Market COVID Management Plan (13.08.21)

Preamble

Art and Craft on the Coast is a business that feels strongly about its community responsibilities to both the public and its stallholders.
In this COVID 19 environment we feel the need for a consistent safe health guided and focused plan for the operation and continuation of the markets though the current pandemic period. We have developed this living plan to navigate the safe operation of the markets in this time. This plan and subsequent Market Covid safe policy’s draw on the best information at hand from, Workcover QLD, The Queensland Government, QLD Health, WorkSafe Australia, AHPPC, Gold Coast Health and the City of Gold Coast. While this plan is current at each update the COVID 19 outbreak is evolving and it (the plan) will be updated as information, restrictions and science changes in this novel viral outbreak. We believe in maintaining best practice principles for all health and safety and to trade within when eased restrictions are maintained enough for open permitted trade (outside mandatory lockdown periods).

The operation of The Markets is a vital component of the local economy, community and tourism sector. As such we see that the continuation of the markets in this time as very important for both its economic and social benefit. It is crucial to operate and implement with uniformity with all market participants though good policy for the safety, reputation and continuity of the markets.

Stage 1

  • Maintain the COVID-19 Safe Operations plan (management) and policy (for stallholders) developed (by Management) and regularly submitted to GCCC and GC Health. Both the managers and the stallholders of the markets are bound to the policy. The policy outlines the extra workplace processes required to operate safely and with the absolute minimum chance of community or person to person spread of COVID 19 within the context of existing WHS policy and management plans. Areas of interest within this policy focus and refer to improved hygiene measures, social distancing and clear communication of measures taken (by Management) and to be taken by Stallholders and customers to reduce the spread of COVID 19.
  • The new QLD Recurrent Market checklist specification (revoking previous COVID safe Industry plans, COVID safe event checklists and QLD health directives), requires management and Stallholders to maintain PPE, wearing of masks (when required under increased restrictions), QR check in and further any further measures from businesses that are classified under the restricted business types listed in Restricted Business and Undertaking’s directions. As this is a live document, reviews will be amalgamated with our existing Plan in Market COVID Management Plan. It is recommended when health directions change to regularly check back to the website and update to the new plans when they are updated and uploadedhttp://artandcraft.com.au/stall-holder-information/
  • We will continue to consult with the City to deliver our COVID plan and markets safely. Any futurerequested recommendations will be well considered and added to future versions of the plan.
  • Communication of the policy, work WHS processes and equipment/PPE required of all Stakeholderparticipants will be regular and consistent with updates to the plan when made.
  • Maintain the required PPE, hygiene, and informational equipment required as to the business’s individual Market COVID safe plan and policy so that the markets operations can run safely and ontime.
  • Communicate to staff enhanced Workplace Health and Safety requirements and provide trainingfor COVID 19 compliance were necessary.
  • Complete all mandatory Work safe Australia WHS checklists

 

Stage 2

  • Market/advertise the COVID save policies and health directives required to attend The Markets to a local and drive audience. (generally, with an effective radius of the state of QLD) and stallholders though the below channels.
    • ATDW
    • Website
    • Local Radio
    • Tourism GC
    • Chambers
    • Local event listing
    • Stallholder newsletters and booking communications
    • Social media posts and comment monitoring
  • Monitor implementation of new policy edits and plan details to ensure a smooth, consistent and safe workplace consistent with the continuation of safely running a Market.
  • Re adjust Market layouts to enable safe social distancing between stallholders and the attending public. These new layouts will reduce site numbers (see below for details) by maintaining increased spacing between each site (where practical minimum 1.5 metres apart) This fundamentally changes layouts and has changed permanent stallholder positions. Rows have also been widened to enable social distancing for and from the attending public. Measures include increasing the distance from the main Ocean way paths to a minimum of 2 metres from the path
  • Liaise with Local Police re COVID safe planning (were required) and incident liaison in the event of social distancing, mask and border crossing complaints. The Markets continue to exercise the workplace policy that we are not Compliance officers and the enforcement (by Law) of directions and mandatory health directives is the responsibility of the appropriate
  • compliance officers.

Stage 3

  • Monitor adherence to the extra requirements of the COVID Safe policy of all Stallholders.
  • Review all the workings of (the markets’) policy and its implementation.
  • Adapt and change where required
  • Respond to Stakeholder concerns and reviews of policy and licence to operate.
  • Review every month after recommencement of markets and at each QLD easing or tightening of restrictions stages.
  • Monitor border closures and adapt stallholder booking protocols if Northern NSW Stallholders are unable to attend

Due to the changes in the area rules for people under various ‘Restrictions on Businesses, Activities and Undertakings Directions and QLD Covid 19 Roadmaps. The limit of persons on site is interchangeable from unlimited to 1 per 4 square metres or 1 per 2 Square metres’’ All calculations of the number of persons allowed on site are large enough so it is in our opinion that these numbers would ordinarily never be exceeded under normal market conditions. While we will continue to monitor social distancing floor area calculations no physical monitoring is available in an unrestricted, unfenced park. City of Gold Coast could if required monitor individual IMAP pings though its free 5G network if restrictions were to ever be increased on the below calculations.

