TRADESPEOPLE WORKING IN PEOPLE’S HOMES
On entry to the home you should wash your hands using soap and water for 20 seconds. You should wash your hands regularly, particularly after blowing your nose, sneezing or coughing, and when leaving the property. Where facilities to wash hands are not available, hand sanitiser should be used, and you should always carry this with you at all times.
Masks are to be worn at all times. The aim of wearing a face mask is to protect your mouth and nose from a client’s respiratory secretions. Wearing a face mask also protects clients by minimising the risk of passing on infection from yourself
Note: Do not go to work if you have symptoms of COVID-19 such as cough and or temperature
Gloves – protect you from picking up the COVID-19 virus from the environment (such as contaminated surfaces) or directly from people with COVID-19. Disposable gloves must be worn when providing direct care and when exposure to body fluids is likely. Disposable gloves are single use and must be disposed of immediately after completion of a procedure or task and after each task, followed by hand hygiene. Care must be taken not to touch the face, mouth or eyes when wearing gloves.
Hand sanitizer must be applied immediately before & after every entry of the property and after any activity or contact that potentially results in your hands becoming contaminated. This includes the removal of personal protective equipment (PPE), equipment decontamination and waste handling
You should maintain a safe distance (at least 2 metres) from any household occupants at all times and ensure good ventilation in the area where you are working, including opening the window.
No work should be carried out in any household which is isolating or where an individual is being shielded, unless your work is to remedy a direct risk to the safety of the household, such as emergency call outs.
Thank you to you all for all your patience, support and understanding over the last few weeks, it is very much appreciated.
