We have invested a great deal in our workforce over the past few years. In 2010 we achieved the coveted Investors In People Award and as part of that journey we developed training plans and forecasts along with allocating a training budget as part of our business plan.
As a minimum all of our operatives hold the Construction Skills Certification Scheme card or CSCS card. This shows that the holder is considered competent on his/her job.
In order to operate on Construction sites and to be able to carry out decorations in a variety of circumstances many of our operatives also hold PASMA and IPAF. These qualifications enable our operatives to construct and use mobile scaffold towers and Mobile elevated work platforms safely.
All of our Supervisors have completed a 2 day Site Safety Supervisors Training Scheme course or SSSTS. Some of our clients stipulate this as a rule before we can work on site with them. We have also provided opportunity for some of our decorators to complete this course as part of their continued improvement and training. After all the better trained our team are, the better able they are to complete work of the highest standard in a safe and effective way.
In the past 5 years we have taken on 5 apprentices. 4 of them continue to be a part of our team and two have progressed to become site supervisors within the company. We are proud of our record with regards to developing young people into great decorators and of the way we continue to offer them opportunities to progress develop within the company.
In addition to the above we also provide appropriate Emergency first aid at work training to ensure we have appropriate numbers within the company who hold that qualification.