Please see map attachments below

These totals would never be achieved at any one time at any site under normal market conditions

Hygiene and Social Distancing

 

All Participants

  • Use the www.covid19.qld.gov.au Voluntary ‘’COVID Safe checklist for Restricted Business checklist’’ to see if your retail product has restrictions that require an industry specific COVID Safe plan. Checklist and relevant info can be found at https://www.covid19.qld.gov.au/government-actions/covid-safe-checklist-for-restricted-businesses
  • Remain at home/get tested if suffering any respiratory or flu like symptoms and or fever. Notify Market Management of any contact of positive COVID 19 or positive testing. Cancel booking where sickness or awaiting testing is required
  • All workers to practise good hygiene by frequently cleaning their hands. If hand washing is not practical or available, alcohol-based hand sanitiser containing at least 60% ethanol or 70% iso-propanol is required
  • Stallholders to carry sanitizer always and to make available to customers for either handling of product or where a transaction (money or goods) has taken place.
  • Stallholders not to handle customers reusable bags and to instruct customer to pack their own bag

Straw and napkin dispensers must not be placed in customer areas but be handed to customers on request or as part of the sale.
  • When masks are required under mask directives always use your mask while at the market unless you are performing an exempt activity.

Please remember we operate a Sustainable Packaging and Waste Policy, and this must still be adhered too where possible (details can be found at our website).

http://artandcraft.com.au/stall-holder-information/#1549846515920-9e0e576b-ed74

  • Due to the potential person to person contact risks at the markets it is highly recommended that all participants/stakeholders of the markets download the COVID Safe app to assist in contact tracing if any participants or hotspots are found within or around the markets.
  • Use the QLD QR code check in (located throughout the market or available for download or print from our website for each location)
  • Reduce the sharing of equipment and tools.
    • Provide contactless payment options, ordering and payment online or other payment apps where possible. Minimise the use of cash, cash is the single most dangerous contact point in the operations of the markets so don’t use it if you can.

Customers who bring their own bags must be asked to pack them themselves.

  • Clean frequently touched areas and surfaces at least hourly with detergent or disinfectant (including shared equipment and tools, EFTPOS equipment, tables, counter tops and sinks). Surfaces touched by customers, such as display tables, must also be cleaned regularly.
  • Respiratory hygiene includes coughing into arm or tissue (safely disposing of tissue) then washing hands or if washing is not available use hand sanitiser.
  • Develop your own business COVID Safe management plan to include measures to facilitate social distancing, hygiene, WHS and communication for yourself, staff and customers.

Management

Management will supply hand sanitiser stations within the markets at the entrances, the onsite office and near the takeaway food stall areas dependant on accessibility and site layout. This hand sanitizer is for the attending public and not for Stallholders to use as their solution to hygiene (stallholders must bring their own for you, your staff and your customers-if they request it and as per your product handling policy.

  • At least 3 x automatic/push action hand sanitizer dispensers placed on easy to see and use stands/stations.
  • Extra Hand Sanitiser pump bottles will be placed on each A frame COVID safe informational sign
  • Monitor, clean and refill, sanitizer stations
  • Provide hand sanitizer, gloves and PPE to all market staff
  • Re-adjust Market layouts to better enable safe social distancing between stallholders and the attending public (see minimum measurements as above).
  • Add additional Mask required signage to the informational A frames and signage when Mask mandates are current and in effect

These new layouts will fundamentally change layouts and may change permanent stallholder positions. You must follow the new site positioning and may not be able to take your old spot back. We will work with stallholders individually however no new permanent positions can be locked in and may be revoked within the first three months-if required to maintain COVID safety or compliance. We will try to minimise any changes in the first instance.

  • Improved surveillance and monitoring of City cleaning and City assets (i.e. toilets park benches and water stations
    • Better communication with City Cleaning
    • Onsite monitoring of groups and areas where social distancing appears to be a challenge.
  • Clean park assets (Environmental Cleaning) where appropriate (with permission of City of Gold Coast and site-specific audits).
  • Environmental cleaning – Clean frequently touched areas and surfaces. Park surfaces touched by customers, such as park tables chairs and taps, must also be cleaned regularly at least once a day (as per Safe work Australia guidelines) with detergent or disinfectant
  • Clean market office (including shared equipment and tools, EFTPOS equipment, tables, counter tops and sinks).

