Safetech – First Aid TrainingChamber Member Safetech let us know that from the 1st of September there will be a new accrediting body for first aid – PHECC. If you are considering sending employees on first aid training there are considerable savings to be made by doing so before 1st September. Likewise, if your employees are due to refresh their first aid training before the end of 2017, it may be worthwhile considering refreshing early on a one day refresher course rather than having to do a two day refresher course at an extra cost.For a full list of these, please visit http://www.safetech.ie/sp/courses/scheduleIf you have any questions on the above, please contact Suzanne Love, Marketing Co-ordinator, Tel: +353 74 91 27786 marketing@safetech.iewww.safetech.ie 3.
