GPL’S Health and Safety Seminar welcomed its Subcontractors on 19th October 2018. The aim of this years gathering was to highlight not only the individuals responsibilities for H&S, but for those working around them.
Colin wright MD of Britannia Health + Safety training Ltd delivered the seminar. He discussed topics such as Responsibilities of the Main Contractor, Sub-Contractors and their Employees, Permits to Work, Sentencing Guidelines, HSE- Fees for Intervention and Mental Health. Colin also covered Equipment Inspections including a practical forklift session, Current Legislation, Asbestos Awareness, Training and Qualifications and GDPR. A practical session with the delegates was carried out where they completed a Risk Assessment and Method Statement.
In the afternoon the delegates completed Manual Handling Training.
Alongside the Health & Safety Seminar other delegates were attending a PASMA / Mobile Tower Course, run by Britannia Safety Training LTD. This is a one day course split into a theory and practical session.
Peter Clift MD of GPL said ‘What a beneficial day we had all round. It was good to see so many of the younger lads showing such enthusiasm and knowledge’.
