Steve Terry (Astutis, Managing Director) has worked with Crown Paints and indeed Akzo Nobel for over 10 years. He has arranged various NEBOSH and IOSH training initiatives at the site in Darwen as well as a behavioural programme called Towards Total Safety.
Tailored Accident Investigation training
More recently, Ron Anderson from the Hull site requested assistance with some Accident Investigation training. ‘We have a great team of Safety Advisors and Managers on-site but just wanted to be sure that accidents were being investigated and reported in a consistent way’, said Ron.
‘I have worked with Astutis in developing a bespoke site-wide programme that now ticks all of the right boxes and gives us a superb platform more moving forward with our accident reporting’.
This training is now also being delivered for 30 staff at the Darwen site.
Great working relationship
Mark Lloyd, Head of HS&E said ‘it has been a great working relationship and very much a lasting one I was actually trained in my NEBOSH Diploma by Brenig Moore (Astutis Operations Director) many years ago when I started my career in health and safety’
