Our ongoing approach to COVID-19
NR TAFE's current protocol for delivery includes undertaking of risk assessments, following a risk mitigation guideline and a checklist prior to delivery. These include preventative and control measures, such as:
- Adhering to social distancing where practical
- Having hand sanitiser readily available (on campus, in classrooms and at events)
- Maintaining good hygiene including hand washing
- Regular cleaning of classrooms and facilities
- Ensuring students and staff stay home if unwell
- Inducting students on updated practices and procedures
Visitors, including students, are required to check in via the Safe WA app or form when visiting North Regional TAFE campuses, canteen facilities, student accommodation, hair and beauty facilities, and Jobs and Skills Centres.
- Follow good hygiene practices such as washing your hands with soap, covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing.
- Practice social distancing. This means you should keep at least 1.5 metres between you and other in public places, and you should not shake hands or hug when greeting others.
