Our last NVQ post, ‘Insight to Industry‘, saw a catch-up with Wilson & Scott’s newest apprentice, Ethan Wheatley. Since then, Ethan has been continuing on with his hard work and commitment to learning the job to achieve his NVQ.

Last week, under the watch of Chris Freer, Ethan carried out some car park lining in Bristol. This job included hatching, parking bays, disabled bays and EV bays. Uniquely, the client had requested that the disabled bays should be white thermoplastic, as opposed to yellow.

Ethan has consistently showed dedication to his job, which clearly reflects in the level of work that he puts out. This can be seen in a video from the site: Disabled Bay Marking

During the winter months, it is no surprise that the nation’s roads can come under some strain. Not only is winter driving more challenging for the country’s motorist, road conditions worsen at this time of year. With rain, ice, and cold temperatures, road surfaces are prone to crack; road markings fade. Therefore, at this time of year, Wilson & Scott undertake a wide range of Maintenance and Repair jobs.

One of these such works I recently visited was a contract from National Highways, on the A36. Our crews, supervised by Russell Small, carried out a variety of tasks to ensure that the trunk road continued to safely serve the local residents. Some of the work that was going on included handwork, joint sealing, and machining the edge and centre lines of the carriageway. Routine maintenance such as this provides a critical service to local communities, keeping the country moving.

As a company, we continue to strive for excellence in all aspects of our work. While marking in the new year, a range of training has been taking place across the board at Wilson & Scott. This ensures that all of our people (operatives and office personnel alike) are well equipped for the roles they do.

Last week, all Chargehands and Experiences Second Men attended the CITB SSSTS. The Supervisor Safety Training Scheme is a two day course that provides delegates with Site Supervisory roles. It also gives the knowledge required to aide in safely managing a site.

Moreover, all of our people have undertaken a ‘fit for work’ assessment. The Safety Critical Assessment makes sure that everyone who works for Wilson & Scott is safe to do their jobs.
