Full Details

Kent County Council (KCC) is keen to support organisations within the KCC area reopen and continue operating in a way that is safe for themselves, their staff and their customers in relation to infection prevention, including COVID-19.

Although the country continues at Stage 4 of the government’s roadmap to recovery, COVID-19 is continuing to spread, with the infection rates increasing week on week. With that in mind it is still vitally important that organisations continue to deliver their services in a way that helps prevent further outbreaks.

The aim of the COVID-19 Safe Advice and Training for Small and Micro Businesses, Sole Traders and Not for Profit Organisations is to promote safe practice in the workplace by raising awareness and identifying effective methods of infection control along with assessing risk.

Course Syllabus

-          Risk factors for infection

-          A look at the chain of infection and transmission

-          How to reduce infection risks

-          Why a risk assessment is essential

-          How to complete a risk assessment



To qualify for the free place(s) you will need to be a sole trader with a Unique Tax Reference, small and microbusiness or Not for Profit Organisation registered via companies house or a charitable organisation registered via the charity commission that operate in the KCC Local Authority area. If registered outside of KCC however, you may receive free training if your primary area of delivery is within KCC geographical area (proof of this may be requested).

Each organisation will also need to complete and return their completed Risk Assessment  (one risk assessment required per organisation) within 7 working days of their training session.
