Established in 1969, the Carey Group is a leading multidiscipline construction and resource management group operating across the UK and Ireland. Due to the nature of their construction projects, Careys recognised the need to manage environmental risks on every site. Careys decided to partner with a specialist provider to deliver accredited training that could be provided according to their requirements, with minimal impact on the day to day activities of their sustainability team. EMS delivered the CITB recognised SEATS (Site Environmental Awareness Training Scheme) to a group of Careys staff and, following excellent feedback from the delegates, decided to include the course as part of their structured supervisor management training.
Flexibility of Delivery
EMS has delivered the training at Careys’ head office in Wembley and regional office in Scotland. The course has been delivered to groups of staff ranging from eight to thirteen delegates at times convenient to the company and their staff.
Using specialist, practicing external trainers has proved very successful at Careys. This has allowed staff to benefit from experiences outside of the company and learn about good practice from other companies. All of EMS’ qualified trainers are practicing environmental consultants and have experience across a wide range of industry sectors, including construction. By using resource specialist provider, Careys were able to deliver a CITB recognised qualification to their staff throughout the business. This was delivered to a consistent quality which meets the educational part of Careys sustainability strategy as well as the requirements of their supply chain. This is important to Careys to demonstrate commitment to environmental issues on site.
Following very positive feedback and recommendations from the members of staff who attended the training, EMS and Careys are continuing to work together to deliver more SEATS training.
