Miles Macadam would like to wish every one of our clients and employees, a Happy New Year! 2023 is here and we are back at work, raring to go.

We’ve started off the new year with our annual training days. Every year, we gather our site staff into the office for two days of health checks, training courses, refresher courses (and more), to ensure they go into the new year safely, and healthily.

Our training days cover:

  • A review of our 2022 objectives
  • Miles Macadam Integrated Management System – policy, procedures and standards
  • Audit feedback from the 2022 ISOQAR & BBA audits
  • Site Inspection Feedback
  • Quality/Product/Performance Review
  • Mental Health Awareness – open discussion regarding mental health within the construction industry
  • Basic First Aid – for all of those who aren’t fully qualified first aiders
  • Safety Critical Worker Assessments – covering general medical assessment, skin health, lung function, audiometry and hand-arm vibration.
  • Face Fit Testing
  • Asbestos Awareness
  • Aquam Calm Networks Theory Training
  • Practical session – good working practice and safe operation of the site-based bitumen boiler.

These sessions are to make sure that our lads are fully equipped and prepared for the year ahead. It provides a refresher on what they already know, as well as new training to ensure the safety of themselves and others on site.

We also want to say a huge thank you to Sue, who arranges the training days, along with Tony. Sue and Tony spend many many hours organising the schedule and content of these days and we are very grateful for their efforts!
