Same day, same great content, different time and branch! This month, instead of having a Mid Shires presentation, we are supporting @IOSH_Chiltern with their highly topical event -
Looking back on Covid "The Regulators Perspective" on 9th June at 1pm https://iosh.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJIsdOGqpj8jE9aDzXvIaYB8Po6lGycgWjI_

Its a really great feeling when you get feedback from a client that says..."Thank you for your help and support over the past few weeks with the Risk Assessments. With the right teacher, it’s incredible what you learn."

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are a significant issue, which can be caused by manual handling at work including lifting or dragging heavy or bulky loads, pushing, pulling, twisting or completing repetitive tasks. http://ow.ly/T02C50EteF7

Looking forward to this week with health, safety and environmental inspections, internal quality audit and discussing manual handling training with client. Working local, further afield and remotely by Zoom. #Health #safety #environmental #quality

Time out this lunchtime for a nice walk with Holly taking in the sun, scenery and sounds 🙏👍☀️🐥🌳
