BUCK & HICKMAN TEAM AWARDED IOSH ACCREDITATION
24 March 2016
Buck & Hickman, the UK’s leading distributor of tools, maintenance and health & safety products, has demonstrated its commitment to staff training and customer safety after members of the sales teams underwent the IOSH-accredited Assessing Hand Protection training course, led by Polyco.
The training programme saw members of the sales team attend a specialist course designed to provide health and safety professionals with the expertise to select the most appropriate hand protection for any given application, navigate the glove selection process and avoid potentially costly mistakes.
In line with PPE directive, EN Standards, and CE marking legislation, the course combined nine sessions of theory with practical group exercises, covering the basic principles and processes, and educating attendees about evaluating and selecting the most appropriate hand protection. The certification cumulated in a short assessment, with all attendees awarded the certificate.
Nadine Sherwoord, Product Manager at Buck & Hickman, explained: “We’re committed to ensuring all our team undergo rigorous training and development to ensure they have the expert knowledge to assist our customers and offer the best solution for their application.
“We pride ourselves on offering a diverse selection of top-of-the-range PPE products from leading brands, but as part of our value-added service, our team are trained to have the technical knowledge and experience to best advise our customers on the most appropriate product for their application, and this certification demonstrates our commitment to customer safety.”
Deborah Cooney, National Account Manager of Polyco said: “The feedback from the Buck & Hickman team that attended the course was excellent and they were all very enthusiastic. The training programme is a fantastic way to get individuals who work with health and safety products up-to-speed with the process of glove manufacturing and the latest requirements of hand protection.”
