Mandatory COVID-19 Hygiene Training Courses
Western Australia’s hospitality industry is being prepared for a return to business with the launch of a mandatory COVID-19 hygiene training program to protect the public and venue staff. This training initiative ensures strong COVID-19 protections will be in place when restrictions are eased in the future.
The course is being delivered by the Australian Hotels Association (WA) and is supported by the McGowan Government.
Premier Mark McGowan commented that although restrictions have recently been relaxed, it is still too early for hospitality venues to open.
“While we’re not there yet, we need to make sure our businesses are prepared. This new mandatory course will help the sector to appropriately plan and prepare for future adjustments whereby workers and patrons alike are better protected from the virus once business is able to resume,” he said.
The online course is designed to safeguard public health and safety, restore public confidence and implement best practice tourism and hospitality hygiene. Importantly, it also supports WA’s economic and employment recovery.
The online training program consists of two tiers:
Tier 1 – Course for all hospitality staff, available to complete now at www.hospitalityhygiene.com
Tier 2 – Course for supervisors and managers (venue hygiene officers). Course launching on Wednesday 6 May
Statutory declarations will be required to be completed by each hospitality business prior to the training being undertaken. Final details on this and opening dates will be finalised shortly. See full details on the AHA Hospitality & Tourism COVID-19 Hygiene Course Fact Sheet here.
