What we are doing to make our classes COVID Safe

The safety of every person who comes to our classes and all of our educators is paramount and we are only holding classes in line with relevant Federal & State COVID-19 requirements & restrictions in place at the time.

CPR Kids has carried out extensive Risk Assessments to make sure that all aspects of how we teach you the lifesaving skills of CPR & First Aid are as safe as possible.  

As always, we have strict infection control policies in place to keep you safe and are registered as a COVID Safe business!

__________________________

What we are doing to help keep you safe:

FACE TO FACE CLASSES 

1) Limiting our class sizes: 

We are holding classes in line with the allowed restrictions for each venue. We love having your children in our class. However, unfortunately, we are currently not able to accommodate children who are mobile. Babes in arms, and breastfeeding, are always welcome. We ask that children who do attend, are contained within their pram or within the strict physical distancing areas required.

2) Respecting 1.5m physical distancing & the 4 square meter rule: 

We hold classes in line with the allowed restrictions for each venue and members of separate households will be seated at least 1.5m apart from each other.

3) Encouraging good hand hygiene and continuing high level infection control: 

We have hand sanitiser and isopropyl alcohol wipes available for all participants to use.  Equipment is not shared and is thoroughly cleaned before and after every class.

All of our classes are taught by expert paediatric nurses, who are highly experienced in infection control and hand hygiene.  They will always follow our strict infection control policies.

4) Modifying how we teach: 

We are ensuring that we meet COVID-Safe regulations and guidelines.

We are making sure that no equipment is shared between members of separate households, and have taken steps to teach in ways that remove interaction with other participants.  

We are not currently practicing “breaths” on our manikins during the practical component of CPR.  This is done by “pretending” only, during this time.

5) Complying with regulations: 

We are only holding classes in line with all relevant Federal & State requirements in place at the time.  

We are guided by:

· Federal Government: https://covid19inlanguage.homeaffairs.gov.au/

· NSW Government: https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19

· QLD Government: https://www.covid19.qld.gov.au/

· Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC): https://resus.org.au/

Please be advised that, during COVID-19, your contact details may be confidentially provided to our venue hosts, in line with Government requirements.

6) Ensuring our educator has good health: 

Our paediatric nurse educators will only teach if they have not been identified as, nor as a contact of, a person with confirmed COVID-19, not been advised nor are required to self-isolate due to COVID-19 circumstances; not experiencing fever, scratchy throat, cough, cold or flu like symptoms; nor are generally unwell.

7) Record keeping:

Please be advised that, during COVID-19, your contact details may be confidentially provided to our venue hosts, in line with Government requirements.
