Tuffa Tanks puts First Responders in the community

Uttoxeter-based bulk liquid storage tank manufacturer Tuffa Tanks has always been keen to invest in its people and to be an important part of the local community and, recently, team members Andrew Oxley, Lee Hopkinson, Alfie Pennington, Nick Fitzgerald, Kev Whitehurst, Matthew Barker, and Aaron Whitehurst all successfully completed their First Responders training.

James Shenton, managing director at Tuffa UK, commented: “Tuffa has always taken pride in investing in our people.  We are an established family business in Uttoxeter, and it’s critical to our culture to invest not only in our people but that we offer something back to the wider community.”

Incredibly valuable

Kerry Shenton, Tuffa’s general manager, added: “If you have an emergency medical situation in the community, I’m not sure seeing any of our fabulous team rushing to your aid wearing steel toe capped boots, and a high viz jacket would, at first glance, fill you with confidence, but the whole team worked incredibly hard to not only complete the course but to excel at it.”

James concluded: “The first responder course is incredibly valuable for several reasons.  Beyond the fact that any team member could intervene or assist in an incident, either at work or in the community, continued development is critical in providing professional nourishment to our incredible workforce”.
