3T Energy Group updates industry on reopening progress
The UK Energy Sector is receiving a significant boost this week with the reopening of the UK’s biggest training provider to the sector, after enforced closure due to the Coronavirus lockdown announced by the UK Government on 23rd March.
3T Energy Group trains more than 100,000 delegates every year in energy sector health and safety and best practice. After extensive consultation with its clients it has reopened its two world-renowned training centres today: Survivex, based in Europe’s oil capital Aberdeen, and AIS Training, in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
Ahead of the reopening 3T carried out full, detailed Risk Assessments at both facilities, leading to even more stringent measures ensuring the safety of everyone on site. 3T has decided to operate at around 20% capacity initially to allow for a safe environment.
3T will be adapting to the ‘new normal’ at both sites by introducing a raft of Covid-19 safety measures, including:
● Temperature checks for all visitors and staff
● Medical questionnaires for customers & staff
● Medical checks for all staff
● Person in Charge of Coronavirus safety
● Daily protocol reviews led by the 3T Energy Group board
● Reconfigured classrooms to allow for social distancing
● Safe haven area should any person on site display Covid-19 symptoms
● Personal desks, paper, and pens for customer use
● Deep cleans of facilities and additional PPE
● Reinduction of staff with 3T’s safe operating measures
3T Group has also invested in technology at its training centres to allow for social distancing – state-of-the-art video technology and tablet use are now in place in every relevant location. The company has also been using the downtime caused by Covid-19 to develop world-first technology-driven training techniques for launch to the market in the near future, parts of which will be rolled into its training centres immediately.
