Trainee Nannozi (pictured above, left) said: “We’re going to take on what we have learnt, but the benefits are not only limited to us as trainees as they will have an impact on those around us in our companies. The lessons will be applied daily and there is also going to be an impact in how we deliver to all our different clients.”
Training ‘adds value to your career’
Fellow trainee Allen Magero, from Njeru Technical Services, thanked Total for “giving me this opportunity” to attend the training.
She said: “The instructors were so good. I learnt a lot about work-at-height health and safety, how to erect an independent scaffold and a cantilever, how to do housekeeping and how to use PPE.

“I’ve benefited from the training and will be able to pass on what I have learnt to my colleagues at work. I also want to encourage more people to apply for such programmes, especially women, because it is beneficial and adds value to your career.”
The training was designed to equip trainees with the skills and knowledge needed to work in the oil and gas sector.
TASC said the training will help minimise the risks and injuries associated with working at height. It added that scaffolding and work-at-height training are “crucial for safeguarding workers, complying with regulations, and improving efficiency” and that it is an “essential investment for any industry where employees work at height to ensure the wellbeing of the workforce”.
