Remember H&S isn’t just about avoiding trips on loose cables. It includes things like how long you are working and the quality of your physical working environment

I’ve been doing some reading around with a view to pushing this hard in the training I do and thought I would share some of the bits and bobs I have found.

I’ll add more as I find them.