Social Distancing

Management

  • Place signage at entry points instructing customers not to enter the Markets if they are unwell or have COVID19 symptoms. The signs state that businesses have the right to refuse service and must insist that anyone with these symptoms leaves the stall and the market area, that social distancing and extra hygiene precautions should be used within the market area.
  • Management will monitor (and move on where required) the shared spaces of the markets and limit gathering of people (where social distancing is not maintained or where restricted group capacities is mandated) of no more than the allowed number as based on the permissible number at the time as restrictions require. Management has multiple ways to communicate social distancing to attendees though staff onsite, loud halers and PA equipment (when restrictions allow music at the Market

All Stallholders

  • Limit client interactions at the stall through the use of adjusted layout to reduce overcrowding and congestion within markets the stall (remember 1.5 meters spacing does not allow for many people from different households to be in the marquee at one time). Front counter only is recommended to keep a safe distance from you and your customers. If you are going to still have customers in your stall please allow for signage for how many are permitted at any one time and actively discourage persons not following your guidelines. Please bring an extra tent/marquee for the back of your stall if any customers need to enter your stall space and to increase the space between you and the customer when conducing transactions-some sites may continue to not have rear room i.e. Burleigh road side, please let us know if you are planning to do this so we can manage this in the layouts).
    • Place signs at entry point to instruct customers not to enter the stall if they are unwell or have COVID19 symptoms. The sign should state that businesses have the right to refuse service and must insist that anyone with these symptoms leaves the stall. Signage should also ensure customers practice social distancing by placing informational signage either floor or wall markings or signs to identify 1.5 metres distance requirements and if there is a direction of flow design to your stall.
    • Signage to indicate touching only products that they
    • Social distancing stall spacing is for social distancing NOT EXTRA product displays, management will ask you to remove items, tables, racks if they are placed outside your markings.
    • Stallholder A frame boards must be within site markings and not placed in the middle of rows, middle of site spacing or adjacent (in front) of neighbour’s sites. If you are not sure leave it in your site and ask management.
    • If practicable set up separate exit and entry points and separate order and collection points to minimise contact between persons for queues and waiting areas.
    • Consider using physical barriers where practical, such as plexiglass, barriers around counters involving high volume interactions with customers or where required by law (i.e. Take away food handling areas)
    • Remove waiting area seating or space seating at least 1.5 metres apart.
    • Provide contactless payment options, ordering and payment online or other payment apps where possible. Minimise the use of cash, cash is the single most dangerous contact point in the operations of the markets so don’t use it if you can.
    • Set up different areas for ordering and collection, and where practical, separate entry and exit paths.
    • Stagger viewing times and manage the duration of browsing to control the flow of customers.

With consideration of state laws regarding the use of single-use plastic bags, the new single-use plastics ban, and the City of Gold Coast’s policies on event waste and collection, the Markets have transitioned into this new policy from September 1st, 2021

All Stallholders

 All stalls are required to leave their site clean as they found it as per existing market rules and Regulation’s policy.

In addition, you are required to take any waste home (or to a suitable offsite recycling station) that is generated by the conducting of business by a market stall (this means any commercial or personal waste generated by you during the course of business activities within the park)

This includes all boxes, bags, and coat hangers, craft scraps.

Any broken chairs tents/marquees and equipment must be removed from the site.

Mirrors and glass must also be carefully removed (management informed of the breakage so we can make sure the area is clear of glass fragments) 

  • The on-site council bins are for public non-commercial waste only.
  • All Stallholders found disposing of market stall waste in these bins will be cautioned in the first instance (referred to this policy), then suspended if found reoffending.
  • We do sort these onsite bins and are working with the council to reduce waste and bin overflow to avoid litter and ocean contamination. Your stall sites are marked so please remember to check your site is clean before you leave.
  • Cigarette butts, price tags, and broken zip ties are litter and must be taken with you. (We do check and clean the site at the end of the day and know who has left rubbish, these stalls will be cautioned then suspended as above)
  • Single-use plastic bags are banned as per the Waste Reduction and Recycling Amendment Act 2017

Plastic Bag Ban – QLD | National Retail Association

  • Single-use plastic items are banned as per the Waste Reduction and Recycling (plastic Items) Amendment Act 2021

https://www.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0034/169981/single-use-plastics-ban-factsheet.pdf

Pre-Packaged Food stalls (In addition to the ‘all stallholders’ requirements)

Compostable Biodegradable Plastics must conform to either Australian Standards: AS 4736-2006 or AS 5810-2010

  • Stallholders are required to sell their products in recyclable or compostable containers i.e., glass jars, recyclable plastic containers, or compostable containers or wrapping.
  • All approved single-use food sampling should use compostable or recyclable sampling utensils.

