Hotels find inspiration in other hotels for everything from design concept and marketing to operations. We should look for inspiration from countries that are already preparing to ease the lockdown.

Hospitality staff in Australia will be required to complete a mandatory COVID-19 hygiene training online before the re-opening of hotels, bars, restaurants and cafes.

 

All staff will have to complete the first stage of the two-tier course, with managers and supervisors also required to complete the second, more advanced program.  Every venue will be required to have a staff member with the more advanced accreditation on shift at all times, as the venue’s dedicated hygiene officer.

 

Businesses will also have to display signage that the venue is compliant with all conditions.

 

Staff will receive a certificate of completion, a badge and wallet card which contains prompters of the key learning outcomes from the course.

 

Premier Mark McGowan said he expected around 70,000 people hospitality workers to complete the free course, which is being funded by a$1.8 million cash injection from the WA Government.

 

Australian Hotels Association (WA) chief executive Bradley Woods said it would take 45 minutes to an hour to complete the training, with the course covering everything from social distancing to food handling and hygiene.

 

What are we doing to get ready in Scotland?
