The REHIS Health and Safety Update and Food Update Courses were presented in the Holiday Inn Edinburgh Hotel, Edinburgh during October. These events proved to be as popular as ever with over 110 delegates participating over both days. The Health and Safety Course covered Emerging Issues from the HSE, LPG Bulk Tank Inspections, Gas Safety, FAI associated with adventure activities, Noise at Work and Respiratory Protective Equipment . The Food Update Course, presented in partnership with the Food Standards Agency Scotland as part of the Agency’s Low Cost Training Initiative covered presentations on defending food and drink followed by a workshop on Threat Assessment Critical Control Points, an update from the Food Standards Agency, presentations on Novel Foods, the FSA Foodborne Disease Strategy and a focus on listeria . REHIS takes this opportunity to thank the course presenters, session chairmen, partner organisations and, of course, the delegates for their active participation.
