COVID health and safety practices for in-person workshops
As restrictions have eased throughout the province, we are happy to offer more of a relaxed atmosphere in our in-person workshops.
While we are committed to delivering high-quality training, our operations are guided by risk management, and the health and well-being of our students and instructors takes precedence. We have adjusted our requirements, while consistently maintaining enhanced health and safety measures in accordance with the latest guidance from the BC CDC and our health ministry.
Our current infection control measures include:
- If you experience cold or flu-like symptoms or test positive for COVID-19, please stay at home, and implement preventive measures to reduce the spread of infection. We will reschedule you for another workshop at your convenience.
- It is the students’ responsibility to bring their own PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), including 3-ply or medical masks, gloves, and eye protection, and to wear them during the course when instructed.
- Courses will commence with a thorough discussion on the effective use of PPE, its advantages and limitations, and the proper donning and doffing techniques as defined by the CDC in in this article.
- Building a “patient” scarecrow in advance of the workshop for use in all simulated First Aid scenarios is optional for in-person workshops. If any students have concerns about participating in hands-on activities with others, they should consider building a scarecrow “patient”.
Our practices may evolve as we acquire new information or as recommendations change. Slipstream holds the authority to decide when and under what conditions we will conduct courses, relying on medical advice and our best judgment. We may modify activities or locations with short notice.
