Training and Competence

Training and competence of our people is of the utmost importance. With ever changing regulations in the civil contracting sector we want our staff to be compliant and confident for all the jobs they undertake. We undertake internal competency assessments for all our operators and have a certified internal trainer and assessor. External training is encouraged and promoted recent training has included:

  • Lifting , slinging and placement course
  • St John’s First Aid course and Pre Hospital Care courses
  • Site Safe civil and advanced passports
  • Numerous staff are trained in Basic Traffic control and selected staff have STMS
  • Monthly training sessions are held for all interested staff on an array of topics including:
    • Log book compliance
    • Trench Compaction
    • Manual handling


We believe if we are conducting work safety by competent and trained people the quality of the work will follow, though we do undertake testing regimes to ensure the quality of each and every project we undertake.  Testing regimes include compaction testing with clegg hammer, daily trench inspections and a variety of reticulated service testing including chlorination and hydrostatic testing.
