FeRFA, the Resin Flooring Association, has received an award for two of its technical guidance documents.
Presented by the CITB (Construction Industry Training Board) the Growth Fund Recognition Award was given for FeRFA’s best practice guidance on Measuring and Managing the Level of Slip Resistance provided by Resin Floors and Static Controlled Flooring.
Slip-resistant and static dissipative systems are a highly specialist area of resin flooring in terms of technical and skill of application but are widely used due to the health and safety requirements in the working environments of both industrial and commercial buildings.
New testing methods and changes to British Standards make it very important for resin flooring contractors to have up to date guidance on systems and application methods to meet the changing standards and specific client requirements.
The award recognises FeRFA’s valuable contribution towards meeting current and future construction industry training and skills needs.
FeRFA’s documents help support the work it does in raising the professional skills of the workforce through apprenticeships, upskilling courses, NVQs, and newly launched for this year – it’s eLearning programme.
Training support is available for all ages and all skill levels, including those new to the industry as well as more experienced workers.
Through the CITB Growth Fund, the CITB encourages and supports collaborative working across the industry to ensure the right people with the rights skills are equipped to meet the future skills demands of specialist sectors such as resin flooring.
