Health & Safety

All courses start with a Health & Safety talk-we take this seriously. You will be guided on what you need to wear (PPE) prior to starting, but safety goggles and masks will be provided along with hand cream. For those who have sensitive skin please bring along some suitable gloves-alternatively these can be purchased. You will be instructed on how to use electrical equipment for onsite and within the home environment, how to deal with cables, dust sheets, and the correct use of equipment that raises you off the ground to undertake ceilings. Once the tutor and you are happy a signature on a form is required stating the training you have received and that you are happy to proceed.
