Due to COVID-19, the edict from PM is that gatherings will not be allowed for the next few weeks and we must all play our part. At GSS Training we have decided to cease, from today Tuesday 23rd March 2020, all our open in-house courses for a period of two months to ensure we comply with the effort to stop the spread of this awful virus. This is in line with advice from CCNSG, Qualsafe, SPA, MPQC, IOSH and many of the bodies whose qualifications we train in. We cannot in good conscience have people gathering in numbers for the next two months on training courses.
We apologise if you have already booked on a GSS Training course for April and May, we have a reputation for never cancelling courses, but I’m sure you understand we are in a global pandemic. We will of course transfer you free of charge onto a June and beyond course with us when we start our in-house courses again in June, please ring us and let us know. Dates are also on our website
FOR THOSE WHO ARE WORRIED ABOUT YOUR SAFETY PASSPORTS RUNNING OUT PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING! DUE TO THE EXTRAORDINARY TIMES WE ARE IN:
- If you have a CCNSG Safety Passport, CCNSG have added an EXTRA 3 months onto the 3 month grace period after your expiry date. So you have 6 MONTHS AFTER the expiry date on your card to get it renewed now.
- If you have an MPQC Quarry Passport, MPQC have ADDED a 3 month grace period after your expiry date. So you have 3 MONTHS AFTER the expiry date on your card now to get it renewed.
- If you have an SPA Petrol Passport, SPA have ADDED a 3 month grace period after your expiry date. So you have 3 MONTHS AFTER the expiry date on your card now to get it renewed.
- If you have an SPA Food Passport, don’t forget you already have a a 3 month grace period after your expiry date as part of the scheme.
We at GSS Training believe our Health and Safety training in Construction, Quarries, Petrol, Food and many other industries is vital. But NOTHING is as vital as the health of our delegates, our staff, their loved ones and the country.
Make no mistake, GSS Training will still be going strong delivering online courses which can be purchased from our website www.gsstraining.co.uk. So why not continue your training while sat at home as we defeat this virus? We are also open for any phone calls, emails and advice we can give, so please contact us for future bookings or information.
In two months, we will then continue our open courses and they will be on our website for you to book on while we are going through this period that will be stressful for all.
Finally, can we wish you all the best for the next few weeks and please keep yourself safe during this time. We look forward to seeing you after we have “sent this virus packing” in the words of the Prime Minister.
All at GSS Training.
