Case Study: Autoglass & Belron Group
The Belron Group is the world’s leading vehicle repair & replacement glass company. Perhaps best known by UK consumers for its Autoglass brand, the company is responsible for the handling of a delicate product in large volumes.
The 2 day City & Guilds manual handling train the trainer event was held for participants from a cross section of the group’s businesses. Some were existing manual handling trainers and others were new to the subject. According to Standards Manager Lameck Sithole, “the training was extremely beneficial. It was tailored to our needs and run in a very interactive manner to maximise the company specific benefits. The participants have been well equipped to deliver training to our handlers.”
As the handling of windscreens involved some very specific best practice techniques, Alistair Bromhead undertook a site visit to understand the process, talk to site personnel and to watch handlers in action. Discussions were subsequently held with the health and safety management team to further develop best practice which was then integrated into the 2 day train the trainer course.
