KLTC Covid-19 Action Plan & Risk Assessments

KLTC began actively planning its Covid-19 reponse towards the end of May 2020, using current BTF, Swim England and UK Government as guidance in an attempt to pre-empt, and therefore fasttrack compliance, once the BTF allowed group training in large enough to be practical for us and our members. This page is live documentation of the club's current (and past) Risk Assessments (RAs), and any actions the club, its committee or Covid-19 Action team have taken during the current pandemic.

There is another page on this website that contains up to date advice and information for members here, or you can click the banner above (if still present).

Chair proposes and Committee formally agrees, via KLTC committee private FB group, to co-opt club member Darren Elsdon on the the committee as club Covid-19 Officer due to his commercial Covid-19 H&S experience, with initial responsibilities to be in line with the SwimEngland guidance published the same day. Since the BTF and SE are working together on their action plan, it has been assumed the same advice come from them shortly too. SwimEngland's advice on this date is:

"The club must appoint a Covid-19 Officer (preferably a person with Health and Safety experience) who will be responsible for:

  • Oversight of the COVID-19 risk assessments and recording or storage of thes.
  • Ensuring the necessary level of risk mitigations are in place
  • Ensuring compliance with social distancing guidance.
  • Swimmers, staff and any partners or hosts adhere to this guidance.
  • Ensuring adherence to this guidance document.
  • Ensuring any facility used is following Government Guidelines."
31/05/2020  Informal Messenger group set up to plan an discuss a possible Club Covid-19 RA and action plan. V1(draft1)  sent to all for comment:
Chair, Vice-chair, Welfare, Training Coordinator, Junior Rep & Darren
  •  Darren to email V1(draft1) to all in chat for comment.

Chair asks club member Darren Elsdon if he could help put together a draft Covid-19 RA, in an attempt to better understand what may be required to resume group training as a club, and try to pre-empt BTF guidance so that the club will be able to resume group training as soon as practically possible once it becomes possible.

  •  Once an initial draft is available, include a few committee members for some initial comments, before asking committee to formalise te process.
