BHC Apprentices Hard at Work

Apprentices Health and Safety Module

This week, BHC’s group of first year apprentices have been hard at work on their Health and Safety module. 

The module forms part of the BCSA (British Constructional Steelwork Associations) CRAFT Fabricator Welder Apprenticeship Scheme. The scheme will guide the apprentices through various aspects of the job including marking, cutting and assembling steel components whilst being overseen by experienced Fabricator Welders.

Currently, our apprentices are working on their Health and Safety module which includes; demonstrating good working practices to reduce exposure to hazards, how to carry out work safely and the importance of leaving the workplace in a safe and tidy condition.

BHC will be hiring a new group of apprentices this Summer and will be holding our annual Apprentice Open Day on the 12th June 2019.

Applicants wishing to attend the Apprentice Open Day must register their interest by e-mailing Nicola Young – .

BHC would like to thank everyone that made the effort to attend our Apprenticeship Open Day in June.

Following the success of the day, we have hired 17 apprentices for our manufacturing workshop. The group included Apprentice CNC Operatives, Fabricator Welders, Industrial Spray Painters and Platers.

The apprenticeship is a modular based training course that is completed within the workplace. The modules will be used to guide the apprentices through the various aspects of the role e.g. the Fabricator Welders will gain experience in the role of marking, cutting and assembling steel components with the assistance of those who have the skills and experience to guide them.

On completion of the apprenticeship, employees will be awarded the BCSA CRAFT Apprenticeship.
