COVID-19 Control Measures for Training

Lyon Equipment Limited is continually monitoring UK Government advice in relation to the risk of Coronavirus (Covid-19) infection in the workplace. The safety of our customers, visitors and members of staff remains our priority. In order that we ensure the safety of everyone at our premises we are continuing to implement Covid-19 specific control measures throughout our business including the Work & Rescue Training department. 

There is a comprehensive Risk Assessment for any person attending the Lyon Work & Rescue Training centre a copy of which is available prior to you attending if required. This risk assessment is subject to regular review and change to ensure continued compliance with UK Government guidance now that the remaining domestic restrictions in England have been removed. 

If you are attending a Work & Rescue Training course, we respectfully request that you read and comply with the following control measures and notify us if you have concerns relating to any of these requirements: 

  • Positive Covid-19 test: Government advice is to remain at home and avoid contact with other people if you test positive. Please do not attend Lyon if you have had a positive test and are within the recommended isolation and testing period outlined on the Government website
  • Please do not attend in person if you are unwell with symptoms of Covid-19
  • You must notify us immediately if you become unwell with Covid-19 symptoms during your time on our premises – we may ask you to leave and return at a later mutually convenient date
  • We request that if you test positive for Covid-19 within 48 hours after your training course here at Lyon, that you inform us
  • We will continue to facilitate appropriate social distancing and to mitigate risk to trainees throughout our premises
  • We have made widely available hand sanitising gel throughout our business and request that current advice is followed in relation to the importance of hand washing followed by use of hand sanitiser to mitigate the spread of infectious agents
  • We continue to require the wearing of facemasks by all persons on our premises, our staff will advise on this requirement during your time at Lyon. If you are unable or unwilling to wear a facemask then we will offer you alternative dates for training when a relaxation of our control measures becomes possible
  • If you are attending a work at height course the Personal Fall Protection Equipment issued to you will have been quarantined for 72 hours and/or disinfected prior to issue – you will not be required to share this equipment
  • You will be provided with training materials such as paperwork, course manuals, note pads and pens for your sole use – there will be no requirement to share resources
  • Food will be provided during your course as an individual packed meal
  • Refreshments will be available, and you will be provided with your own drinking vessel(s) for the duration of the course 

We acknowledge that UK Government legal requirements in respect of the control of Covid-19 have now been removed.  At Lyon we will continue to implement appropriate control measures that follow Government ‘Working Safely’ guidance to businesses, these are intended to help mitigate ongoing Covid-19 infection risks to all our customers, visitors, and staff. Inevitably these will cause some delay and inconvenience, however we ask for your continued understanding and acceptance that these measures are appropriate for the protection of everyone. 

We thank you in advance for your consideration and look forward to welcoming you to Lyon Equipment Limited.
