Here's how Meditrain Otago is updating its classroom practices to keep your workers safe, and help reduce the community spread of COVID-19
As New Zealand continues to see confirmed cases of COVID-19, it is really important that we stay well-informed on the potential risks to you, our Customers, in sending your workers onto our sites.

Infection control policy
The objective of this policy is to maintain health and safety of staff, clients and community when face to face training is re introduced.
The office is to be cleaned before every course, after every course and after breaks. Areas to concentrate on during breaks would be the common areas. Door handles, bathroom, Kitchen and reception area. Cleaning is to be done with high grade medical cleaner. End of day cleaning is also to concentrate on chairs in the training room and clip boards are to no longer to be used. If client uses our pens they can take them home or throw them out at the end of the day.
Manikins are to remain shirtless for ease of cleaning. Cleaned before and after courses and wiped with V wipes between clients.
Staff are to wear gloves when handling any common equipment, for example paper work from clients. Unless the equipment is only used by the 3 office staff then gloves do not need to be used. Masks are available and can be used when clients are on the premises.
Clients must wear gloves when touching any of the manikins or equipment used for training. At the end of the course get them leave paper work on chair and put on gloves to collect it all.

Class sizes will remain small to enable good social distancing. Limited to 10 people per course. Chairs to be moved further apart.

Instructor is to give a brief first thing in the morning of what is expected of clients. If someone is in the hall please wait till they are in the room before proceeding. And keep you distance from others to maintain safety.
All clients will fill out and sign a short survey before the course. If anyone answers yes to any of the questions they are to be rescheduled.
Class sizes are to remain low until further notice. And the days there is a course limited office staff to be present to lower numbers within the building.
We will continue to monitor the situation daily and keep you informed of any new solutions we produce which help reduce the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19.
