Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
Last updated: 10th June 2020
We are advising that all clients and members of the public look to the latest information from the UK Government on the outbreak. You can find information on the virus, the developing situation in regards to risk, and the ‘stay at home’ guidance from the following links:
To support companies working within the construction and service industries, SAMS are offering heavily discounted rates for companies or individuals seeking pre-accreditation under the terms of CHAS, Safe Contractor, SMAS, etc.
For as little as £300 we will review your current safety systems and submit them for audit. If you do not have a safety system, but would like to gain the above pre-accreditations, please contact us on 01843 821406 and we will be happy to advise.
We are happy to perform this and any other consultancy work remotely via e-mail, phone, Zoom or Skype. Get in touch to discuss your unique requirements, and we will do our utmost to help you through this challenging period. We’re protecting your future – today.
Our e-Learning and Video e-Learning courses will be available regardless of the effects of the coronavirus, and have substantial crossover with our Classroom training options. This may be a good opportunity to provide training for employees during periods of remote working, with a range of traditional e-Learning and Video e-Learning courses providing respected and valuable qualifications.
Any businesses required to operate from their premises should get in touch as a matter of urgency, to ensure that they are fully mitigating the risks of COVID-19.
Advice for clients
While SAMS is now closed to visitors, we are still able to support businesses with the demands of COVID-19. We have experience in drafting and implementing infection controls and home working arrangements, and will be happy to assist in your response to the virus.
As of 24/03/20, the countrywide lockdown means we are no longer able to hold face-to-face training either at SAMS or elsewhere. However, we are still able to offer e-Learning, Distant Learning (via Zoom) and Consultancy Services.
If your business is undertaking essential work or you are concerned about your health & safety liabilities for people working from home, don’t hesitate to get in touch via our Contact Page.
