Prestigious training award for Corus
Corus and Ashorne Hill Management College have won a UK National Training Award in the category of ‘Collaboration and Partnerships’ for their Felt Leadership Programme.
The prestigious accolade was presented at a ceremony held at the National Motorcycle Museum in the West Midlands on 1 October. Having previously scooped a Regional Training Award, receiving the national prize provides official external recognition for an exceptional training programme which has seen more than 1,800 Corus staff trained.
The Felt Leadership Programme gives employees responsibility for managing their own safety improvements by concentrating on leadership behaviours. The programme is interactive and employee driven to ensure maximum engagement.
There is evidence of the programme’s success in that accidents have reached their lowest ever level across all Corus sites. Sean Lyons, Site Director at Corus Scunthorpe said: “Together, Ashorne Hill and my steelmaking team have broken significant new ground by introducing an effective means of giving employees more authority and responsibility for managing their own safety. The programme has given fresh impetus and dynamism to our ultimate goal of eliminating accidents completely.”
