Safety training for general motors
12 August 2008
A range of health and safety training courses is being carried out for General Motors by leading UK health and safety training consultancy, OSTAS (Occupational Safety Training and Advisory Services).
The Warwickshire-based company has trained over 100 General Motors employees at Luton where the award-winning Vivaro van is manufactured.

The majority of the courses have involved fork-lift truck training on different types of truck used at the manufacturing plant. The courses have also included harness training.
Other programmes have involved training for mobile elevated working platforms, working in confined spaces, and awareness of Legionella risks.
Martyn Quigley-Phipps, health and safety manager for General Motors Manufacturing Luton, said: “We have been very pleased with the courses. Generally we have been stepping up our health and safety training and this year we plan to put nearly 300 people through various courses.”
Anne Gibbs, managing partner of Southam-based OSTAS, said: “The work at General Motors is an illustration of our growing presence in the automotive sector where we have also been carrying out work for Ford at Dagenham.”
