Fine Tubes, a world-leading manufacturer and global distributor of precision tubes for critical applications has partnered with City College Plymouth to ensure that all of its Plymouth-based staff engaged in manual handling receive professional training.

Injuries caused by poor moving and handling practices account for approximately one third of all work-related injuries and with a wide range of activities within the Fine Tubes facility requiring moving and handling, the provision of high quality training was viewed as essential.

As Dave Richardson, Fine Tubes' Health, Safety and Environment Manager, commented: "Health and safety is high on the agenda at Fine Tubes and our employees are our most valuable asset. This is the main reason behind bringing in a professional training company to ensure that we roll out this training to all targeted employees who, without it, may be put at a higher level of risk. We are pleased to be working with City College Plymouth on this bespoke programme and look forward to a working relationship that will lead on to other training for our employees".

Sean Gibson, Key Account Manager at City College Plymouth, added: "City College Plymouth has worked in partnership with Fine Tubes for a number of years. When they approached us about specific training to support their staff, the College delivery teams familiarised themselves with the company's facilities and ways of working in order to build an understanding of the training needed. This ensured that we could provide the company with a programme of training that suited their individual business needs and will benefit over 200 of their employees".
