Bachy and Bullivant join forces to launch a new training initiative

Bachy Soletanche and Roger Bullivant have announced the launch of a new company to focus on health, safety and plant operator training.

The Ground Engineering Training Solutions (Gets) facility will be based at Drakelow in Staffordshire and offer training and testing in over 75 categories of plant within the Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) and NVQ training.

The facility will serve the wider industry as well as Bachy and Bullivant’s direct employees.

Bachy group SHEQ director Andrew Carpenter said: “The launch of Gets is a truly unique and valuable opportunity for industry professionals to arm themselves with the skills and training required to ensure that their workforce is not only practicing in a safe and quality manner, but that they are also armed with skills to work in an efficient and sustainable way – ultimately increasing revenue and adopting quality assured practices that will have a positive impact for years to come.”
