First-class new facility to provide occupational health training

Tarmac, a CRH Company and the UK’s leading sustainable building materials and construction solutions business, has opened a dedicated new occupational health and wellbeing facility for its employees.

The new training facility is located at Tarmac’s National Skills and Safety Park training facility in Nottinghamshire. It focuses on physical, interactive, and visual learning, designed with the sole purpose of educating employees on how to stay safe on the jobsite.

Tarmac’s National Skills and Safety Park provides practical, hands-on safety training for apprentices, graduates and other recruits who are retraining from other sectors. The company recognised the increasing importance of occupational health and wellbeing and established the dedicated facility to help increase the volume of specialist training it can deliver to its 7000-strong workforce.

From practical demonstrations of the effects of unsafe working practices to explanations about how dust masks can protect colleagues in later years, the facility has been creatively and thoughtfully designed to take employees through an interactive and experiential occupational health journey. It also offers a dedicated ‘quiet space’ for employees and trainees to focus and relax.

Safety is a fundamental priority for CRH and our ambition is to support a culture of safety and wellness towards achieving zero harm in the workplace.
