The tutor tailors the training to the client’s needs; it is an effective way of teaching a particular organisation about substances relevant to them. The course can also cover the relevant risks that the workers will face. In comparison to a general overview, the trainer can help specific organisations implement procedures that everyone will understand, as opposed to delivering a generic course.

Delegates will be assessed through a short assessment paper at the end of the course. Delegate’s contribution will also be assessed by the tutor throughout the course.
