South Australian COVID-19 Awareness Training – online training program

The South Australian COVID-19 Awareness Training is a free 30-minute online course designed to give employees and business owners in the tourism and hospitality sector the basics needed to understand prevention and control the spread of COVID-19, as well as give customers a COVID-clean confidence.

The training course was developed by the South Australian Tourism Commission in partnership with Health Safety Environment Australia (HSEA). It is not an accreditation course for businesses, it is a simple awareness course designed to help individuals understand the basics to assist them in adapting to a “COVID-safe” way of operating.

South Australian tourism and hospitality businesses are encouraged to use the course as a quick way to bring themselves and their staff up to speed, and step through the fundamentals of infection prevention and control for COVID-19.

The South Australian COVID-19 Awareness Training course can give an assurance to customers that the appropriate cleaning measures are in place, and staff are awareness of ways to prevent and control the spread of COVID-19, as safety becomes a higher priority in their decision making about where to go.

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a certificate which they can print for display in the business and/or use in marketing and promotional material.

South Australian Events COVID-19 Guideline

The South Australian Events COVID-19 Guideline is designed to assist the events (including festivals) and entertainment industry to deliver COVID-Safe events (that attract mass gatherings) in South Australia that protect workers, patrons and the broader community. This is a guideline only, and has been prepared prior to our reviewing the COVID Management Plan documentation released today. This Guideline has not yet formally been endorsed by SA Health, but our intention is to evolve the document and have it formally endorsed in the near future.
