Tuesday 26th April saw Group Maintenance Personnel get together for some Health & Safety training.
Training was held at Slemish Private Nursing Home. Health & Safety Consultant, Hayley Burgess of HBSC Ltd facilitated the training and commented “The men were keen to get to grips with the more practical aspects of the training. It is encouraging to see employees eager to keep up to date with their continued professional development and thus helping to ensure a safer environment for all to work in”.
The one day course covered H & S Law Policy, Accident/Incident Reporting, First Aid, Personal Protective Equipment, Fire Evacuation procedures, COSHH and Manual Handling. Training was scored highly on participant feedback questionnaires and it also gave opportunity for maintenance personnel to share ideas for better work practices.
Care Circle Group and Larchwood Care (NI) Ltd are continually on the lookout for ways to implement and demonstrate the core values within the Group – Teamwork, Complete Professionalism, Residents First and Open Communication and it seems that this training opportunity afforded all participants a chance to model these values.
