Hygiene Group 'to the rescue'

07 December 2011

Hygiene Group says it has further invested in its employees by offering them the opportunity to take a course in confined space entry procedures covering search and rescue using self-contained breathing apparatus

Hygiene Group is believed to be one of the first providers of cleaning services to the food sector to offer this type of training to its employees. The two-day course trains staff in safe entry and exit of a confined space, emergency procedures while operators are working in the confined space and life-saving search and rescue in an enclosed environment.

Helen Millership, health & safety manager at Hygiene Group said: “Our teams frequently have to clean confined spaces such as silos and cooling towers. With this training, they can carry out more complicated confined space work, requiring a greater level of expertise, for which clients may previously have had to engage a specialist contractor.

“Hygiene Group already has a permanent presence on these clients’ sites and our site knowledge, availability and cost-effectiveness allows us to add further value to their operation.”

The Birmingham-based company is dedicated to developing its workforce and, along with the confined space search and rescue course, offers a range of other training well above that offered by many other cleaning provider.

As a result, Hygiene Group has received awards for its investment in staff, including the British Chambers of Commerce Award for Excellence in People Development.
