Working Safe and Sound Ltd & Wessex Safety Services LLP
Standard terms and conditions for supply of training services
During the continuance of the Agreement into which this document is incorporated (the 'Agreement'), Working Safe and Sound Ltd (WSS) shall supply and the Purchaser shall purchase subject to these WSS Training Supply Terms. Definitions in the Agreement (which Agreement includes any schedule and/or any appendix thereto) shall also apply in these WSS Training Supply Terms. In the event of any conflict between these WSS Training Supply Terms and the terms of the Agreement, the terms of the Agreement shall take precedence.\
1. WSS Supplies, Specifications and related Prices
The Services, the Specifications, and the related Prices are set out in the quotation/Agreement and/or its Schedules (the 'Schedules').
2.1. No terms or conditions endorsed on a Purchaser's order, specification, or similar document will form part of the contract between the parties. By placing an order, the Purchaser acknowledges the applicability of the WSS Training Supply Terms.
2.2. WSS and the Purchaser shall agree times and places for the performance of Services which shall generally be set out in the relevant Schedule and/or Appendix. Otherwise, WSS shall use its reasonable endeavours to perform them within a reasonable time in the circumstances.
2.3. Failure to notify of any delay shall not on its own entitle the Purchaser to terminate the contract or withhold payment against WSS's invoice. Unless otherwise agreed in writing with WSS, the Purchaser shall not be entitled to cancel any order for Services once the first performance of the Services has been performed by WSS.
2.4. Purchasers may be asked to make payment in advance for Services against WSS’s pro-forma invoice or provide a suitable credit reference or such other proof of creditworthiness as WSS LLP may require at its sole discretion before supply.
3. Eligibility for and Outcome of Training Courses
3.1. It is the Purchaser's (employer's) responsibility to ensure that students are free from any condition which would affect their capability to undertake their chosen course, and that they have the aptitude to cope with an intensive course of study. WSS welcomes students with disabilities but it remains their employer's responsibility to ensure that they are appropriately supported in their workplace. WSS should be provided in advance (and for setting up purposes) notification of any assistance that a student is likely to need during the running of a course. If WSS decides that a student has not achieved the learning outcomes of the course and/or the assessment standard (ie. they are referred), then they will subsequently be offered a free reassessment. Any further training or coaching over and above that provided on the course may be charged for.
3.2. The Purchaser (the employer) acknowledges that if a Student arrives late for a course or is absent from any session, WSS reserves the right to refuse to accept the Student for training, if it decides in its sole discretion that the student will gain insufficient knowledge or skill in the time remaining. In all such cases, the full course fee remains payable. To conform with Health & Safety Executive (HSE) requirements/IOSH/NEBOSH and TUK/QA certificates, attendance at all sessions is mandatory.
4. Terms of Payment
Unless subject to separate agreed arrangements, the Purchaser shall pay WSS within 30 days of the date of WSS's invoice. If the Purchaser fails to make payment on the due date, WSS shall be entitled to charge the Purchaser interest at the annual rate of 3% above the base rate of Lloyds Bank plc. Unless otherwise agreed with WSS or required by law, the Purchaser shall not be entitled to make any set off in respect of amounts due to WSS. All course fees are subject to the current rate of VAT (valid exemptions only).
Each party acknowledges and agrees that any and all information concerning the other's business or the terms of the Agreement including these WSS LLP Supply Terms is confidential (hereinafter referred to as 'Confidential Information') and each party agrees that it shall not permit the duplication, use or disclosure of any such Confidential Information to any person (other than its own employee, agent or sub-contractor where the same requires such information for the performance of the Agreement) unless such duplication, use or disclosure is specifically authorised in writing by the other party, or is required by the operation of Law. Confidential Information does not include information, which at the time of disclosure is generally known by the public (other than by the unauthorised act of the disclosing party).

7.2. Each party agrees to indemnify the other against any actions, costs, liabilities, losses, damages and expenses which the other may suffer or incur as a result of any claim by a third party in relation to ownership or use of any relevant intellectual property, provided by the other party.

13. Freedom of Information
Where the Purchaser is a Public Authority as defined in the Freedom of Information Act 2000 ('the FOIA') it agrees to notify WSS immediately if it receives any FOIA request for information regarding WSS or its business, and it agrees to consult with WSS regarding the application of any exemptions under the FOIA in relation to such request.
