OLBC Training Centre

OLBC standards are taught from first principles

OLBC has a directly employed workforce who undergo continuous training at our own 140m2 training facility in Wandsworth. This continuous programme of training is as vital to our effectiveness onsite as it is for individual staff development.

Whilst this does involve dedicated H&S training the emphasis is on organisation and teamwork that we believe is vital to effectively delivering high quality projects. We also believe that this approach enhances health and safety onsite by focusing on the combined effect the team has on the working environment.

Foremen are trained to the nationally recognised SSSTS qualification & managers are trained to the nationally recognised SMSTS qualification. All of our managers and foremen are currently undergoing training for NEBOSH to reinforce our self inspection and audit regime.

OLBC is developing, in collaboration with The Construction Industry Training Board, a nationally recognised qualification for basement excavation.
