The COVID Safe checklist covers requirements relating to the wellbeing of workers, hygiene and cleaning, social distancing and management of deliveries, contractors and visitors, including keeping records of all who visit the premises.

These checklists are completed, signed and displayed prominently in the main theatre and at our restaurant/cafe.

Mandatory training:  For our food and beverage in the café/restaurant, we are required to undertake mandatory training through TAFE Queensland on COVID Safe for Dining In.

Supplementary training:   For hospitality workers on being COVID safe through Typsy, an online learning management system offered by the Queensland Tourism Industry Council, which we’ve also undertaken.

These workshops commence on Wednesday 17 June and Thursday 18 June and we are completing two modules including Touring and transport and food and wine.
