As a renowned steeplejack company it is extremely important that they safe guard not only their business and employees interests safely, but also their clients and the general public with a thorough understanding of their legal obligations and requirements on site.

IWTS provided the solution to their training needs by not only offering the right training, but also providing professional health and safety advice following consultation. In addition to the essential training to meet with these pressing demands it was vital to them as a business to avoid incidents and potential accidents. Thereby ensuring a highly trained and fully competent workforce happy with the knowledge that their training enabled them to work more safely on site and with associated contractors.

Bailey International prides itself in supplying very highly skilled and competent operatives to their clients on all industrial and commercial sites requiring high access. With not only site operatives completing this training, but also including senior management and supervisors as well.  The close working relationship that was built with the team at IWTS went a very long way to ensure that this criterion was achieved.

Speaking of the service from IWTS, Andrew Bailey the Director at Bailey International said:

“We would have no hesitations in recommending IWTS to any other organisation requiring a highly professional standard from a health and safety training provider.”

Of particular note from IWTS was their attention to detail and the life like training courses utilising a purpose built confined space and working at heights simulator. All based at the new state of the art training facilities at the IWTS centre in Oldham. The health and safety training at IWTS is fully accredited by all of the relevant awarding bodies’ schemes to achieve required standards. To ensure that operatives at Bailey International achieve and maintain these necessary standards, they are regularly put through their paces in credible conditions that helps prepare them for real on site situations that they are likely to encounter in their daily work.

IWTS team raises the bar in training standards…

Custom 1

 

Raising the bar in training standards, Oldham based health and safety training company Industrial Water Training Services (IWTS) Ltd has now achieved TAQA approved status… doing so in record time!

 

C&G_APPROVED_CENTRE_FC_RGBThe achievement was all the more significant as the training company just launched officially at the start of 2016. Reflecting that the right framework was already well in place to “hit the ground running” in providing officially approved course delivery of the highest standard in health and safety, along with other training. With members of the team achieving Level 3 in Assessing and Level 4 in Internal Quality Assurance to meet the required standards.

The purpose of the City and Guilds Training Assessment and Quality Assurance (TAQA) scheme is to train assessors and tutors, along with those carrying out quality assurance, to meet officially recognised national standards; to have the necessary competence to deliver these functions effectively. These qualifications are designed to equip a broad range of assessors, trainers, facilitators and teachers to support learners successfully. IWTS is now even more effectively positioned as a highly professional and fully licensed/accredited training provider, to ensure that safety compliance is met at all times when delivering training provision.

Speaking about reaching the nationally required training standard, Mike Todd who completed the 3 day assessment programme at IWTS on behalf of City & Guilds said:

“The team at IWTS now meets the most up to date TAQA qualifications, fully attaining the requirements set by National Occupational Standards (NOS) and City & Guilds.

IWTS took the decision to undergo stringent assessment, as many training companies still use staff who don’t hold the necessary up to date qualifications and therefore are working to the old A1/A2 Assessors Qualifications… that are no longer valid. These were replaced in 2010 by the much more rigorous TAQA standards that are currently required from all training centres approved by City & Guilds.

This ensures that IWTS customers, can be confident to receive the highest quality training assessment and internal quality assurance practise across all qualification routes, delivered by the centre.”

Achieving TAQA approved status as a training organization, reaffirms that IWTS has the ability to deliver training that is officially recognized and meets awarding bodies’ stringent requirements. This is of paramount importance, since only fully accredited and approved health and safety training is recognized nationally. Being mandatory by Law that only fully trained operatives must work in hazardous conditions and to do so safely when working in such circumstances in the UK – only after approved and accredited training from a competent provider.

Primarily, IWTS makes certain that its health and safety training delegates learn how to work effectively and safely in hazardous conditions to comply with legislation, guidance and national occupational standards. Priding itself with qualified tutors who are highly competent and experienced in all aspects that they teach and assess in; IWTS courses are supported and backed by the relevant national awarding bodies with official licensing from City & Guilds, CITB Construction Skills (Cskills) and the Water Jetting Association.

IWTS can train up to 168 delegates per week delivering highly specialist training courses to delegates from its modern purpose built training facilities in Oldham. With the added ability to simulate realistically, confined space and at height working environments in training scenarios, with its custom built training simulator. They can also offer bespoke training to meet client needs – where they want, when they want – delivered on site if required, at weekends and evenings if needed (including varied shift patterns and in line with awarding body scheme permission).
