Staff Training Programme
All employees are given Health & Safety Training to ensure the safety of themselves, other employees and workers and the general public. All training is documented should evidence of our training be required. Once employees have settled with the Company, they are offered opportunities to increase their skills in other areas to encourage promotion to Supervisor or other trade skills. All team learn from eachother on site, hence why many of our team are multiskilled and able to carry out a variety of duties to a high standard.
All new employees will be given a Company Introduction followed by a Health & Safety Induction, Company Manuals and PPE will also be issued.
Continuing Professional Development
Working with local authorities and our membership bodies, where available we attend several events over the year to keep up to date in areas such as Building Regulations and new innovations in construction.
Construction Skills Training Plan
For the past 5 + years we have been running a Training Plan with Construction Skills (formerly CITB), we are able to receive funding towards training specified in our annual plan. This has unfortunately suffered sever cut backs recently, however we endeavour to still deliver a top class training programme to our team.
