ATS Euromaster embarks on national IOSH training programme
ATS Euromaster has been licensed to deliver the qualification inhouse by IOSH. The programme will be written and presented by ATS Euromaster but the syllabus and course are set, monitored and licensed by IOSH.
Already the leadership team, consisting of the board of directors and the department heads, have received their certifications and now all managers within the company will be trained and assessed over the next three years.
Stan Rudowski, group head of health, safety and technical services at ATS Euromaster and Chartered Member of IOSH, said: “The motor industry is one of the five most dangerous industry sectors in which to work and with this step, we will ensure our staff continue to maintain the highest standard of expertise.”
ATS Euromaster Group managing director Peter Allen added: “We have a commitment to outstanding customer care and by implementing this course we are ensuring we have the required expertise to live up to this obligation. This is directly in-line with our company culture and our on-going responsibility to raising health and safety standards within the workplace.”
ATS Euromaster has already received a number of awards and accreditations for health and safety including membership of Safecontractor and the Contractors Health and Safety Scheme (CHAS). It was also presented with a second consecutive Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Award in May 2015.
In addition, the national tyre and vehicle maintenance provider has a number of internal schemes to promote safe working, such as its ‘Safe by Choice’ programme, which encourages staff to make safety their personal choice.
