Successful reopening of facility and delegate feedback
This week we have successfully reopened our training centre running both facility and online courses, including CompEx Refresher, Shell UK Electrical Safety Rules and Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.
Our delegates have shown great attitude towards our social distancing measures and were highly satisfied with the level of safety at our training facility.
Here's what they had to say:
I thought the facilities were set out excellently and I was very impressed at the measures EPIT have went to ensure the safety of everyone in the building. That was my third time using EPIT and every time the lecturers have been great.
I was very impressed with the precautions taken by EPIT with regards COVID-19. The instructors were very fastidious about social distancing and other covid controls. The socially distanced break/lunch worked very well too. very impressed.
The social distancing measures that have been put in place with regard to coronavirus are excellent. The reception has a separation screen. On arrival they took my temperature and issued a face mask. There was hand sanitiser stations throughout the building. The floor had been marked with tape regarding separation. In the meeting area and classrooms the tables had been separated and it was only one person per table. Clearly EPIT have done everything possible for the safety of staff and trainees.
I should have mentioned in my feedback yesterday how patient and professional the staff at EPIT were with regard to social distancing. There were numerous hand sanitizers around and we were encouraged and reminded to make use of them. Class size numbers had also been limited.
It was obvious time had been taken to perform a risk assessment and the relevant controls identified and put in place to limit the risks of COVID-19 transmission.
EPIT management and staff should be commended for the actions they have taken to get training started again.
I think that EPIT has clearly put a lot of thought into the Social Distancing rules and have clearly taken it seriously. The only time I ever came within 2 meters of anyone was when I got my temperature taken and even then both parties were wearing masks and the temperature taker was also wearing a visor. Each person being allocated a table at break was an intelligent move, and asking them to wipe down the tables was clever too.
The only time you could share facilities was whilst using the toilets and asking users to sanitise their hands before and after entering the facilities was also a clever move.
I have nothing but praise for the Social Distancing measures you implemented making it as safe as possible.
May I also add that the quality of the sandwiches at lunchtime was excellent.
The safety measures implemented for the course were well laid out and explained making it an environment that felt safe to work/study in.
I have already spoken with Michal this morning, and the feedback I received from him was that he was very impressed with the safety measures implemented in line with recommendations for Coronavirus.
Obviously its always a bit of a worry for employees during the COVID-19 pandemic to attend a training course, however he was immediately put at ease.
He stated how impressed he was with the set up and how much thought and consideration had gone into the safety measures. From the taking of temperatures and the lay out was set up for social distancing.
He was also very impressed and made very positive comments about the staff who delivered the training. Even down to the food, was a positive. So all good from us!
The social distancing measures in place at the facility were suitable and did not affect our training in anyway. I would feel comfortable visiting again under the current circumstances.
I found the safety measures that you had in place, more than adequate, and the training staff observed social distancing measures extremely well.
It was overall a good training experience and I did not feel unsafe at any time.
Course well presented. Instructors gave clear and concise information and explained everything at a level which was easy to understand.
Social measures were adhered to and hygiene standards very high.
Everything was done really well. I was impressed that you were taking people's temperatures before letting them participate in the course. The distancing measures that were in place were also really good.
Thanks for looking after us on the course.
I think the measures EPIT have taken are more than adequate for the current Covid-19 restrictions, considering there were only 4 of us on the course there weren't any issues at all.
I was very impressed with the method in which the CompEx refresher course was provided to achieve the course objectives, while also managing to adhere to the Covid-19 guidance on social distancing measures, hygiene standards etc.
There were ample sanitiser stations throughout the building, face masks provided and all floors marked out in order to maintain the 2m social distancing requirements.
I attended the CompEx refresher course at EPIT, Blackburn 5 years ago and feel that the restrictions in place this week did not affect the quality of training given than from my previous time at EPIT.
I would highly recommend EPIT to all colleagues and friends as all staff there provide a very friendly and professional environment.
CompEx Refresher well presented. Friendly staff, and well planned and executed social distancing measures. Definitely a training centre I would recommend and use again.
