Colin also covered Equipment Inspections including a practical forklift session, Current Legislation, Asbestos Awareness, Training and Qualifications and GDPR. A practical session with the delegates was carried out where they completed a Risk Assessment and Method Statement.

Alongside the Health & Safety Seminar other  delegates were attending a PASMA / Mobile Tower Course, run by Britannia Safety Training LTD. This is a one day course split into a theory and practical session.
