Norwich based training business finalist for National safety achievement award

Norwich based training provider Shield Health & Safety has beaten stiff competition to be shortlisted as a finalist for the RTITB Partner Achievement Award 2016.

Only 20 training providers from across the UK were selected as finalists out of nearly 450 eligible work place transport training companies. Shield Health & Safety was shortlisted following an assessment of several criteria such as business growth, feedback scores from trainees and results from their training audits.

“The RTITB Partner Achievement Awards 2016 were created to reward forklift truck training providers for their dedication to high quality training,” says Laura Nelson, Managing Director of RTITB, the UK’s leading workplace transport training accrediting body.

Craig Hillam from Shield Health & Safety says “Being shortlisted for the Partner Achievement Award has emphasised the determination the team at Shield has, in achieving a high standard when it comes to machine training. We are humbled by the fact that we have been trading for only a short time and yet have been recognised by our accrediting body, the RTITB in achieving this nomination. We look forward to celebrating with the other nominations soon.”

The results of the awards were announced at the finale of the RTITB Partner Conference held at The Mere Golf Resort in Knutsford, Cheshire. The winner of this prestigious award received a luxury, all-inclusive holiday for two to Barbados. The first runner up received £2000 worth of shopping vouchers and third prize got £1000 shopping voucher.

“The winners will gain recognition and acclaim from the industry,” says Laura.  “However, we will also celebrate the hard work and commitment to quality training that all our RTITB partners provide.”
