TRAINING SCHOOL

In order to ensure the correct training levels are implemented the Company has invested in a well-equipped training facility, where employees can be provided with the necessary training programme.

The initial task with regards to new personnel is for the Company to assess an individual’s training requirements and implement the Kirstall Site induction. The Kirstall Induction provides the individual with essential safety knowledge, ie HASWA, COSHH, RIDDOR, Site Safety Awareness, etc. On completion of the induction training then any necessary formal instruction needs will be planned and delivered at the earliest opportunity.

The Training School has been accredited by the ECITB (Engineering Construction Industry Training Board), to deliver internal training for Kirstall employees. The internal training programme modules for Abrasive Wheels, Working at Heights and Confined Space are ratified by the ECITB through the Employer Course Accreditation Scheme (ECAS) and currently serve to highlight Kirstall’s approach to the training needs as stand alone in the Industry. In addition to the afore mentioned training Kirstall also will implement the necessary instruction with regard to Manual Handling, Joint Integrity, Slinging and Signalling.

Training is a key requirement in order to achieve safety objectives and complete contract obligations to expected standards.
