As part of continual commitment to Health & Safety and our benchmark standard of operative training, McNiven allocated each Friday in May to carry out training workshops in partnership with our key training providers.
The training days were carried out onsite with Ochil Training & STS Group whereby our operatives undertook refresher courses for Excavator, Dumper and Roller machinery. 1st Safety Solutions also provided Manual Handling, Facefit, Asbestos Awareness and Abrasive wheels workshops which were attended by all of our site based operatives.
“At McNiven Construction we do not only view Health & Safety as a legal requirement, we train our operatives to beyond the minimum standards required within our field. Having a dedicated month of training has allowed our operatives to engage with our trainers onsite rather than just the classroom. Being able to engage with our trainers and ask questions is vital for our operatives and we have taken note of some fantastic ideas that are a result of this collaborative learning approach.” – Leigh McNiven, Construction Director
