HART BIOLOGICALS has celebrated 12 members of its team completing a comprehensive risk management systems training programme.

The training was provided by local company Amacus Ltd and was developed in order to allow in-house staff to understand the application of ISO 31000 Risk Management Systems within the workplace and to support quality compliance across all departments.

The company has completed a number of training initiatives in the past year to upskill its staff, putting 20 members of the team through the Train the Trainer programme.

Keighley Larkin, Head of Hart’s Technical Department who attended the training, said: “Because we are continuously developing and growing as a team, it’s extremely important that we are consistent across all of our departments especially when it comes to quality compliance.

“We have always been a quality focused company and quality certification such as the ISO 31000 gives our customers the reassurance that all of our systems fulfil set requirements, also complying with European Union legislation.

“The course delivered by Amacus was a well-structured training programme that really got staff up-to-speed about the quality standard.

“We’re really looking forward to putting our knowledge into practice across all departments.”

The 12 employees all received their certificates from Amacus to say they had successfully completed the course.

Sarah Ainslie, Business Development Manager at Amacus, said: “We were delighted that Hart invited us to support their ongoing staff development programme, upskilling twelve members of their team to understand the application of ISO 31000 Risk Management Systems within the workplace. Given the specialist nature of the training the ISO 31000 was certified by the British Standards Institute.

“We are particularly delighted that feedback from the delegates indicated that the training was highly rated and importantly that learning would be embedded in the workplace by sharing what they had learnt with colleagues and across departments and operational functions.

“By applying learning in this practical way, it will assist and strengthen decision making and add value to the existing management of quality systems within the organisation”
