Charity residents get invited for a tour of BAE systems by ISG

Three of our Recycling Lives Charity Residents; John, Lewis & David successfully completed their work experience with ISG last month. Following this Tony Dougan, the Project Manager from ISG, very kindly invited all seven of our Residents for a tour of the BAE site at Warton.

ISG are the main contractor at BAE, they are currently engaged in a number of construction projects at their Warton and Salmesbury sites. They are supporting the Recycling Lives Charity by offering work placements and a Basic Site Awareness training session with all the Charity Residents. Recycling Lives are also ISG’s waste management contractor therefore all site waste is processed at the Recycling Lives Waste Management plant.

During their site visit on Friday 18th November each of the Charity Residents got the opportunity to meet the ISG staff and talk to them about how they carry out the planning and coordination of works for BAE. John, a Charity Resident, said “it was really interesting to learn how ISG support BAE systems”.

By the end of their visit the residents gained a high level of site awareness and good insight into Health and Safety practices when working on such a prestigious site as BAE systems. Lewis, a Charity Resident, said “when I’m ready for employment it would be good to work in such an organized and busy company, I have always wanted to have a look around BAE systems”.

After the site visit Neil Flanagan, Recycling Lives Operations and Training Manager, added “The Residents thoroughly enjoyed their site visit and are very thankful for the opportunity to attend ISG, this offered our residents another insight into the work that goes on within ISG”.
