2024 yearly journal
This is my 5th semi-retirement year I only work 3 days a week now.
2020-21 was a bad year for Covid 19 (Corona Virus) but I have never stopped so been quite fortunate.
I have written Covid 19 risk assessments and method statements – Toolbox talks & Construction phase plans to include Covid 19 procedures for a number of companies including sports clubs – hotels -theatres and travel companies.
I am fortunate to have not lost a client due to the pandemic.
From March to July, I was an NHS Volunteer responder it was a privilege to do and I am quite proud I could offer my services to my own community of Barnsley I have gained some great contacts.
In 2019 I wrote my own internal E Learning type training for companies all awareness courses as advised by the HSE, they have all been approved by CHAS and quite a few Principal contractors, so staff don’t need classroom or e learning online not all courses need to be accredited.
I also wrote internal courses for Construction specific like Construction Site Awareness & Site coordinator training these have been approved by CHAS and some principal contractors instead of CSCS & SMSTS as both these courses are Health and Safety Site Awareness.
I have linked up with 2 plant and machinery companies Euro 1 from Carcroft Doncaster & Birkwood from Wakefield thanks to Darren Hackleton for contacts.
In 2023 I have taken on 7 new clients and many more associates to use to outsource my training for my clients what I cannot do.
