SELECT donates safe isolation posters and toolbox cards to help keep apprentices safe – FE News

Scotland’s largest construction trade association, SELECT, is handing out practical, toolbox-sized Safe Isolation posters and flow charts to remind adult apprentices and trainees of good working practice.

The electric organization in the countryside is currently distributing Ten steps to safe isolation posters at the 22 training centers used by the Scottish Electrical Charitable Training Trust (SECTT), to be displayed prominently as reminders of how to work safely.

Smaller durable versions, designed to fit easily into toolboxes, are also being made available to the 2,669 electrician apprentices and adult trainees currently in training in Scotland.

Presented under the banner “Work dead safe: Stay alive”, the posters and cards have been adapted from the range of safe isolation equipment launched by SELECT in January 2021.

The first resources were handed over to David Henderson, Head of the SECTT Assessment Center at Cambuslang, on Friday March 18, by Bob Cairney, Technical Services Manager for SELECT.

David said: “These resources will help reinforce the importance of safe isolation for all adult learners and trainees and we will encourage all learners to include the toolkit cards in their daily kit.”

Bob added: “It is essential that apprentices learn about safe isolation early in their careers so that good practice becomes second nature and helps keep them and others safe. We hope these resources will be a constant reminder of the need to work safely and stay alive.

The remaining posters and cards will now be distributed to the 21 approved centers in Scotland by Barrie Mckay, Training and Development Manager at SECTT, with assistance from SECTT Training Managers.

Barrie said, “We are grateful to SELECT for producing and sharing these essential resources, which should be at the heart of every apprentice’s toolbox. »

The cards will also be distributed at upcoming SELECT Toolbox Talks in May and June, and posters are also available to members upon request.
