At Rail Professional development, the health, safety and wellbeing of every employee, customer and contractor is our priority.

Throughout this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have taken practical steps, and implemented robust measures, to ensure the welfare of our employees, sub-contractors and course delegates.

In line with government, public health and industry guidance, we have already implemented the option of remote training and safe distance training within our training centre, albeit this means not as many may be able to attend, dependant on which rooms are available.

Since the lockdown, all employees and directors have been working remotely under government guidelines. Our services and support for RPD and Assure CMS remains business as usual. Contact can be made via email at  For Assure, this can be done through a normal support ticket. We can now  offer in house meetings and training with the required social distancing in place within our training centre.

Risk assessments are carried out when attending the site to highlight and reinforce, safe working procedures. Whilst on site our cleaning regime has been increased and masks/hand sanitizer is available for every attendee. We also carry out a body heat check on arrival.

We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and will implement any necessary changes based on the advice provided by the government and public health agencies.

We would like to express our thanks to our employees, and to all of our contractors, who are making an enormous contribution in these uncertain times
