Wiltshire Fire & Rescue

31 Jul 2010

After a brief break, 2010 saw Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service resume LGV Cat C training with Wttl.

Since mid January this year, we have had seven candidates attend our standard 5-day course, with all seven passing first time. As you can imagine this is something we at Wttl are very proud of, and it would not be possible without candidates who are willing to learn and arrive on day 1 raring to go.

The 'Magnificent Seven' are:

Firefighter Edward Purbrick
Firefighter Paul Leney
Firefighter Matthew Skyme
Firefighter Paul Howell
Firefighter Chris Hughes
Firefighter David Watkins
Firefighter Mark Evans

Alex Walsh, Driver Trainer for Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service, has been key in organising all their training and is as pleased as we are with the results.

Alex told us: "Once again a job well done. Please pass on our thanks to all concerned. I don't want to jinx the current pass rate but would like to congratulate the excellent work by your training staff"

Wttl are looking forward to continuing our exceptional relationship with Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service and help support them in carrying out the remarkable service they provide to our community.

Peake (GB) Ltd - Benefits of Training

10 May 2010

Peake (GB) Ltd, based in Liskeard, Cornwall, are a specialist waste disposal and recycling company, with a long term commitment to delivering quality to their customers, ranging from local authorities, NHS trusts and private companies and individuals.

Over recent years as the company has grown, so too did the number of incidents both off and on site, resulting in an increasing repair bill to vehicles, and concerns about the possibility of injury. Many steps have been taken to improve driver skills, within the last two years all drivers have undertaken Safed training(, digital tachograph where required, tipper safety awarenesss, and many have gained an NVQ level 2 qualification.

Within the Plant Ops NVQ delivered by WTTL, the need for training was also recognised, with forklift and telehandler training given to those who operate plant machinery. The plant has a majority Polish workforce, and the senior foreman, Piotr, (pictured with some of his colleagues and Assessor Jim White) said that “he feels he is working in a safer environment since having received training”– from an assessors viewpoint it has been interesting to see how much their English has improved as we have worked with them on their training and qualifications.

The management team have noticed that the staff have felt rewarded and feel more part of the team– and have noticed that incidents have reduced to virtually zero, with all staff working more cohesively. It was also noticed that staff turnover has reduced, and that the Polish staff work within the team and communicate more readily with English speaking colleagues
