Calculating safe capacity with social distancing online training course

The SGSA has developed an online training course Calculating Safe Capacity with Social Distancing. This one-day course will develop your understanding of the calculation of safe capacities using the social/physical distancing guidance, as set out in SG02: Planning for Social Distancing at Sports Grounds.

As well as an overview of the key principles of safe capacities you will have the opportunity to practice calculations of COVID-19 capacities under the tutelage of the author of SG02, and SGSA’s Head of Inspectorate, Ken Scott, supported by SGSA colleagues.
