The recent updates entail taking social distancing and increased hygiene precautions to ensure the safety of students. The precautions are by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards.

Speaking on behalf of Richmond Training Concepts, a representative stated that the company is closely monitoring the pandemic and following the latest guidelines stipulated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). With the understanding that during these uncertain times the concern of every individual is safety, the company is taking three categories of steps to help prevent the spread of the virus during classroom activities.

The first stage comprises steps to be taken before the class begins. Among them is insisting that students reschedule their class sessions if they experience symptoms like fever, coughing, shortness of breath, among others.

The administration will also take steps to ensure the sterilization of all non-disposable equipment before and after each session. Additionally, each session will consist of limited student quotas to ensure the maintenance of the stipulated physical distancing during the classes.

The second set of steps will take place during class sessions. The representative assures that during this time the instructor will review the procedures to be taken to minimize the risk of infection. These include recommending that students always wear face masks during class sessions, except those instances where CPR is being practiced.

Students will also be required to partake in the necessary hand washing procedure of at least 20 seconds. These are to be performed at the commencement and termination of each session as well as at the before and after meals.

Other precautionary measures during class entail the wearing of gloves during all skill practices and assessment scenarios, the use of breathing barriers while giving rescue breaths, the stipulated physical distancing, and the appropriate sanitization of all class materials and surfaces.

After classes, all the manikins will be cleaned using the necessary approved process for each class. This process, the representative assured, is in keeping with the guidance of the CDC, the manikin manufacturer’s directions, and the process recommended by the manufacturers of the cleaning products.
