Galliford Try Deliver Top Class Heath & Safety Training Day to Support the Jericho Foundation

Galliford Try Training day 1 smaller
The Jericho Foundation enjoyed a truly valuable Health & Safety Training Day recently, delivered by FTSE 250 house-building and construction group Galliford Try.

“Challenging Beliefs Affecting Behaviours” was the theme for the day and the interactive course was delivered by two of Galliford’s senior Healthy & Safety managers, Richard Scott and Kerry-Anne Ellis. A total of 25 staff and apprentices who currently work for Jericho Construction were in attendance.

Jericho Construction is one of Birmingham-based Jericho Foundation’s eight social enterprises which provide training, work experience and employment to disadvantaged local people – many of whom are apprentices. Each social enterprise is committed to sustainability and delivering social value – fundamental values which Galliford Try also embraces.

Richard Scott said “Galliford Try’s vision is to be leaders in the construction of a sustainable future and our core values are excellence, passion, integrity and collaboration. We were delighted to deliver this useful training as part of a new partnership between Jericho and Galliford Try. We look forward to further assisting Jericho in their social mission, through the provision of targeted construction-related training and mentoring”.

Jericho Construction’s Business Manager Andy Jones said: “It was great to have the whole team together engaging in safety topics. Health & Safety training is not always at the top of a construction worker’s “to-do” list! However, we felt the effect of this practical training was felt almost immediately. It enhanced everybody’s understanding of Health & Safety and produced further improvement in the Health & Safety culture of the Construction Team.”

The Jericho Foundation breaks down barriers in society and supports disadvantaged people to become fulfilled, skilled and employed. We work with a broad variety of deprived people who are struggling – young people, ex-offenders, homeless people and victims of modern slavery. We provide work experience or paid employment in our environmentally-friendly social enterprises. Alongside this, we deliver a holistic package of support, guidance and training which is tailored to each client’s personal needs.
