January 3, 2024

Powersystems UK High Voltage Specialist reaffirms its commitment to spearheading the transition to a carbon-free future with its second annual training week.

The comprehensive training program, conducted for all 106 staff members at the Yate head office in Bristol, aims to equip our entire workforce with the skills and knowledge required to navigate the evolving landscape of sustainable energy solutions and our unwavering commitment to making health, safety, and employee well-being our top Priority No.1.

As the global focus intensifies on mitigating the impact of climate change, Powersystems recognises the pivotal role we play as a British based company in facilitating the transition to a low-carbon and sustainable energy future in the UK.

The second annual training week serves as a cornerstone in achieving this goal, ensuring that all employees are well-versed in the latest updates on safety rules, industry standards, commercial awareness, subcontract and project management and overall best practices within the renewable energy sector.

The training sessions cover a spectrum of topics from a hot topic focus on asbestos, Occupational Health, equality and diversity, through to temporary works. Practical workshops provide hands-on experience, enabling staff members to stay ahead of the curve in implementing cutting-edge solutions for a safer, cleaner, and more sustainable future.

With a focus on fostering a culture of innovation and collaboration, the training week encourages the team to share insights and experiences, creating a dynamic learning environment. The initiative reflects Powersystems’ commitment to investing in our workforce and maintaining a high standard of expertise within the company.

To add a touch of friendly competition and camaraderie, Powersystems organized a quiz night at the start of the training week. Teams tested their knowledge across a range of topics, from general knowledge to trivia. The event not only provided an enjoyable break from the intensive training but also strengthened the bonds among colleagues.

As a special treat to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of its employees, on the first day, a snack wagon fish and chip shop was located outside the office, and on the second day delicious pizzas all round!

Chris Jenkins, Managing Director of Powersystems, emphasized the company’s commitment to sustainability, saying, “Our second annual training week reflects our dedication to driving the energy transition. By investing in the knowledge and expertise of our team, we position ourselves to lead the way in delivering sustainable and resilient energy solutions for a carbon-free future.”

The training week also serves as a platform to celebrate the achievements of the past year, reinforcing the company’s commitment to continuous improvement. Amid the training sessions, employees engage in interactive discussions about the company’s progress, milestones achieved, and the positive impact of their work in advancing the global energy transition.

Powersystems  looks ahead with enthusiasm, confident that its empowered and skilled workforce will play a pivotal role in shaping a more sustainable and environmentally conscious future.
