Last call for the LCE H&S Basics For Employees – 27th September

Same great course, just a brand new name!

This varied one day course is run on a monthly basis here in the LCE Training Academy and is one of our most popular H&S training courses!


This intensive 1 day course covers all the basic training requirements for new and existing employees – all rolled in to one cost effective course:

  • Manual handling
  • Fire safety & Fire extinguisher use
  • Computer workstation set up
  • Safety awareness & safety legislation for employees

The LCE H&S basics for employees ticks all the boxes to cover induction and training for any new employees or indeed anyone that needs refresher training. This course would be of interest to all from the self-employed, to the local retailer to the large multinational – if in doubt, give us a shout!

At only €135 per person, this is the most cost effective way of ensuring employees receive the training they need. In addition, there is a 10% discount if you have 2 or more attending from the same company on the same day!

EAP Don Maurice

Plans were advanced to design a new model of Employee Support Services (ESPs) for Ireland and the other 27 member states of the EU. For the time being, the United Kingdom (UK) remains a full member of the EU and rights and obligations continue to fully apply in and to the UK. It is expected that an agreement for the UK to leave the EU will be concluded by the 29th of March 2019.

The plans completed by Maurice Quinlan and Don Jorgensen took place at The Bishop’s Palace Waterford, Ireland on Saturday 25th of August 2018 and include the development of a high value reference manual on ESP’s which will be presented in a series of seminars in Ireland in the Autumn of 2020.

The challenge for the Employee Assistance Profession in the EU is to develop compliance-based programmes for employers which will meet EU Directives, Regulations and National Health and Safety obligations in their respective countries.
