Fáilte Ireland Covid 19 Safety Charter
I have been awarded the Fáilte Ireland Safety Charter, which confirms that I am following recommended guidelines and that I have been trained in hygiene and safety controls.
This charter was devised by our national tourism body Fáilte Ireland and is endorsed by the Government of Ireland.
As a workshop facilitator, who is regularly in contact with people in my studio or via my workshops, I have implemented a range of new measures in order to contain the spread of the covid-19, for your comfort and safety when you join me for workshops and private sessions, in my studio or in other venues around Ireland.
My sense is that at least having an explicit group protocol in place, allows us to carry on with our day and enjoy ourselves, knowing that precautions have been taken
‘Wildfire and wax’ Hygiene Responsibility agreement
Under new government guidelines I can only accommodate event bookings to a maximum of 10 people in large venues In Ireland ( Block T) and three people in my studio in Whitegate
Cleaning and Sanitising
Customers will have access to alcohol based Hand sanitisers in the studio or venues at all entrances and exits.
I will make sure that the venue is clean and hygienic:
Surfaces (e.g. desks and tables will be cleaned and sterilised before your arrival)
objects ( blowtorches, brushes) will also be wiped with disinfectant regularly during the workshop
the customers toilets and wash room will also be checked regularly, cleaned and sterilized . customers will have access to a sink, warm water, soap and paper towels . I will request each participant wash their hands thoroughly, first thing on arrival and throughout the day as follows:
– On arrival.
– Before and after using facilities.
– Before and after you eat.
– After coughing or sneezing.
Food and drink
Guests are requested to bring their own lunch and their own cup for tea and coffee.
If you must cough or sneeze during the day, please excuse yourself from the immediate group space to a distance of at least 2 meters to do so. Cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue and dispose of tissue in bin provided.
All participant and facilitator are asked to wear face covering during the workshops. (I will have single use masks in the studio ) Please do let me know if you are unable to due to health conditions) . I thank you for your co-operation with this.
I will have disposable latex gloves available for all to wear during the whole length of the workshop
Posters highlighting this hygiene protocol will be displayed in the venue highlighting all measures taken
After the workshop
I will retain the names and contact details of all participants for at least one month. This will help public health authorities trace people who may have been exposed to COVID-19 if one or more participants become ill shortly after the event
Please note these are basic protective measures as recommended by WHO and my sense is that at least having an explicit group protocol in place, allows us to carry on with our day without anyone feeling a burden to name or tame the ‘elephant in the room’, alone.
