Zaun Invest in Health & Safety Training for Staff


Zaun is delighted to announce that several of our staff have successfully passed various training courses recently within the business, provided by PLT Training. These staff members have undertaken training to continue their career development and learn valuable knowledge for the company, ensuring safe working conditions are adhered to.

Safety in the Use of Abrasive Wheels Training

Andy Moore, Des Ellits, Tom Fedulins, Richard New and Thomas Slade have all completed and passed their Safety in the Use of Abrasive Wheels course. A course designed and structured to provide training in the safe use of abrasive wheels and meets the requirements of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER 98) and the Health and Safety Executive HSG 17. “Safety in the Use of Abrasive wheels”.

Concerning abrasive wheels, PUWER 98 requires, among other things, that all machinery is suitable for its intended use and is properly maintained and that employees, including those using, mounting and managing the operation of abrasive wheels, are fully informed and properly trained in their safe use.

Overhead Crane Handling Training

Lawrence Sinabgani, Alec Callear, Stuart Banks, Kevin Lloyd, and Andy Moore have completed and passed their Overhead Crane training course. This training allows the employee to carry out routine inspections of the machinery/lifting tackle and recognise the causes of load instability.  They can also operate the crane using safe and correct procedures in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and good practice.

Fire Marshall Training

Kevin Lloyd and Sharnie Tanner have completed and passed their fire marshall training course, the nominated emergency response personnel. This training provides staff with the knowledge and skills to fulfil the role of a company Fire Marshal. In particular, prepare them to respond promptly and positively in the event of a suspected or actual fire and facilitate the safe evacuation of premises.

Well done to everyone involved!
