Events & News News Chamber News Training Day success for Group of Companies RILMAC GROUP-WIDE TRAINING DAY A HUGE SUCCESS The Rilmac Group of Companies rounded off an excellent year with a highly successful group wide training day at the end of December. Employees from all across the country converged on the Epic Centre, at the Lincolnshire Showground for sessions on Health & Safety, Behavioural Change, and Safe Driving. Although the individual Rilmac Divisions have a history of running their own training days this was the first time all the Rilmac Companies have met together en masse, and it proved to be very successful. Group chairman Paul Walker opened the day addressing the 250 employees in attendance, the largest gathering of Rilmac staff in its 60-year history. Scaffolders, welders and platers mixed with thermal insulation engineers and asbestos removal staff. All four Rilmac offices; Lincoln, Northampton, London and Huddersfield, were present. Guest speakers from Clarkes Health & Safety Consultants, Kier, Galliford Try, ARCA and Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership presented throughout the day along with individuals from the Rilmac Group. Speaking after the event Group Managing Director, Steve Baxter said, “It has been an excellent day. This was a great opportunity for all our staff, from across the country and across all our Divisions to meet and share experiences. The safety of our employees and those affected by our work is our number one priority and the topics covered today were selected to focus on particular areas of risk to the business. All the speakers and presentations were of the highest quality, each bringing something new and beneficial to our employees. This has been an ideal way to round off a fantastic year.” The Directors and Management across all the Rilmac companies expressed their thanks and gratitude to Mark Clarke, Clare Davey, Steve Spedding, Geoff Silver and John Siddle for their excellent contribution on the day. Rilmac are determined to grow on the success of their first group wide training day and plans are already underway for the next one in December 2018.
