We are pleased to report on the training successes of our scaffolders, as they continue to excel in their fields and advance to the next phase of their training and development.
Since January 2011, a number of scaffolders have progressed to supervisory positions, as well as having attended the Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) and Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS).
Various levels of experience and training have been achieved from attendance, and completion of the following courses: Scaffolding Advanced, NVQ Level 2 and 3, Scaffolding Basic 1 and 2, Advanced Scaffold Inspection, and Cuplok Product Knowledge.
Our presence on the London Underground network, as a result of our contract on the Paddington Crossrail project, has meant a number of scaffolders have attended as a prerequisite, a Safety & Asbestos Awareness Course, provided by London Underground Limited. Training has also been delivered for personal track safety.
Every employee benefits from their own defined training route from our commitment, and ongoing investment into their development. Currently, our training budget equates to approximately three per cent of annual turnover.
