Survivex in Aberdeen and AIS Training in Newcastle, part of 3T Energy Group, have introduced a number of coronavirus measures including on-site antibody tests, temperature checks and a reduction in capacity to allow for safe reopening.

The group trains more than 100,000 people every year in energy sector health and safety and best practice.

The firm said it had also invested in technology at its training centres to allow for physical distancing with “state-of-the-art” video technology and tablet use now in place in every relevant location.

Kevin Franklin, chief executive of 3T Energy Group, said: “We would categorically not be reopening if we could not provide a safe environment.

“We are the number one training provider for a reason and our dedication to safety on site is second to none – the measures we have put in place are testament to that. These precautions are the new normal.”
