Categorised as Training and Education we are exempt from the limit of 6 people gathering. However, we have planned to meet guidelines and requirements for a ‘Covid secure venue’ to reduce risk to the lowest reasonably practicable level by taking preventative measures.

How we are operating,

We are moving our venues where required in order to ensure that social distancing can be applied which includes distance between seating in classrooms.

We are providing hand sanitiser as well as access to handwashing facilities and putting other measures in place to ensure cleanliness of surfaces.

We will provide you with a copy of our risk assessment and will be providing an exlplaination in our initial course briefing on the measures in place along with clear signage to remind and encourage everyone to join in with adhearing to the measures.

We will offer online training and support for theory modules as an alternative where attending a venue becomes difficult.

 At the point of application we will ask you to understand and accept the control measures used by Deer Central for the purposes of safety and during the COVID-19 period.

3. Online Shopping

We are keen to continue equipping you with good quality kit through our online shopping service whilst adhearing to guidance and minimising risk.

How we are operating,

In addition to all the workplace measures we are all becoming familiar with we minimize direct contact with or contamination of your products and packaging through use of PPE.

Although we are close to our local village post office we are reducing the frequency of visits in preference of one visit per week in order to limit face to face interaction.
