Online Covid-19 awareness training for South Australia’s tourism sector

A new free online training program has launched to help South Australia’s $8.1 Billion tourism and hospitality sector rebound post Covid-19.

The 30-minute online course is designed to give employees and business owners in the tourism and hospitality sector the basics needed to prevent and control the spread of infection.

Developed by the South Australian Tourism Commission (SATC), in partnership with South Australian-owned business Health Safety Environment Australia, the COVID-19 Awareness Training course offers a step-by-step process to help minimise risk and ensure appropriate cleaning practices are in place.

SATC chief executive Rodney Harrex said the strong feedback from the tourism and hospitality sector was that staff wanted to learn more about how to stop the spread of the virus in their workplaces, and to ensure customers were not put at risk.

“We know that businesses are champing at the bit to welcome back customers, but that they also want to do the right thing and make sure they know what their obligations are,” he said.

“Businesses can use the course as a quick way to bring their staff up to speed, and step them through the fundamentals of infection prevention and control for Covid-19.

“It will give an assurance to customers that the appropriate cleaning measures are in place, and help kick-start the sector with confidence.

“This is an important piece of the post-Covid recovery program, because no one wants to see us undo all the good work.”
