This was probably the most energising and inspiring two days “training” I have ever participated in. The course covered many legal, contractual and health and safety issues approached in a real life scenario way and I think we all went away both scared about some of the things wee were letting slip through, ignoring due to pressures or simply didn’t realise we should be doing, BUT with the knowledge and practical guidelines on how to remedy the situation.
