Having someone as highly qualified in so many relevant and technical areas already on our staff has a number of very positive benefits to Coral Leisure and subsequently the centres we manage. The most obvious benefit, being cost savings. Modern health and safety laws in the workplace for both customers and staff mean ongoing Health & Safety Audits are required along with annual training for current staff and new staff; such as Manual Handling and Fire Warden training, all of which Gerry is qualified to instruct.
In addition to the regulatory training required, industry specific training is also required in the form of Lifeguard training, First Aid Skills and Swim Teacher Training; again all of which Gerry can provide in each of the centres across the group
The cost savings of having this service already available in house are significant. In one example for providing only some of the services Gerry could provide, one of our centres was quoted over €9,000 by outside contractors, as opposed to the cost of utilising Gerry which was €1,500. That was a saving of over €7,500 in just one year. That’s an ongoing saving annually because of an asset like Gerry Brennan on the staff at Coral Leisure.
