"Just wanted to give some feedback on the course on health and safety auditing last week.
Doug is an excellent speaker, with a great knowledge and it was a pleasure to be taught by someone that is obviously passionate about his area of expertise. The material is great, exactly right for the content and was relayed in a clear concise manner. Having the material in front of us to be able to make notes on made it very easy to understand and we were given plenty of time to ask questions.
I have done a lot of courses in the past and the health and safety ones are usually the most tedious. This course was great because doug was so personable and he made it interesting.
The hospitality and venue were good also, nice variety and good quality lunch.
please keep me informed of any courses run by Workplace Press in the future.

"I have found the WSMP audit handbooks excellent textbooks. They have been invaluable tools for the company I work for in preparing for applying for a WSMP standard with ACC." - Angela Murdoch B.W Murdoch Ltd.
"Please pass on my congratulations to Doug Hay for his excellent demonstration
of knowledge and application in this difficult area of Health and Safety management.
The day was an excellent introduction and delivery of the specifics into the role of the principal. The material was easily understood by the first timers as the longer runners in the H&S field. Whilst returning home the subject was done to death on ways to improve our internal practices and procedures. Overall an excellent forum.
I have particular praise for Doug in that I have been trying to get this message through to the various levels of management and staff for several years, it was refreshing to have some colleagues hear it from Doug as a recognised expert, and thus supporting and reinforcing my ongoing emphasis at a local level.
Well Done Doug and thank you Minty for the opportunity to attend.

"As the Health & Safety Co ordinator for Western Fire Region it is paramount that we provide our staff with top class professional training in areas of Health & Safety it is with this in mind that I contacted Associate Professor Douglas Hay (Uni OSH consultancy) to address the region's Internal Auditors in a two day WSMP training programme and a one day Principal & Contractor Health & Safety audit course for principals and contract managers.
Auditing can be a mine field of unanswered questions and problems that need to be addressed, so providing a clear direction for those who undertake the task of auditing and those who manage the Health & Safety systems within their workplace. Douglas showed clear direction in both courses to which the course attendees and myself were truly grateful."
