In line with Envirocare’s commitment to continuous overall improvement, training is taken very seriously and Dave, Envirocare MD feels office staff are no exception. “We already have three members of staff trained to IOSH (Institute of Occupational Safety and Health) standard and this knowledge and skill supports our Health and Safety Management system. Now Angela has completed the IOSH course she has continued straight onto the NEBOSH certificate (National Examination Board of Occupational Safety and Health), this will provide us with a higher level of in-house Health and Safety expertise.” Angela commented “my job role is evolving into the Health and Safety side, supporting our Health and Safety Manager and keeping a careful eye on the processes and procedures of the Health and Safety Management system. The opportunity to complete the training has been great for me, going back to the classroom and learning something new is a very positive experience.”
Angela’s not the only one who has experienced success in the classroom. The Finance team last week celebrated Luke’s achievement when he passed his AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) level 4 qualification. Jan, Head of Finance praised Luke “fulltime work and study are not always easy to balance when you’re young, Luke has done really well and we’ll support him to continue his professional/personal development”
The coming months will see a real drive in terms of training at Envirocare. CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) revision material is on order as all frontline staff will undertake the test which aims to improve quality and reduce accidents. Two days of Emergency First Aid at Work training will take place next week with 24 delegate places available. Mandatory Manual Lifting and Handling will follow with the aim to have all staff certificated and ready to go for the start of the season.
