The Public Sector is responsible for a large and varied property portfolio, therefore having robust procedures in place to comply with statutory building responsibilities is crucial to avoiding disasters.
Effective Premises Compliance Audits is a practical and informative course giving you the opportunity to carry out a mock premises compliance audit, which will help you identify risks to health and safety and demonstrate compliance with the statutory regulations.
Attend to gain the necessary skills to avoid fines, legal and regulatory action. Leave the day confident that you and your organisation are compliant with health and safety regulations.
