Important Health and Safety Events and Courses in 2016

health-and-safety-events

Health and safety, unlike some industries, isn’t a community of businesses in the traditional sense. It affects everyone, in every work environment, across dozens of industries and sectors. Different rules apply to different sectors, resulting in a wide range of training courses and events.

Papertrail is part of a group of organisations and companies that serve these industries; which is why we have collated this list of the most important health and safety events and training courses for the rest of 2016. We will make a list for 2017 later in the year.
