Steve Smith has joined the team at Develop Training Limited as a Senior Consultant for confined spaces
Steve brings considerable experience in the industry to the role which will involve overhauling the Confined Spaces training programme for the business as well as overseeing the trainers who will deliver it.
It’s an exciting time for DTL, who are taking on a number of new staff in strategic roles.
“The industry is changing and developing all the time,” explained CEO, Chris Wood. “We need to respond by making sure we can deliver the best and most up to date training and apprenticeships so that our customers can be confident their staff are competent and skilled to the right standards.
“Appointed people like Steve, who can bring wide ranging experience from the sector is an important part of our commitment to meet our customer’s needs.”
Steve’s background includes both ‘on the tools’ experience gained predominantly with Severn Trent, and training and consultancy.
“I got involved in training fairly early on in my career,” he said. “When I worked for Severn Trent I involved myself in delivering the internal training programme. I felt really passionate about it – especially Health and Safety Training. It’s just so important to keep people safe.”
Steve is looking forward to the challenge of taking forward Develop’s training in this area.
“Things are changing in the industry,” he said “and Develop is enthusiastic about responding to that. I’m looking forward to refreshing what we offer and to ensuring the training we deliver is of the very highest standard.”
