Site Teams Receive Electrical Isolation Training

Nov 27, 2019 Health & Safety, Training

Earlier this month, some of our site teams received additional training in the safe isolation of electrical circuits.

Merryhill are on a number of social housing contracts and often work near live electrical installations. This is primarily when we are asked to remove or make safe, asbestos containing textured coated ceilings.

Given the volume of work on such contracts, it is often the case that Merryhill site teams rely on other contractors to isolate / make safe any installations affected by our works.

By having our own site teams trained to carry out such isolations it means we are able to provide a better service for our clients, whilst ensuring the safety of our operatives.

We are often asked how we can provide the best possible value for money on such contracts and this is one of many ways Merryhill is able to assist. By not having to send 2 teams to the same property, social landlords can save time, money and improve their carbon footprint due to reduced trips often made by car / van.

Merryhill is committed to providing the most up-to-date and relevant training for our site teams. This course, along with many others form part of our ongoing improvement plan to increase the skill set of our employees. We believe that skilled and competent employees are not only beneficial to us as an employer, but also helps to make staff feel appreciated and valued.
