This week’s training news

Safe driving handout

More than 11,500 company car drivers at Johnson & Johnson have been
given a CD-ROM as part of the firm’s Safe Fleet scheme. The company is hoping to
improve employee safety and the first CD covers winter driving and includes a
safe vehicle checklist. IT has been produced by DriveTech and distributed to
staff in the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Work first aid on the up

St John Ambulance has increased its first aid training in the workplace by
10 per cent on last year. More than 250,000 staff received training in the
workplace, highlighting the increased emphasis on safety at work. The charity,
which trains 500,000 people in first aid every year, is urging companies to
sign up to a first aid at work course.

Smugglers targeted

Latvian police, customs officers and prosecutors have undergone an intensive
training programme co-ordinated by a British firm. More than 60 staff have been
trained by Espin Forest in an attempt to reduce corruption in the Baltic state.
The country is struggling with low-level corruption and smuggling, so the EU
has stepped in to fund the initiative.
