Transport and Technical Services to deliver City & Guilds courses to employees

18 August 2010

The Transport and Technical Services Department (TTS), in partnership with Highlands College, has been accredited as a training venue to deliver new health and safety training courses for City & Guilds.
The courses - Working in Confined Spaces (6150) - reflect the new National Occupational Standards set out by the UK utility companies and approved by the UK Health and Safety Executive.

Starting in the autumn, TTS will be delivering the City & Guild courses from its own premises at Bellozanne. The courses will allow staff members to risk assess and put in place the appropriate procedures for working in confined spaces such as sewers, tanks, silos or other similar enclosed spaces.

City & Guilds is an international vocational training organisation and TTS had to meet its standards to become an accredited venue. Previously, staff at TTS had been trained for working in confined spaces, but the new course represents an opportunity to improve standards further and ensure staff receive the most up to date training for working in what can be a dangerous environment.

Although Bellozanne will be the main venue for the training, attendees will also be using the practical training facilities at the Fire and Rescue Services training facility at Rouge Bouillon.

Chief Officer, John Rogers, said "We are really pleased to be able to provide these courses for our employees. At TTS we aim to continually improve our safety performance and this will be a significant step forward in what can be a hazardous area of work.”
