The Customer in Focus
The essential for us is to have the customer in focus in all of our safety courses. This means among other things that the courses doesn’t have to be hold at the Riwal departments, but can be hold at your job sites and with your own equipment. We do this in order to make the course as realistic as possible compared to their daily work. Peter Olsen, the senior instructor at Riwal Safety Training, with several years of experience with safety advising says: “Riwal Safety Training makes 100% customer-customized training. The customers’ needs to be educated in the exact tasks and challenges they face in their daily working routine. This is why we use the learning method – train as your work. And this is why we give the customers the opportunity to have the courses at their own company site and with their own equipment.”
