Daltons Wadkin Sales Director Andy Walsh added, “This approval confirms our position as one of the leading woodworking machine operator trainers in the UK and it doesn’t stop here. We have our own specialised trainers, ie ‘The Red Team’, and will have no hesitation in taking on additional trainers as work demands.  We have training materials that are second to none and incorporate health and safety information and advice in everything we do including the provision of risk assessments as required.”
