We know that expertly trained operatives are of paramount importance. All of our operatives complete our BICSc accredited comprehensive training programme before they work on any site operations. Highly trained operatives allow Abelian to consistently achieve the standards and compliance set with health and safety, security, fire precautions and other site rules. We are committed to investing in and providing all our employees with the skills and knowledge necessary to carry out their duties to our professional standards, time and time again.
All members of staff complete our modular compulsory training. In addition to this, we provide refresher training annually and when any changes in legislation arise or environmental change occurs. We believe that our dedication to constant improvement of our workforce is the key to our success.
We provide our operatives with the following training:
- BICSc Operative Proficiency Training - In recognition of our dedication to the training of all Abelian operatives to an appropriate, industry recognised level
- COSHH - Control of Substances Hazardous to Health is mandatory for all operatives
- Health & Safety Training - All staff are fully trained on the importance of Health & Safety internal and external to the workplace
- NVQ Training - NVQs are offered to members of staff who do not hold formal UK qualifications. This has proven to be successful so far, with the number of staff enrolling for such courses increasing each year, at a pass rate of 88% since 2007
