Six employees at precast concrete products manufacturer Poundfield have been recognised after completing the Institute of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH) “Managing Safely” course.
Tina Dawson (production administrator), Tony Deane (yard manager), Sam Paterson (production superviser), Adam Rembelski (production team leader), John Sheppard (production foreman) and Chris Skippins (quality control manager), who achieved top marks for the course, were presented with their certificates by Poundfield Products managing director Mark Jardine.
They successfully completed a four-day accredited course at Park City Consulting in Colchester which aims to equip managers to embed safety and health throughout their entire organisation.
Matt Moss, commercial director at Poundfield Products, which is based at Creeting St Peter, said: “Creating a safety first culture is one of our priorities as a company whose values are based on quality; quality of production, quality of customer service and quality of employment.
“With over 70 staff working in a busy and highly skilled manufacturing operation, we have a particular duty to ensure that everyone is aware of their responsibilities to themselves, their work colleagues and the company as a whole.” “Safety and profitability are not opposites; they go hand-in hand,” he added. “Having IOSH accredited managers is good for safety and good for our business and its reputation and I’m delighted that all six of these managers passed with flying colours. Well done to them!”
