United Kingdom Scaffolding Training
United Kingdom Scaffolding Training Reopens
United Kingdom Scaffolding training is now officially underway at over 18 locations around the UK, including Birmingham, with more to follow suit in the coming weeks. Providers are showing real resilience after swiftly adapting to overcome the government restrictions as we come out of Lockdown.
CISRS has been working tirelessly with the training providers throughout the United Kingdom lockdown period to get them back open and COVID ready. However, before reopening, CISRS has said that all centres were required to submit a detailed risk assessment and method statements with supporting documentation and photographic evidence showing restrictions and precautions put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, whilst delivering training.
Covering each step of the Training experience
‘Training Providers’ has to cover each step of the training experience from arriving at the centre, moving around the site, getting to the classrooms, practical training areas, welfare facilities and getting back home safely. Although, the reduced capacity restriction is starting to cause a strain for a number of training providers.
Ricki Grenfell also said: “The Coronavirus pandemic has hit the whole industry hard; scaffolders, employers, and clients as well, are still looking at an uncertain future. However, the sector has responded very positively and looked for ways to move forward in a safe and productive manner.”
Slowly Taking Bookings
Training centres that are currently open are initially dealing with courses which were cancelled due to the Lockdown, but they are also taking some new bookings.
