Our apprentices recognised in latest safety awards

apprentices The south coast branch of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has held their annual apprentices' competition for the 'Allan St John Holt Award', and our (NFDC) entries were commended.

Cllr Barry Rickman, Leader, said, "We support the apprenticeship scheme by providing hands-on experience to enable people to learn skills that employers want, and to gain qualifications.

"I am proud to say that the apprentices' efforts to standardise the provision of personal protective equipment across NFDC's workforce and the development and introduction of a health and safety handbook for all new staff offering advice, support and guidance, led them to be commended at this year's awards."

In a presentation (14 June) the four apprentices, Fran Baker, Tom Shorey, Joe Carruthers and Lewis Sargent, who work at the Council in Streetscene, HR, and Accountancy, were awarded their certificates and trophies by Nick Burchell, Chairman of IOSH South Coast Branch.

We have had 35 apprentices since 2010, and seven have gone on to secure permanent jobs with us.
