Train Safe, Work Safe, Keep Safe Campaign
Train Safe, Work Safe, Keep Safe Campaign has now been running since 2015 with the support of many UKATA Members past and present. The campaign has proved a huge success with in excess of 4,000 hours per annum donated by Members, free of charge, to offer Asbestos Awareness training to those who need it most.
The award winning Train Safe, Work Safe, Keep Safe Campaign was commended in 2018 at The Health & Safety Excellence Awards in recognition for the significant improvement in health and safety. UKATA Director Jacqui Royall was accompanied by Events & Marketing Officer Victoria Castelluccio to collect a certificate of excellence in recognition of the success of the campaign at a star studded event in Birmingham.
2018 Partnership with Jobcentre Plus
Discussions took place in 2018 with Jobcentre Plus part of The Department for Work & Pensions, to understand how The Train Safe, Work Safe Campaign could work to support the unemployed and those actively seeking employment. UKATA, supported by Members wish to reach out to those who may not know about the risks associated with asbestos and offer support to those who require training in order to get back into work.
Free training offered by UKATA Members supports those that are unemployed, NEETS (Not in Education, Employment or Training) and career changers in their journey to securing A job, a Better job and a future Career.
This training will be at no cost to JCP or the learner.
The Campaign will run from October 2018 to March 2019.
