Terms and Conditions


Bookings can be made by our website, by telephone or e-mail. Once you have confirmed the booking details with Health and Safety Matters Limited, it is deemed that you accept these Terms and Conditions. Course bookings can be made up to 3 months in advance.
You must inform us at the time of booking of any special requirements or needs of a delegate who will be attending a course booked with us.

Payment for any open course that we show on this website will require payment on booking. All course requests will be classed as provisionally booked until payment has been received. Therefore  if the course has sold out and payment has not been received  we will advise you of the next available course .We do not operate a 30 day payment policy on open courses  and keep our prices as low as possible to meet your training budget. For in-house training, we request payment is immediately after delivery. We will negotiate company rates based on commitment and volume.

Certificates will not be issued until payment has been received and cleared by our accounts. The cost of the certificate is included within the course fee.
Due to the fact that the loss or destruction of a certificate is a serious matter, we can only issue a replacement certificate if we can establish that the applicant has obtained the relevant qualification. There is a fee for replacing certificates the current fee is set at £25 per application.
We will only use the wording for delegate names given to us from the completed delegate list on the day. We are not responsible for incorrect information entered on to the Delegates list on the day of training and any cost incurred due to certificate re-issues will be met by the client.

Health and Safety Matters Limited reserves the right to cancel the dates or alter services and we will give no less than a week’s notice to the client. In the event of a cancellation  by Health and Safety Matters Limited we will  transfer the booking to the next mutually convenient date unless the client states otherwise.

If the booking is cancelled by the client the following fees will be payable.
•    30 days  notice – no charge
•    Less than 30 days  notice – 30% of the cost
•    Less than 21 days notice – 50% of the cost
•    Less than 14  days  notice – 75% of the cost
