A Covid-19 risk assessment has been undertaken in all aspects of business operations and necessary operational changes have been implemented. Key risk factors are guest or staff contacting or transmitting the virus through contaminated surfaces or close interpersonal interactions.
Mitigation of risk is essential and overseen by our 2 appointed safety officers: Melanie in housekeeping and Christo in maintenance. This includes comprehensive and repetitive staff training and awareness, professional sanitization of accommodation between guests stays, limiting contact between guest and staff to the bare minimum, proper use of PPE when on duty, regular routine cleaning protocols in all shared areas, proper and regular use of hand sanitizer or hand washing. Staff have received guidance on the necessity of, and how to stay safe at home and when commuting. Special precautions have been taken,and training provided to employees who have been assessed as at higher risk .
A comprehensive risk analysis and separate training manual is used for this together with a record of training and updates.
In the event that anyone shows symptoms, the South African Department of Health advises first phoning the National Institute of Communicable Diseases (NICD) helpline over going straight to a medical facility, to prevent potential contamination. The NICD hotline number is 080 002 9999.
