Health and safety training

IOSH Managing Safely

 “It could have been very formal and dry but we had a great mix of informative instruction but with enough debate and participation to make it both fun and educational.”

“The course itself has been really helpful and has helped develop and sort out areas of health and safety relating to our work load and has expelled some myths.”
