CoSE Covid-19 Guidelines for staff and PGRs

Planning a return on campus after 1st September

 

New staff and PGRs New staff and PGRs should have completed the online fire safety training and be familiar with the relevant emergency management protocols when working on campus.
Covid-19 induction Similarly, everybody working on campus must have completed the UofG online Moodle Covid-19 induction, and local Covid-19 induction where relevant.
Cleaning regime The regular cleaning by Cleaning Services must be complemented with good practice from individuals cleaning their hands and regular contact surfaces before and after use. Hand sanitisers and cleaning materials should be made readily available.
Ventilation All rooms have been assessed for ventilation. Building mechanical air ventilation systems have been set to maximise fresh air flow. Where practical, windows should be opened to increase air exchange. Fire doors must not be wedged open.
Physical distancing 1 m distancing will remain in place in teaching areas and where a local risk assessment prescribes it. Although not mandatory, it is sensible to encourage suitable physical distancing as far as reasonably practicable in all areas.
Maximum occupancy and booking system Some shared areas might still be subject to restriction on maximum occupancy because of ventilation capacity or distancing requirements. If needed, this could lead to implementing a booking system.
Lifts Depending on the size of lift, restriction on number of occupants may apply.
Face covering In University premises, a face covering is required for everyone when circulating, working in offices and other workplace settings where one metre distancing is not possible, and for students in study spaces and all face-to-face teaching activities. It remains good practice to wear a face covering in shared areas at all times. There might also be specific requirement regarding wearing face coverings for specific activities or in specific areas, subject to a local risk assessment.
Assessing risks The UofG Covid-19 risk assessment can be found in https://www.gla.ac.uk/myglasgow/seps/sepscovid-19resourcecentre/. It must be supplemented with local risk assessments to ensure mitigation measures are relevant to the risks related to the activities being planned.
Hybrid working Where feasible, individuals should plan a phased return to office work on campus with 1 day per week in September and 2 days per week in October. It might be relevant to support a phased return with controlled occupancy levels in shared office spaces.
IT requirement For people adopting hybrid working, IT requirements might have changed and should be reviewed by their line manager.
Recording suites Where available, you should highlight to staff the availability of any local recording suites or blended learning facilities.
Access to study and online learning spaces Space for live online content and private study, etc, can be booked on the UofG Life App.
Covid-19 induction Everybody coming on campus must have completed the UofG online Moodle Covid-19 induction, and local Covid-19 induction where relevant.
