Thursday, Feb 23, 2012

Partnership expands emergency response training offerings into industrial sector.

Building on a successful past year, health and safety training experts Falck Nutec have extended a number their emergency response offerings into the industrial and petrochemical sectors of the North-East of England. In a partnership with emergency response, risk, and security consultants, ALTOR Risk Group, the firm is launching an Incident Management Training (IMT) course in late March.

The Danish-parented firm last year launched a brand-new £575,000 renewable energy training extension to their premises. Since formally launching the state-of-the-art facility in November, the level of interest and investment in the region continues to grow. Falck Nutec – most-recognised for offshore survival and safety training - have also reported a very successful start to the year, with a range of self-sponsored individuals undertaking basic offshore training from the company’s purpose-built training centre on Teesside.

Falck Nutec UK Managing Director, Graham Gall, views recent developments as being vital to the prosperity and competency of the region, in light of any potential emergency situation: “We are frequently made aware of the various risks encountered when individuals work offshore. Additionally, we are looking to build on our existing knowledge in similar sectors to help provide practical training to local businesses on how to react, respond, and manage such events. The IMT course is as applicable to small-medium businesses as it is to large multi-national clients, a number of which encounter particularly challenging daily operations, with potentially hazardous materials

The course covers the principles of emergency management and the roles of the emergency services, information handling, including media response, welfare issues and the structure of command and control.  There are practical exercises to help develop individual confidence and understanding their roles and responsibilities. With recent topical events, such as the Costa Concordia cruise-ferry running aground off the Italian coast – there is an added-importance of knowing how to react in a professional and timely fashion to an incident. We are absolutely delighted with the start we have had to the year in Teesside, and we hope that this continues throughout 2012. Our credibility within the UK renewable energy industry continues to grow, alongside our portfolio in emergency response.”

The inaugural Incident Management Training course takes place from Falck Nutec’s Haverton Hill premises on Tuesday 27 March 2012, due to the thorough nature of the course, delegate places are limited.
