We Are Proud to Announce the AccuGrit Team Is to Undertake the City & Guilds Winter Service Operations, Supervision and Monitoring training course.

In an industry first, AccuGrit is once again leading the way among Winter Maintenance Service Providers by announcing the deployment of a staff development programme that will see employees undertake the City & Guilds Winter Service Operations, Supervision and Monitoring training course.

This programme has been developed to ensure that Winter Service Supervisors are assessed against health and safety, plus other duties related to delivering effective winter service operations. This unit is a stand-alone unit available aimed at those involved in the supervision and monitoring of winter service operations.

The qualification will assess our team’s skills and ability across various skills such as:

  • Current Health and Safety Legislation related to winter service operations
  • Vehicles and equipment checks and defect reporting
  • Winter service vehicles and equipment.
  • Rates of spread for de-icing materials.
  • Emergency procedures
  • Drivers hours and working time
  • Environmental considerations
  • Terminology
  • Winter service policy
  • Winter service operational planning and monitoring
  • Methods to decision making
  • Qualifications available for Winter Service Operations
  • Data logging

The course has predominantly been developed for staff working for the Highways Agency, National Assembly for Wales, and local authorities responsible for the direct supervision and operating of winter service vehicles and snow blowers.

However, as a winter maintenance services provider with innovation in the heart of our business, we feel it is as important as a private company to go above and beyond for customers and continually seek opportunities to exceed expectations. Therefore, this course will allow us to achieve excellence by creating higher standards for managing and supervising all our operations at client sites.

Please keep your eyes peeled over the next few weeks as we keep you updated as our team embark on the training.
