The EUSR Coil Trailer Awareness course provided by Groundforce Training was very well received. It highlighted the actual dangers and risks of working around a trailer and coil that is under tension. The recent fatality our industry experienced involving a coil trailer has “brought home” the risks involved in working with and around materials and plant. Operatives can easily become complacent. Completing this course provided valuable lessons learned and acted as a sharp reminder to all that attended, proving that there are risks of fatalities, serious injuries and harm associated with all activities and plant on site,  Not only the noisy, large pieces of plant.

The team at Groundforce explained exactly what was to be covered in the training and the communication prior to the course commencing was seamless. Excellent course, covering all aspects of shoring in excavations without overcomplicating things. Our Groundforce Training Instructor Mark Ibbotson was well versed and knowledgeable and managed to respond to all questions and queries thrown at him by the troops. Would highly recommend Groundforce Training to any utility/ civil company.

From the first minute Mr Walker was welcoming, warm, enthusiastic and obviously extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of the shoring industry. His experience, delivered in a no nonsense all-inclusive way, put all the attendees at ease from the get go. He imparted the information to all in a way that was easy to understand, encouraged all to participate  and led the course in such a way that the delegates were eager to offer opinion, keen to answer and, in my experience, anxious to learn. Something sadly lacking from the vast majority of courses on offer to the construction industry in this country today.
