GRF specialises in workplace compliance. Three CNG team members are now the proud recipients of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health certificate. This means Saski, Shaun and Ashley are now fully conversant in CNG’s Health and Safety Requirements and are able to train other team members to adhere to the various rules and regulations that keep CNG compliant.

Gale Filburn of GRF Associates said: “CNG takes the health and safety of its employees so seriously, they have trained three staff to take responsibility and make sure they are armed with up to date stats and figures when carrying out induction and health and safety training.

“We were asked to deliver the training, which looked at the broad and complex range of subjects in relation to health and safety.  Three team members passed, with two achieving Merits for the Ofqual regulated Chartered Institute of Environmental Health course.” 

CNG MD Jacqui Hall said: “GRF delivered exactly what we needed, equipping some of our team with the vital skills and knowledge required to keep a fast-growing team safe in the workplace. We will no doubt look to have more team leaders trained in the future to ensure we can remain compliant and vigilant as we grow.”
