Abandoned and disused buildings can contain sharps dangers like used drug needles

The course covers legislation, contractible illnesses and diseases, prevention of injury as well as problem solving discussions with the course candidates such as identifying unexpected sites where sharps could be located and we also explore currently available equipment and its use.
