4front Driving School COVID19 Policy
Unfortunately we are now living in a world with COVID 19 and we are having to find a way to move forward and live with it, as it is not going to go away for the foreseeable future. Therefore we need to stay alert and help prevent the spread of the disease. To do this 4front Driving School have put measures in place to reduce the risk.
4front Driving School COVID 19 policy for students and Instructors
To create a safe hygienic learning environment we have formed a coherent policy based on the government business COVID19 guidance.
General Hygiene for students and Instructors
You must sanitise your hands before entering the vehicle.
-We will provide hand sanitiser or you can bring your own.
-If you cough or sneeze into your hand you must pull over when it is safe to do so and sanitize your hands and controls.
-To avoid this - always try to cough or sneeze into your sleeve or try to clear your throat with your mouth closed.
You must wear a facemask when in the vehicle.
Students must provide their own facemasks and be responsible for bringing their own PPE with them to their lessons,
Disposable facemasks can be used but must be clean / new
Washable facemasks must be clean
Avoiding unnecessary contact between the student and the instructor - this includes hand shakes.
Other basic rules to avoid the spread of COVID19 and other germs:
Wash your hands after using the toilet, before eating.
If you cough/sneeze into your hands - sanitise immediately if it is safe to do so ( or follow the 20-second hand-washing rule if you are at home).
Cough/sneeze into your sleeve, preferably into your elbow. If you use a tissue, discard it properly and clean/sanitize your hands immediately.
Open the windows to ensure open ventilation when necessary and ensure that the fan is set to bring air in from outside the vehicle and not circulate .
Avoid touching your face, particularly eyes, nose, and mouth with your hands to prevent from getting infected.
If you display any symptoms of COVID19 then you must inform your instructor before your lesson so that the lesson is rescheduled.
The guidelines state that If you have symptoms of coronavirus, self-isolate for 7 days.
After 7 days:
if you do not have a high temperature, you can stop self-isolating
if you still have a high temperature, keep self-isolating until your temperature returns to normal
If you have been in close contact with or live with anyone who has Covid 19 or has been displaying signs then you should not attend your driving lesson.
The guidance states:
If you live with someone who has symptoms, self-isolate for 14 days from the day their symptoms started.
This is because it can take 14 days for symptoms to appear.
If more than 1 person at home has symptoms, self-isolate for 14 days from the day the first person started having symptoms.
If you get symptoms while self-isolating – you should self-isolate for 7 days from when your symptoms started, even if it means you're self-isolating for longer than 14 days.
If you do not get symptoms while self-isolating – you can stop self-isolating after 14 days.
If you have symptoms
If you are self isolating, have a new continuous cough, loss of taste or smell and / or high temperature please do not attend training. Contact us as soon as possible and your training will be rescheduled free of charge.
We thank you for your support during these difficult times. Stay safe.
