CFB Risk Management provides risk management services to the high-hazard private sector.
Contracts with blue-chip companies in the oil and gas, petrochemical, and nuclear sectors are taking it towards a £2m turnover and all profits go into community projects that improve safety for Teesside residents.
The college will provide the training, with successful applicants gaining qualifications including BTEC, Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH) and International Trauma Life Support (ITLS).
Initially, ten Apprentice Site Protection Officers on 18-month fixed term contracts will be recruited and the successful applicants will complete a three-month training course before joining an on-site protection team and working towards an NVQ qualification through the College.
Ian Hayton, Managing Director at CFB Risk Management, said successful applicants would “play a key part in the emergency response to site incidents, including the rescue of site personnel, provision of first aid and general security.
“They will also be responsible for the testing and maintenance of equipment as well as taking an active role in reviewing risk assessments.
College principal Darren Hankey said: “This partnership with CFB Risk Management is an innovative one, and one which will lead to the employment of ten apprentices.”
