Update - Student Placement during COVID-19

AEAV have now attended 5 meetings regarding the resumption of student placements, which is projected to occur in the coming weeks. Student placements were postponed earlier this year when health risks related to COVID-19 were identified.

The Working Group has been considering a pilot to recommence student placements with a view to returning to business as usual. The AEAV will continue to fight for your safety and welfare in this unique environment. Topics discussed include but are not limited to:

  • PPE availability,
  • Donning and doffing,
  • Branch locations,
  • Student uniform availability,
  • Communication to staff,
  • Support networks for staff,
  • Risk Assessment
  • Timeline for Pilot Stages
  • AV response to positive cases or breaches
  • How to address staff concerns

A number of these areas still require work to ensure the risks to your safety are mitigated as much as is reasonably practicable. Further updates will be available in due course.
