Working Safely in Restaurants and Bars during COVID-19


‘Working Safely in Restaurants and Bars During COVID-19’ is a training course specifically designed for bars and restaurants to use as part of their reopening procedures after lockdown.

This course updates our original ‘Coronavirus Aware for bars and restaurants’ module and with fresh images, case studies and layouts serves as both a new module for staff who have not previously undertaken this type of training as well as a refresher for those people who undertook the original ‘Coronavirus Aware’. ‘Working Safely in Bars and Restaurants During COVID-19’ is designed to support staff to not only apply the changes to work procedures that venues are implementing but too importantly, understand why these changes are needed. Using a range of activities, staff will develop or refresh their understanding of why distancing and wearing PPE will keep themselves safe at work and their role in breaking the infection chain by using key personal hygiene standards such as using thorough hand washing techniques. The module enforces the responsibility that all staff have, to carry out disinfection processes and high touch point cleaning in the hospitality environment. Also updated is information from our original Coronavirus Aware for Bars and restaurants module regarding the spread of the virus, vaccines, virus mutations, and for the UK tiers and lockdowns. We have also expanded the ‘Looking after your guests’ section to help staff consider the way their body language needs to be adapted when wearing a mask and to consider positive responses to use with customers in different real scenarios. For staff requiring a more in-depth understanding of cleaning we also have our ‘Clinical Cleaning’ module which falls under our Professional Housekeeping programme and is also available as a single module Venue managers will have the confidence that the ‘Working Safely in Restaurants and Bars and During COVID-19’ course is designed by hospitality professionals using best practice standards.
