BACK to basics will be theme of a one-day course being run this autumn to help employers and their staff keep on top of health and safety law.

Suffolk Coastal council's environmental health team is running the event at its offices at Melton Hill, Woodbridge, on Tuesday, September 10, and a limited number of places are still available.

The Basic Health and Safety Course offers candidates the opportunity to gain a nationally recognised Chartered Institute of Environmental Health certificate.

A wide range of topics will be covered, including risk assessment, accident prevention, manual handling, first aid, protective equipment, and health and safety laws.

"Evidence shows that accidents are commonly caused by lack of knowledge or negligence," said Patricia O'Brien, cabinet member for health and safety.

"In many instances accidents can be prevented and employers, or their employees attending this course, will be shown that they have a vital role to play."
