Flannery co-hosts Balfour Beatty VINCI Safety Week

Flannery are pleased to co-host Balfour Beatty VINCI Safety Week in our purpose-built facility Operator Skills Hub this week. In line with our safety-first culture, the Flannery team conducted a range of various sessions focusing on the importance of health, safety and wellbeing in the construction industry.

Clement, Balfour Beatty VINCI Survey Manager, said: “As part of today’s program, we had six different safety activities, including PPI session with Flannery plant trainer. The knowledge on how to approach the machine safely and how to prevent risk situations on site is a ‘must-have’ for everyone who is related to the construction industry.”

“I personally was very impressed with the Flannery simulators and the way how they help to learn and stay safe during the first stages when learning how to operate the plant. The combination of simulator technology plus training with real diggers is remarkable.”

Paul Allman, Flannery Director, commented: “It’s great to be involved with a team of professionals from across the industry. In collaboration with Balfour Beatty VINCI, we helped to conduct six different safety sessions including Utility Zone training, PPI, excavation and simulator familiarisation.”
