A relaxed, yet informative seminar designed to help small business, charities and those working in the voluntary sector stay safe, and on the right side of the law! This session will adopt a grounded and pragmatic approach, dispel a few health and safety myths and provide those attending with valuable hints and tips on promoting and maintaining the health, safety and welfare of everyone in the workplace.

As a small business, we recognise that there are often conflicting priorities and with only so many hours in the working day regularly see health and safety slipping down the agenda little. Do you need to know more about Health & Safety?

Is LOLER just a showgirl, why would you want a COSHH in the workplace, what on an earth is a WRULD and who is PAT?
