Safety Harness and Lanyard Training – HS17

The Safety harness and lanyard training course is aimed at managers, supervisors, users and buyers of harnesses and fall arrest equipment.

Manual Handling Course: “I just wanted to let Sarah know that one of the participants at the client moving and handling training you delivered at Colliers Wood on the 7th November has made a point of telling me verbally how much she enjoyed the training and in particular how relevant you made it to the dialysis environment and importantly what a great trainer you are. So a big thank you from me and the team at Fresenius 🙂 ”
