From Andrew Price, Managing Director.
Life and contracts work at Lighthouse continues at some pace. Since the beginning of 2011 we have completed a mountain of work.
Over the last two months we have completed delivering three Site Managers Courses (SMSTS), with two others already started with full loading on each, one in Rainham and one in Portsmouth. We have also delivered three Site Supervisors (SSSTS) Courses, again with full loading each, two in Rainham and one in Portsmouth, plus two Achieving Behavioural Change (ABC) courses for Bison Manufacturing in Swadlincote, Derbyshire.
In addition there has been two IOSH Managing Safely courses come and go, one in Rainham and one for Bison. In January we also ran an IOSH Working Safely for a local company, the first time in a long time that particular course has even been requested.
I suppose the course that we should be shouting loudest about is our inaugural National and International CPC and ADR (Transportation of Hazardous Goods) combined course. This has proved hugely competitive and attractive to Transport Managers to the point that we have already had considerable interest about our next course which starts on the 23 May 2011.
Our contract for the MOD via Mid Kent College still continues to run smoothly, and we envisage this to continue for the foreseeable future.
Sitting here recalling all, makes me wonder how have we managed. I suppose the answer is by carefully managing and planning for future growth. In the first week of March we recruited a new full time member of our team to assist us with growing demands, so welcome to Stephen. Some of you will get to meet him in the coming months, and we trust you will find him as professional as the rest of our team.
To add to the workload we have had a recertification visit by SGS, who certify us as compliant to the ISO 9001:2008 standards and it was pleasing to say that not only did the visit go well but there were areas considered as best practice. Thanks need passing to our whole team for their efforts, especially Sarah and Helen Bray, our ISO consultant.
So much news, perhaps we’ll leave until the next newsletter details of the consultancy work that is ongoing in the background.
If you would like to add to our workload and join a growing group of companies that rely on our support then please do contact us. We’ll be happy to discuss how we can exceed your expectations.
