Severnt Trent Water are one of the largest of the 10 regulated water and waste water companies in England and Wales. They provide high quality services to more than 4.3 million households and businesses in the Midlands and mid-Wales. They employ just over 5000 employees and call upon the services of some 4,500 contractors.
Paul Knight has been involved with 2 major projects for the business which continue to run to this day.
1. Development and delivery of a bespoke 2 day training course on managing the health and safety risks associated with contractors and suppliers.
2. Development and delivery of a bespoke training course to assess manual handling tasks using the HSE’s MAC system.
Following the withdrawal of Aviva from the health and safety training market place, we in Severn Trent Water had a dilemma, as they were the providers of our in house managing contractors and suppliers training course.
Fortunately, Paul Knight was the lead and developer of that course content and its delivery and was able to continue providing that level of service to us. The course content is excellent and the feedback we get consistently from delegates is about the high standard of delivery from Paul.
Additional courses developed with Paul recently include manual handling risk assessment and a review of the content of the managing contractors course, to incorporate CDM 2015 changes and changes to our organisational structure.
What comes across consistently is the back ground effort Paul puts in to understand the subject matter and the specific work place scenarios that we have in Severn Trent Water, which means the course content delivers the specific needs of our business to the right standard. Course delegates’ feedback is consistent about high quality content and delivery, all that we need to hear as a FTSE employer that takes health and safety seriously.
