Kingdom staff put Health and Safety in the spotlight

Kingdom Housing Association kept their learning local when they chose Fife College to deliver their latest Health and Safety training course.

Over four days, seven members of staff from Kingdom successfully completed the IOSH (Institute of Safety and Health) training course. Training included an introduction to Health and Safety Legislation as well as delivering a good understanding of risk management. Participants on the course also developed an understanding of the practical actions needed for effective health and safety within their teams.

Fern Barclay, Kingdom’s Health and Safety trainee, completed the course and said, “Protecting our tenants is always our number one priority but we also recognise the importance of keeping our staff safe too as they go about their day-to-day work. One of our strategic goals is to be an employer of choice and demonstrating our commitment to staff wellbeing through courses like this shows how much we value our people.”

Kingdom’s Health and Safety Officer, Dave Roy, said: “IOSH as an accredited qualification towards health and safety and the training will certainly prove useful to our staff members when working on our various projects. Well done to all for successfully completing the course”.
