Press Release for WrightWay open house

Exclusive, hands-on simulator training sessions are being offered by leading international training and safety consultancy, WrightWay Training, to selected members of the press and key industry representatives on 7th September at the Transas facility in Portsmouth.

Key journalists and personnel from industry are invited to take part in this one-off opportunity to see first-hand how safety and teamwork training can save money for organisations in the long term, creating greater profits, reducing the risk of injury and helping to build a more content, motivated and productive workforce.
The event on 7th September will focus on Human Performance Training, which is one of the most popular courses that WrightWay Training offers.

The highly interactive course, which uses a state-of-the-art simulator, requires delegates to work together to achieve a successful outcome, for instance, manoeuvring a cruise liner out of Southampton docks. This course concentrates on improving the attitudes and behaviours of individuals and their impact on safety. It provides the opportunity for people to examine their own behaviour and make individual decisions on how to improve their teamwork.

Human Performance Training originated in aviation and is now a vital element of training for all safety critical industries. However the principles of Human Performance Training are applicable to all business and working environments, meaning WrightWay Training’s innovative courses have applications in a diverse range of industries.
According to WrightWay Training, experience has shown that by concentrating on the elimination of unsafe acts, it is possible to eliminate occurrences with more serious and costly consequences. This requires training and culture change – WrightWay Training’s specialist areas.

Captain John Wright, Chief Executive of WrightWay Training, comments, “We help organisations to harness the enormous energy within the workforce that may previously have been untapped, to create a culture of shared ownership and cheerful accountability. This leads to improvements in safety and business performance. The results are greater profits, reduced risk of injury, a safer working environment and a happier workforce. Using these methods, in two years, one client sent 213 people home in one piece that statistically would have been injured, saved over 5,000 man days and avoided $7.5 million in direct costs.”

If you would like to experience Human Performance Training for yourself, please contact Sophie Whitaker via email on Sophie@adpr.co.uk before 26th August.

WrightWay Training was established in 2000 by founding partner and Managing Director Captain John Wright.

WrightWay Training’s team of expert consultants have a broad range of skills and experience from many industry sectors including shipping, manufacturing and defence. The team is based in the UK, though they often work overseas with WrightWay Training’s international clients.
