“We are unique in our wealth of experience in providing practical hands on flexible courses covering the key areas of harm in and around the home environment.
We explore questions such as how ageing relates to accidental injury, how the various child developmental stages can lead to accidental injury, as well as looking at what individual home assessments can do to help.”
