South Gloucestershire and Stroud College (SGS) will be opening the doors at its Berkeley Green Campus on Thursday December 14 for a series of workshops and presentations on the latest legal Health & Safety obligations for businesses.

Attendees will also be able to develop a training plan for their business based on a training needs analysis.
Workshops and presentations will include:
• Health & Safety Compliance – NEBOSH

The importance of Health & Safety standards in the workplace has never been more apparent, with the government’s Health & Safety Executive publishing figures that show over 600,000 workplace injuries recorded in 2016/17, along with a staggering 31.2 million working days lost due to injuries or illness.
George Ridd, Site Director at SGS Berkeley GREEN believes the event will be beneficial to businesses in the region in addressing this: “It’s vital that businesses keep up-to-date with the latest Health & Safety legislation, and get the right kind of training and support for their employees.
