RHS runs first health and safety workshop

The RHS Advisory Service are running a second workshop aimed at professionals in horticulture on health and safety.

The ‘Practical Health and Safety Management for Horticultural Professionals’ day will take place on 4 December at RHS Garden Wisley. It will be led by consultant and Amenity Forum chairman John Allbutt.

The advisory service ran their first workshop for horticultural professionals in June. Gardeners from estates, historic and botanic gardeners and self employed professionals attended the ‘Tree Assessment & Woody Plant Management for Horticultural Professionals’ hosted by RHS Wisley staff Tony Gregory and Colin Crosbie.

This is the first year that the Advisory Department has organised specific workshops for professional horticulturists. They are designed to be relevant to people in a wide range of horticultural professions, including gardeners, designers and local authority staff. Participants can exchange information, update their knowledge and learn how best practice is carried out at Wisley.

To book call 0845 6121253 and quote booking ref: 5251 (weekdays 9am-5pm) or go to http://www.rhs.org.uk/RHSEventfinder/default.aspx.
