Five from Guernsey and two from Jersey have undertaken the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health’s ‘Managing Safely’ training. It is designed for managers and supervisors in any sector and any country.
‘At AFM we take health and safety extremely seriously and always seek to support our managers in their day-to-day management. This course highlights the importance of assessing and controlling risks and hazards,’ said Mark Edgar, managing director of AFM.
‘It also helps to improve organisation-wide safety awareness and instils an appreciation of safety measures. It has been proved that the completion of health and safety training such as this one provided by IOSH improves business productivity too, reducing the number of hours lost to sickness and injury.’
Completing the course in Guernsey were electrical manager Wayne Harwood, fire and security manager Martin Le Page, maintenance manager Roy Luxon and assistant cleaning managers Alvika Bicane and Daniel Jardim. In Jersey, Chris Pinch, fire and security manager, Cliff Graves , build fabrics manager and projects manager, Chantel Gratz, successfully completed the certificate.