Fresh Produce stalls (In addition to the ‘all stallholders’ requirements)

  • Fresh product stalls are encouraged to offer paper bags for customers to put their produce in rather

than plastic bags (please familiarize yourself with the single-use packaging bag legislation)

  • Plastic netting for fruit and vegetables is no longer allowed. Unless once the customer has chosen their produce, you transfer it into either a paper bag or their own reusable bag and you keep and reuse the netting.  Although plastic netting is made from recyclable plastics it is not accepted in Gold Coast Council recycling bins at this time.

Food for Consumption Stalls (In addition to the ‘all stallholders’ requirements)

  • All Food for Consumption stalls are required to serve food/drink in compostable or reusable products.
  • All Food for Consumption stalls are required to take all production waste home and are at no time to dispose or leave production waste in the market or Council supplied bins.

Product Alternative
Plates, bowls, and clamshells Sugarcane based with no plastic lining
Cups Paper with corn-based lining or Compostable Plastic (corn-based)
Utensils (Plastic now banned) Wooden or Compostable plastic (corn-based) and labeled compostable
Plastic straws (now banned) Paper straws, offer re-useable bamboo or stainless-steel straws for sale

Polystyrene packaging (now banned) Paper, sugarcane, palm leaf

Stallholders are encouraged to offer discounts to customers that reuse their own mugs, plates, and cutlery

Considering the continuing efforts of the nation and the world to turn the tide on the mountains of un biodegradable and plastic waste being generated every day, the changing regulatory environment and environmental best practice all stallholders will be required to minimize product packaging and use compostable packaging as per this policy

This policy is added to your acceptance of terms through your signed Stallholder Agreement.  Any Stallholder that does not wish to comply with this policy may at the written request of the stallholder be terminated as an approved stallholder of the Art and Craft on the Coast Markets

Market Management supports the current position that we cannot continue as business and waste as usual and thank all stallholders in advance for their participation and innovation in reducing waste locally through our business practices for the sake of the planet’s resources and all our future.

The Stallholder Parking Policy 2021 improves and clarifies the Markets Rules and Regulations regarding the re parking of Stallholder vehicles while attending the markets. During 2020 there were a number of parking issues and structural changes identified at all 3 market locations. In response we have conducted a parking review with consultation of stallholders and the City. We have implemented this new policy for all attending Stallholders (including staff of Stallholders) and Market staff. This policy sets out to amend and supersede existing Rules and regulations and by doing so improve loading, unloading and customer attendance at the markets. Also providing enhanced guidelines for fair and equitable access for all stallholders to load equipment at each market location.

 

Extract from existing rules and regulations that all stallholders have already signed and agreed to in their application/permit to attend markets operated by Art and Craft on the Coast.

 

Section 5: Vehicles and Parking

City Parking officers regularly patrol the 3 market areas and if you are breaking the law they will fine you. Being a stallholder does not hold up as an excuse. If you are breaking a law, you are disrespecting the safety of the public and the market community and jeopardising the markets right to trade.   

5.0 No vehicle access to the park is allowed at any time. Unless a permit and approval has been granted by management.

5.1 Non-pre-booked stallholders must park away from the markets when they first arrive and walk in to sign on. You will need to provide your car registration number when you sign on and pay your site fee. DO NOT bring your car to the market adjacent car parks until your site is allocated.

5.2 Car parks adjacent to the markets are for loading and unloading only. In the morning move your vehicle before you have set up. All vehicles must be removed from the car parks adjacent to the market site and re-parked correctly by 8:00am. In the afternoon, no vehicles are allowed back into the car parks adjacent to the markets until your stall and all equipment are packed up. 

5.3 No stallholder vehicles are allowed back into car parks adjacent to the markets until after 1pmat Broadbeach and Coolangatta, 1.30pm at Burleigh (unless temporary special arrangements have been made with management, or there are adverse weather conditions). Those who retrieve their vehicle early must pack and leave promptly at 2pm. If you retrieve your car prior to 1:30pm you must leave the car park by 2:15pm.

5.4 Do not block the road or block visibility of any pedestrian crossings while loading and unloading your vehicle. Do not load or unload your vehicle from the bicycle lane or reverse into angle in car parks (This is illegal under QLD road rules.)  Do not block emergency entrances or park in lifesaver only car spaces. You may only occupy car spaces adjacent to the markets for 30 minutes maximum.
