Training and Evolving at The Lapa Company in 2016

As 2016 progresses at rapid pace The Lapa Company have been ensuring the team are on top of their qualifications and that we have everything we need in place to give our customers the best service possible!

As a company we are continuing to grow and the business that started out in Craigs spare room is now situated in a large building and showroom with ever increasing staff and customers. With this in mind we are pleased to have taken the next step of working with the Natwest Mentor scheme - a great opportunity for a growing company to receive advice, support and protection for employment law & HR, health & safety and environmental management.

Our workshop team have also been hard at work and in recent weeks have updated their qualifications in Forklifts, Chainsaws, Heights & Stepladders and Manual Handling! Going into our busiest period of the year it's great to know they continue to be comfortable and confident in the work they do for us.

Big congratulations also to our workshop manager Simon who has just passed his SMSTS qualification - Site Management Safety Training Scheme. This course was devised to assist site managers in developing develop their knowledge, awareness and understanding of their legal, moral and social responsibilities in respect of health, safety and welfare on construction sites.

And not to forget our office team who are updating their skills with further internal training alongside learning a brand new customer relationship system that will allow us to provide even greater service. Well done team.
