Apprentice SHAD Success
Attended by almost one hundred and fifty apprentices, from trades including joinery, civil engineering and electrical, the event was delivered by the Working Well Together team, in partnership with West Lothian College.
The SHAD kicked off with introductions from West Lothian College Principal, Jackie Galbraith and Sarah Shore, Head of Operations – HSE Construction Division, Yorkshire, North East and Scotland.
Following a interesting presentation from Healthy Working Lives, five interactive workshops were run on scaffolding, plant and people separation, construction dust, asbestos and electrical safety.
There is no doubt that initiatives to reach out to young people starting out in the industry and vital in embedding a health and safety culture.
We look forward to continuing to work with the WWT team to deliver more events like this in the future.
