COVID-19 SAFETY, HEALTH & WELL BEING
TAI-JUTSU-KAI JU-JUTSU association considers the health, safety and well being of all its members, students, instructors and families of paramount importance and accepts its responsibility, as a ‘martial arts association’ for the provision of a safe and healthy training environment.
Wherever TAI-JUTSU-KAI undertakes its activities, it shall take all necessary actions to protect the Health, Safety and Well being of its members in controlling the spread of COVID-19 and ensure that the Health and Safety of the public and visitors is not adversely affected by its activities.
All members of TAI-JUTSU-KAI shall ensure that they carry out their activities and training in a controlled manner, giving due consideration for the controls required in relation to COVID-19 at all times.
Health, Safety and Well being is a very important part of TAI-JUTSU-KAI responsibilities and we shall endeavour to provide support, advice and documentation to responsible persons at each TAI-JUTSU-KAI registered club to enable the implementation of this policy.
Adherence to this policy is required by all member clubs and signed confirmation is required.

COVID-19 SAFE CONTROL PROCEDURE
Review – This policy, controls and risk assessment must be reviewed in-line with any Government, Local Authority or Association guidance that may be issued from time to time.
These requirements are mandatory unless amended following issued guidance from one of the official bodies stated above.
Temperature Testing: (optional)
Temperature screening may be conducted at the entrance to the class by the use of a forehead scan thermometer. This is optional because students should not be attending if the have symptoms of COVID-19.
If the scanner’s reading result is within the normal range of body temperature then it is considered safe to allow access to the training class. If a person’s temperature is equal to or in excess of 37.8°C, they must follow the procedure to manage a person with symptoms and the person will not be allowed to enter the class training area. The person recording the reading of 37.8°C degrees or higher, shall advise the person so recorded that they must seek immediate Test & Trace for the COVID-19 virus, and follow the strict isolations procedure.
General Welfare and Well Being
It is in the interest of the club, instructor, Tai-Jutsu-Kai insures and the individual to ensure that COVID-19 related incidents are recorded by the club in a suitable format and or in the accident book.
These records must be kept and filed separate to the accident book and not left available for general access (data protection). (Accident books are obtainable from St John Ambulance, Red Cross, and HMSO).
Well Being (Government Advice)
Taking care of your mind as well as your body is really important if you need to stay at home or you are shielding because of coronavirus (COVID-19).
You may feel bored, frustrated or lonely. You may also be low, worried or anxious, or concerned about your finances, your health or those close to you.
It’s important to remember that it’s OK to feel this way and that everyone reacts differently. Remember, for most of us, these feelings will pass. Staying at home may be difficult, but you’re helping to protect yourself and others by doing it.
The government also has wider guidance on staying at home as a result of coronavirus. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-for-the-public-on-mental-health-and-wellbeing/guidance-for-the-public-on-the-mental-health-and-wellbeing-aspects-of-coronavirus-covid-19
Test & Trace
Should a member display symptom of COVID-19 during training, they must leave immediately and return home and follow the government guidelines, particular self-isolation and Test & Trace. Should the need arise to provide information for Government tracing purposes, it is recommended that the club keep suitable records: Such like a signing in sheet with Name and Contact Numbers, these records must be retained for 21 days. (this is in-accordance with Government advice).
First Aid Facilities
The Club Representative shall ensure that suitable first aid is available during training. The first aider shall have received basic or enhanced first aid training to a level that is suitable and sufficient for the club requirements. A suitable first aid kit must also be made available.
If you have concerns regarding administration of First Aid due to COVID-19, please ensure your own safety and well being and practice limited contact measures. Do not put yourselves at risk. (https:// www.hse.gov.uk/coronavirus/first-aid-and-medicals/first-aid-certificate-coronavirus.htm)
