Training for success
We achieved another industry sector first, winning CITB support for a Team Reprotec-led Measurable Management Programmme.
Our dedication to helping staff grow and develop in their roles continued throughout 2016; our Sales and Contracts Manager, Elliott Lindsay (pictured left with John Holmes), completed his NVQ Level 6 Contracts Management as part of the CITB Pilot Scheme. In addition, our Assistant Sales and Contracts Manager, Lee Cox, completed the CITB Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS).
Operational Team member, Jamie Jackson completed his mature apprenticeship as a Resin Floorlayer and two more apprentices enrolled onto the FeRFA/CITB scheme.
Environmental sustainability is important to us and is an integral part of our ethos; our ‘Green Theme’ policy and principles enable us to facilitate, manage and trace all our recycled waste. We are proud to be the first company in our Industry to achieve 100% Saving of Waste going to Landfill.
We gained further registration approval with CHAS (Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme), the nationally recognised health and safety pre-qualification system.
We also regained our approval status for Safe Contractor and Constructionline demonstrating our commitment to robust health and safety legislation and practices.
Additionally, all our Operational Team members achieved their EMSS (Essential Minimum Safety Standard) Safety Passports, evidence of an audited and approved level of knowledge, skill and ability to work in highly hazardous environments.
