Training firm rewarded for its healthy attitude
A PORT Talbot training company has been rewarded for its commitment to health, safety and wellbeing.
Network Training Services, which provides staff training and development in everything from manufacturing to cleaning, has been awarded a gold Small Workplace Health Award.
The Small Workplace Health Award (SWHA), supported by Public Health Wales, is a free and confidential service offered by Public Health Wales and funded by the Welsh Government, providing impartial advice on workplace health to organisations with less than 50 employees.
The firm is part of a consortium of four training businesses, each having signed up to the SWHA or to the Corporate Health Standard for those businesses with more than 50 employees.

Jeffrey Davies, technical director at Network Training Services, said: "Health, safety and wellbeing has always been high on our business agenda and we strongly believe that a happy, healthy workforce is a productive one. Being able to apply for such a sought-after recognised award has meant that our efforts have paid off."
Network Training Services has also teamed up with Port Talbot District Lions Club in providing diabetes checks to the local community.
Mr Davies added: "It's been such a fantastic 10 months leading up to the award and I'd certainly recommend any other business to get in touch with the Workplace Health Team for their chance of achieving it too.
"We were surprised at how much things had improved through small changes to the way we work.
"The support from the advisers was also fantastic and the support is completely free."
Networking Training Services' local workplace health advisor Pauline Sykes said: "I am so impressed with all the hard work carried out by the business."
