Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
Last updated: 14th October 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, and the developing situation from the following links:
A number of our classroom courses have now recommenced with social distancing measures in place. Class sizes will be reduced to a maximum of 6 people for the foreseeable future, making each class seven people with an instructor. This does not break the ‘rule of six’ as training providers are exempt under the latest guidelines.
We have taken all possible measures to ensure that our training room is COVID secure and helps you to feel safe and comfortable. This includes the use of a brand new furniture setup with minimum 1m distancing, screens, masks and regular cleaning (click images to expand).
In response to the pandemic, SAMS has completely overhauled our current course offerings. The majority of courses can now be delivered via Zoom. Our Zoom courses are designed to maximise participation, delivering exercises and talks that will help to engage learners in a home working environment.
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. 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.
