Dear Don, Thank you for providing First Aid Training to the field staff of EnergySmart Timaru today. Our Installers work in a dangerous working environment and the guys are always cutting fingers and backs etc. It's very hard to get them to slow down and reduce the accident rate. Therefore supplying them with good first aid kits and effective first aid training is essential. The opportunity to have in-house training tailored to suit our work environment, with focus on relevant on-site First Aid and NZQA Unit Standard, has been of more benefit to these men than any of First Aid Training they have attended in the past. I feel that the key has been that your sessions require the persons to "participate"...not just attend. Our staff were all totally involved with the training and discussions and the interactive training has had an immediate effect on their confidence and attitude regarding safety. We can provide first Aid kits and protective equipment such as respirators, kneepads, gloves etc, but all of these are reliant on our installers understanding the importance of using these tools and how to use them. The discussion you had with them about environmental hazards they may come into contact with, highlighted for these men that everything they were about to learn could be relevant to them on any day. From an employer perspective, the option to have the training on our own premises meant we had less disruption to our business. I highly recommend your training to other business looking for effective training from a professional company who make it all so simple, no fuss and complete. Yours sincerely Rowena McLintock Branch Manager ...”
