SGB training wins NFB seal of approval:
SGB has been awarded approved trainer status by the National Federation of Builders (NFB), the UK’s leading building trade body.
SGB and the NFB are both influential, long-standing organisations within the industry, but this is the first time that the Federation has formally endorsed SGB’s services to its members.
Representing the nation’s small to medium sized building firms, the NFB provides practical solutions, professional advice and real savings for its 1,800 members, representing a vast proportion of total UK construction output, with NFB members carrying out approximately 250,000 separate building projects last year.
SGB, an acknowledged leader in safe work at height, has developed a comprehensive range of safety training courses tailored to meet the needs of all contractors, both large and small. Approved trainer status was granted following a request from the NFB board and a presentation by SGB to the Federation’s regional training team.
June Davis, NFB Training Manager, comments: “we are very excited to be working together with SGB to deliver quality training to our members. SGB’s track record on health and safety is a testament to their own internal training program and we hope to promote this high standard across the industry”.
SGB has now put together a programme of courses tailored specifically for NFB members. “This is a positive move forward for everyone”, comments David Johnson, Managing Director, SGB Hire & Sale. “ The developing relationship between SGB and NFB should provide a growing number of training opportunities for all.”
