The annual REHIS Seminar for Trainers
The annual REHIS Seminar took place on the 16th May 2007 in the Apex Hotel in Dundee and, as ever, this proved to be a popular event with 126 trainers attending. The Seminar provided an up-date on new food safety and health and safety legislation and developments in the areas of food and health and safety. The event was chaired by Martin Henry, REHIS Council member for Community Training. The early part of the morning concentrated on food safety legislation and enforcement issues with presentations from Ian McGruther, REHIS Training Adviser and Bob Drummond, Ch.EHO from Angus Council. After the break Clare Ireland, Ch.EHO also from Angus Council gave an update on Health and Safety legislation and the morning concluded, with a presentation by Peter Midgeley, on current issues being dealt with at the Food Standards Agency Scotland. Workshop sessions were held in the afternoon. These were very well received by the delegates and the Institute is very grateful to all participants for the valuable feed-back given following the workshops.
