Infection Control Training for COVID-19

In response to COVID-19, RSA Melbourne has introduced a new infection training control course.

Nationally Recognised Infection Control Training for the Hospitality Industry

  • HLTSS00066 Infection control Skill Set (Food Handling)
  • HLTINFCOV001 Comply with infection prevention and control policies and procedures

Course Details

The nation-wide lockdown implemented by the Federal and all State and Territory governments in response to COVID-19 has come at a huge cost to the hospitality industry.  As Australia re-opens customer-facing workplaces many customers will want to support their local restaurants, cafes, pubs, clubs, and other hospitality venues.  Those venues able to reopen cannot afford another shut down so there must be vigilance in keeping these venues safe.  Whilst this course is highly theoretical, which is far from what training in the hospitality industry is known for, it is imperative that business owners and workplace supervisors in the hospitality industry are trained in how to set up and implement infection prevention and control policy and procedures in the workplace to minimise the spread of infection, like COVID-19.

This course focuses on hand hygiene and care, routine surface cleaning, use of personal protective equipment, waste disposal, hazard identification, risk assessment in relation to infection control, implementing control measures in the workplace and general knowledge of infection and transmission.

This course will be delivered online and certification for workers will be completed after employees are assessed by their supervisor in the workplace.

  • Guidelines for the prevention and control of infection
