Well Done- Training programme wins two top awards

The two companies have been honoured after teaming up to provide safety training to Corus employees. The ‘Felt Leadership’ course received the regional training award and the national training award, at a ceremony held at the National Motor Cycle Museum in the West Midlands, on 1 October.The two-day programme is designed to change workers’ mindsets and get them to take responsibility for their own safety, rather than think it’s someone else’s job. The course is delivered to a mixed group of team leaders, shift managers, manufacturing managers and departmental managers, representing production and engineering. Over 1,900 employees and contractors have completed the programme and it continues to be rolled out to other Corus sites across the UK.Since the programme began there has been an increase in the number, and the calibre, of near miss reports, which has led to action being taken before a more serious incident occurs. The company has also recorded the lowest accident figures in its 35-year history.Ashbourne Hill Management College managing director, John Carson, is pleased that the course’s success has received industry recognition. He said: “I am delighted that Ashorne Hill has been recognised by such an accolade for the work we do. The National Training Awards are known as the training industry’s Oscars and we are delighted to be recognised, having developed a close partnership and programme with Corus. The competition this year was really tough, which makes winning a real achievement.”
