Enfield-based heritage and restoration contractor Lilstone is this year’s winner of the THSP Training Award for its commitment to training its staff.

Lilstone has been a customer of health & safety consultant THSP Risk Management since 2010, and as well as being a Business Safe customer (THSP’s annual health & safety service) it has undertaken a wide range of training every year.  

Over the past 12 months the firm’s employees have attended courses covering asbestos awareness, first aid, PASMA mobile towers and CITB site supervision, among others.

Lilstone is a family-run restoration and building company based in Enfield, Essex. A member of Stone Federation Great Britain, it started out as a restoration subcontractor in 1997, maintaining historic structures across London and the home counties.

Over the past 20 years it has built its business up on the guiding principles of good management and a strong collaborative relationship with its team of skilled tradesmen. That, it says, has been key to the successful delivery of complex and demanding projects.

THSP presents awards annually to its customers who not only invest in training their staff but have a strong sense of a duty of care towards their people. 

Brian Coyle, Managing Director of Lilstone, received this year’s Training Award trophy from Chris Ivey, Consultant Director for Health & Safety at THSP. 

Richard Scola, Contracts Manager at Lilstone, said: “THSP are the best!  Our employees come back with good knowledge. When we book training with THSP we know that our employees will learn something of value and aren’t just attending for a certificate.”

Handing over the award, Chris Ivey said: “It’s a real pleasure to be giving this customer our top Training Award as Lilstone really deserve to be recognised for the support of their staff’s training needs. 

“These awards recognise the investment in time and money made by Lilstone on behalf of their employees and demonstrate the value that Lilstone place on their wellbeing.”
