Delegates will need to enter Montague House by using the wooden gate on Somerset Street. This will be open on the day. Behind the wooden gate you will find the back door into the manual handling training room.
Participants must wear appropriate clothing and flat, comfortable footwear that covers the whole of the foot as you will be actively participating in safer people handling techniques. Open toed shoes and sandals are not acceptable and you may be turned away due to health and safety reasons, which will then incur a charge.
