Caledonian Maintenance are a Glasgow based company that have contracts countrywide which range from Industrial Cleaning to Soft & Hard Landscaping.
MaxSafe Solutions were approached by the Directors of Caledonian to carry out a Training Needs Analysis in order to fulfil the needs of OHSAS 18001. The company have a very positive attitude to Health & Safety and are always looking to develop and improve their Safety Management Systems.
We provided all staff with training in various subjects to allow them to work safely in special circumstances including:
- Dealing with Sharps
- Manual Handling
- Emergency First Aid at Work
- Fire Warden
- Level 2 Fire Safety
- IOSH Managing Safely (Management Team)
Caledonian Maintenance have also discussed the need for ongoing H&S advice through our Consultancy Service which takes the pressure of the Management Team with a point of call for any Health & Safety issues that may arise. We also audit periodically to make sure the high standards that are already in place are maintained and also oversee the annual evacuation procedures as well as supply all the fire safety materials. The requirement for staff to achieve the CSCS green card to gain access to sites was identified. Staff attended the 1 day IOSH Working Safely prior to attending our business partners to sit the CSCS touch screen test.
“Through consultation with Maxsafe Solutions we have been able to identify gaps in the existing training programme we offer to our staff. Maxsafe have provided several bespoke training courses that target the specific needs of our business. This has allowed us to develop the knowledge of our staff through series of practical training sessions that they have been able to relate to their daily work tasks. Maxsafe solutions will continue to be an integral part of our training programme and to consult us on any changes to current legislation.”Jim McLaughlin
