    Award-winning RNLI trainees’ safety ideas taken on board

    Award-winning RNLI trainees’ safety ideas taken on board

    Coming up with a new way to standardise the storage of hazardous chemicals at their RNLI base has won a team of apprentices a top safety accolade.

    Recommendations made by the apprentices, who had used the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) as a reference, were taken on board by officials at the charity’s All-weather Lifeboat Centre in Poole, Dorset.

    That resulted in new storage cabinets and signs being installed at the centre as well as the creation of new data sheets to make record-keeping better.

    Awards raise workplace safety awareness

    Now their efforts have resulted in the trainees being presented with the Apprentices Safety Award trophy by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health’s (IOSH) South Coast Branch.

    RNLI apprentices were also among those receiving highly commended merit awards for other projects, including one related to near-miss feedback forms.

    The RNLI centre’s production operations manager, John McCallion, says while the organisation knows it still has “a long way to go”, the success of its apprentices shows that progress is being made towards establishing a good safety culture.

    The awards are designed to help boost apprentices’ understanding of workplace safety hazards and risks.

    And the IOSH’s president, Dr Karen McDonnell, says she hopes the award winners’ success will result in some of them considering safety and health as a future career option.
