Updated January 2022

The Health and Safety at Work legislation requires business to provide protection for staff and customers and consequently it is reasonable to continue to undertake

formal risk assessments and take some precautions against the transmission of infection.

As the pandemic has progressed it has become clear that the primary route of infection between people is airborne. Good ventilation, social distancing and the wearing of

face coverings are the best protection against transmission. All pet businesses should undertake a risk assessment to consider how to reduce the potential for staff becoming

infected by clients and vice versa. The simple of expedient of, for instance, opening windows for training classes and using outside areas as much as possible for the handover

of animals are sensible precautions. Some business operators may feel that insisting on face coverings for staff and clients are a condition of business. When dealing with

clients from an infected or isolating household the risk assessment may make it prudent to continue to use the handover protocol.

It has also become clear that dogs and cats do not play a significant role in the transmission of the virus.

Kimble Stewart Hall

Covid Reminders: Risk Assessment August 21

Measures in place

The hall will retain the physical measures already in place:

 QR posters

 hand sanitiser stations

 posters requiring face coverings on entry and more frequent cleaning of

regularly touched surfaces

 Chairs to be placed in quarantine area after use and to be labelled with date


Hirers to keep a log of all participants with contact details. And invite to use QR code


Hirers to wipe down surfaces and empty waste bins at end of hire.

Hirers to ensure adequate ventilation

Face Masks: Wearing a face covering will reduce risk and the risk to others, where

you come in to contact with people you don’t normally meet in enclosed and crowded

spaces. Face coverings will remain advisable in confined spaces such as toilets,

kitchens and corridors and at more crowded events.

Individuals to get a test if advised to do so and self- isolate if tested positive

Risk Assessment for Indoor/Outdoor Training – 1-2-1 / family - people social distancing

See updates inserted for 6/01/2022

Training of dogs is an important element of their social development. Dog trainers may continue to provide advice on training on a one-to-one basis using technology to connect the trainer and client. It may also be possible to run classes by video link. If a trainer can utilise a secure safe area to provide training, clients can meet the trainer there providing social distance can be maintained and class sizes are limited to comply with current government guidance (2m should be adhered to where possible). There should be no physical contact between the trainer and client or dog and social distance should be maintained at all times.

Where trainers normally use an indoor space for classes the trainer should undertake a risk assessment before re-starting classes. The assessment should include the ability to maintain a two metre social distance between clients. This may require the establishment of a one-way system during entry and exit to the room and limiting the number of clients in a class. The trainer must also ensure additional hygiene measures such as regular cleaning of items such as door handles and light switches are in place.

Owners of dogs from infected or self-isolating households pose a significantly higher risk to the trainer and should not be accepted. Owners can leave their dogs with a trainer providing the business handover protocol is followed and social distancing is maintained.

Dog Training Sessions - using Social Distancing measures

Before re-commencing sessions you must consider the Government guidance and all the potential risks associated with this. Training sessions must take place outdoors and a maximum of 6 people are permitted to meet at any one time but following social distancing measures.

•Will handlers need to queue up to enter the training area, if so can they maintain socially distanced from other handlers? Yes, it is possible and advise prior to class plus signs in place, in addition to person present to sign people in.

Only one class present at a time and advised on social distance parking in car park to replicate that already used in field parking.

•Will you need signs, markers or cones to facilitate these procedures? All signs and notices are in place.

•Are there any other people in the venue at that time, if so how do handlers get into the venue and observe social distancing? Only dog club present.


•How can you ensure safe hygiene at each training session? Sanitizer on entry, in hall, in person and on exit. Temperature taken.

•Paperwork could be emailed to dog owners prior to the class. Remember that any paperwork given out should be prepared at least 72 hours in advance and put into a bag or box ready to take to class, The class instructor should wear gloves when handing out paperwork out or sanitise hands before and after. Rare for this to be required but puppy packs are printed the week before and placed in plastic sheets, than can also be sanitised if needed.

•If any handler is unwell or showing symptoms they must not come to class. True!

Class sizes and content

•Training classes must take place outdoors and a maximum of 8 people are permitted to meet at any one time but following social distancing measures. This means a maximum of 8 handlers with 1 instructor or less if there are more than 1 instructor/assistant. Yes

Puppies will be returning first and most advanced later, daytime classes first and possibly evening classes at a later point.

•As instructors cannot handle a client’s dog, how can you avoid this during a lesson? Use gloves, sanatiser or extra lead.

•When demonstrating training techniques, can the instructor use their own dog to show something or demonstrate in another way? Yes

•Instructors should be very mindful of allowing dogs to be off lead during a training session. Does your venue have a safe area where this can be done without a dog interfering with others? Yes and management of dog individually.

•Consider multiple handlers with dogs on leads. Dogs on the end of a normal length of lead may be able to access another hander, so it may be advisable to position handlers further apart so that social distancing measures can be upheld. Yes

•Social distancing and class control must be observed at all times. Preventing inadvertent unwanted contact between dogs will need to be considered. Yes

•The instructor’s ability to control and steer the class is vital to the safe participation of everyone taking part. Yes

•Do you have a training plan for your lessons? Will your lessons need to be adapted to enable you to follow social distancing measures? Adapted according to weather, numbers and ability of dogs and handlers per class.

•Remember handlers who are engrossed in engaging with their dogs may sometimes forget to space themselves appropriately. Yes.

On lead work – This can be done in small groups but social distancing must be observed and common sense must prevail. The instructor’s ability to control and steer the class is vital to the safe participation of everyone taking part.

Off lead work - This will be dependent on the space and restraints of the training area being used and ability of the dogs and handlers taking part. The instructor’s ability to control and steer the class is vital to the safe participation of everyone taking part.

Stays – These will be dependent on the space and restraints of the training area being used and ability of the dogs and handlers taking part.

Recall - This will be dependent on the space and restraints of the training area being used and ability of the dogs and handlers taking part. The instructor’s ability to control and steer the class is vital to the safe participation of everyone taking part. Consider the use longer leads/lines or on lead puppy recalls for younger and inexperienced dogs

Playing with Toys on or off lead - This will be dependent on the space and restraints of the training area being used and ability of the dogs and handlers taking part. The instructor’s ability to control and steer the class is vital to the safe participation of everyone taking part. Playing with toys can be done on lead but extra care must be taken if playing with a dog off the lead so that social distancing is not breached

The bellow information will also be e mailed to class members and used to build a combined risk assessment with the committee of Stewart hall, this will also be available to my class members or for 1-2-1.
