CorrBoard UK, the independent sheet-feeding specialist based in Scunthorpe, has announced that a dedicated cohort of colleagues has successfully completed the rigorous IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health) working safely training.

The IOSH training initiative undertaken by the CorrBoard team covered various critical areas such as hazard identification, incident reporting, emergency response protocols, and the promotion of a safety-conscious culture within the organization.

Through a combination of theoretical instruction and practical exercises, the participants gained valuable insights and best practices to address risks within the workplace effectively.

Each of the 12 colleagues will now receive a certificate to confirm that they have completed the course, which will form part of a wider personal development plan, supporting learning and career development within the business.

"We are really proud of all colleagues that have completed the IOSH working safely training, and it is only the beginning of our IOSH training programme," said Katie Woodward, Head of Operations at CorrBoard. "At CorrBoard, the safety and well-being of our employees has always been paramount, and this initiative further reinforces our commitment to maintaining the highest standards in occupational safety. By equipping our workforce with the necessary skills and knowledge, we are fostering a culture of safety and ensuring that everyone returns home safely at the end of each day."
