Our Construction ambassadors Monique & Shella want to encourage construction in the Younger generation
JRANDALL ROOFING CONTRACTORS LTD TRANING PROGRAMME FOR SCHOOL LEAVERS
J RANDALL ROOFING CONTRACTORS are encouraged and pleased that schools have been very positive towards our engagement with school leavers interested in joining apprentice schemes or going to college to learn practical skills to enable students to apply for jobs .Our latest imitative at Llanishen high school was to take 12 students around our site explaining the importance of health and safety and the controls that the HSE ask the construction industry to comply with in order to keep the staff working on the site safe. The pupils, teaching staff and ancillary staff that are present on a daily basis at the school have to be considered by the contractors and their safety is very important. Our site manager went through every aspect of setting up a site from the day the scaffold arrives ,how it is checked over ready for the roofers ,carpenters and cladders to start their work .We emphasised the importance of record keeping and showed them all aspects of the health and safety file which is kept up to date on a daily basis and is retained at the site office .The students were very keen to learn about the practicalities of a live construction site and interacted with our site manager answering his questions with enthusiasm and insight .We hope that the talk and visit which lasted 45 minutes was useful and gave the students an appetite to look at the roofing and construction industry as a career. It is our aim as a company to encourage DT departments at schools where we are repairing and renewing roofs to utilise our training programme and we would like to thank the Head teacher for the opportunity.
