Woodworking Safety & Health Awareness Day Tuesday 13th October 2015

24 August 2015

These morning and afternoon half-day events have been organised by BWF in partnership with Didac Ltd, as a way of helping businesses like yours to control these risks at your premises. Didac Ltd are independent instructors with extensive woodworking experience and will provide practical advice on controlling woodworking health and safety risks.

The two half day sessions will help give you the knowledge you need to help you to achieve the regulatory standards at your workplace that an HSE Inspector would expect to find during a visit to check your management of health and safety risks (such as the dangerous machinery pictured).

Morning and afternoon sessions will be held on:

- Controlling safety risks (machinery and braking)

- Controlling health risks (wood dust, noise and MSD)

- Training and supervision for woodworking
