Napo’s H&S training course for reps in London and the South East and South West has now been opened out to members from other areas.
The event will take place on Monday 8th July to Wednesday 10th July and will be held in Room GW1 in the PCS Head Office, 160 Falcon Road, London, SW11 2NY (a couple of minutes walk from Clapham Junction train station).
The three days will cover the basics of health and safety reps duties and their rights; it will also give an introduction to relevant legislation, look at the safety structure of the NPS and CRCs and discuss probation specific case studies and issues such as stress at work.
There will be speakers; including health and safety specialists from NPS and CRCs and Napo staff speaking about their areas of responsibility that relate to health and safety.
The course is suitable for those who are thinking of becoming a safety rep, new safety reps, safety reps who want a refresher and for other Napo reps who might not want to become safety reps - but would like to have some knowledge of safety legislation.
The course programme will be broadly the same as other safety reps courses Napo has run. If you attended one of those courses you may not want to sit through the course again, but if you would like a refresher and can get the time off work/and your branch to cover expenses, you are more than welcome to attend.
Tea and coffee will be provided, but all other expenses including your travel and subsistence expenses will need to be covered by your branch.
Please contact Sarah Friday - firstname.lastname@example.org - if you are interested in attending BUT do make sure you discuss it with your line manager first, to arrange paid time off from work to attend, and also check with your branch that they will cover your expenses.
