Coronavirus (Covid 19): Message for BSG Members

BSG is taking all necessary steps to ensure the wellbeing of employees and the continued support of our members, so that we can safeguard business critical operations. We are therefore now asking members to please notify us if they would like an inspection to take place. This will help us to manage visits more effectively as well as better protect our advisers and the people they meet with. Please note however, that only site visits which are deemed ‘essential’ will be considered. In addition, we will only visit sites that strictly adhere to the Covid 19 guidance we have issued to members via the BSG Hub which include the Site Operating Procedures document and Coronavirus Risk Assessment.

If you would like us to make arrangements for an ‘essential’ site visit or would like technical support, please contact the appropriate BSG Regional Manager below;

  • North, Midlands & North Wales: Mick Byrne – 07768 826285
  • Bristol & South Wales: David Dursley – 07712 793776
  • London & South East: Andy Harper – 07824 492781
  • South West and Central South: Chris May –  07712 792944 

Office enquires can be directed to the following email addresses:

Arrangements have been for our main switch board no. 0300 304 9070 to be redirected so that we can still take your call. All training courses however have been cancelled in line with Government advice. If the current situation changes, we will of course notify all members immediately about any implications.

Otherwise, we would encourage you to continue visiting the BSG Hub on our website, which is being regularly updated with the latest information and advice relevant to the coronavirus.

Message from BSG Training

As you are aware; the UK Government and the NHS have been providing the public with regular advice and updates regarding the evolving situation around COVID-19.  As a result of the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday 23 March; all training and testing which is classroom based has been suspended until further notice. As such BSG have taken the decision to suspend all face-to-face training. For courses that are partway through, we have suspended these and we will reschedule the remaining training when the suspension is lifted.

All delegates that have booked onto courses and are waiting for them start, will be given a credit and we will reschedule as soon as we are able.We will be reviewing the situation on a regular basis and as Government advice changes will communicate any changes to the suspensions. We are currently working with CITB to deliver some training remotely and are working on solutions to minimise the impact of this current situation on industry. For important updates regarding COVID-19, we ask that you continue to review our urgent messages page on the BSG website’s home page and please also refer to the BSG Hub
