Training at Floorbrite
Floorbrite invest more money and time into the training and development of our staff than ever before. We recognise the need to continue training beyond initial qualifications: to maintain, upgrade and update skills throughout our working life.
We provide both on-the-job and off-the-job training, delivered by our dedicated Training and Development Manager. We also train via external sources for industry recognised and educational standards such as specific professional qualifications in Finance and HR, NVQ’s, PASMA, Tag, IRATA, IPAF, MEWP, specialist machinery and Health and Safety and first aid.
Floorbrite’s Training and Development Manager
On smaller sites our fully trained Area Managers are more than capable of handling the TUPE process and inducting and training new personnel into the initial Floorbrite processes. However, our larger sites benefit from the additional support of our Training and Development Manager before the contract even starts. Their process begins here:
• Involvement from the Training and Development Manager at TUPE consultation stage to help to establish who will be transferring to Floorbrite in any new contract.
• Involvement in the interview process to establish qualifications or experience for a particular job.
• Assistance on the first day of a contract to help the Floorbrite Area Manager to complete Site Inductions to ensure staff are aware of: H & S, fire exits, smoking policy, safe behaviour, location of welfare areas, PPE, electrical equipment checks, chemical hazards, safety arrangements on site, manual handling and toolbox talks followed by a questionnaire.
• Provision of chemical training.
• Introduction to a site specific “Client File” (Including COSHH) maintained on every site.
• Training for colour coding.
