avoid walk ins at this stage so please contact us at (02) 65711 677 to book in any screening.
First Aid Servicing- we are still servicing kits at our site and onsite whilst taking the necessary COVID-19 precautions.
Again – we are trying to avoid walk ins so please contact us at (02) 65711 677 to book in any first aid kit or first aid room services.
Please look out for broadcasts (email, website and Facebook) for any changes in our current position.
What can we all do in relation to COVID-19?
Everyone must practise good hygiene to protect against infection and prevent the virus spreading. We ask that if you have travelled overseas recently or had contact with someone with Coronavirus (COVID-19) to follow the instructions provided by the Health department.
Good hygiene includes:
· covering your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue
· disposing of tissues properly
· washing your hands often with soap and water, including before and after eating and after going to the toilet
· using alcohol-based hand sanitisers
· cleaning and disinfecting surfaces
· if you are sick, avoiding contact with others and staying more than 1.5 metres away from people
· using gloves when in the workplace or outdoors
We understand that this is a stressful time and we may need extra effort and patience from you – but we think these steps are important to implement.
If you have any questions in relation to any of the above please contact our admin staff at (02) 65711 677.
