  • The training was organised, well presented, precise and to the point. The trainer made the course interesting, light hearted with humour giving the candidates time to engage with each other. The training was very much tailored to the group and the work they do, which was exactly what we were looking for. The trainer gave real life scenarios of sharps in the community which was a real eye opener to the chaps. The Trainer not only delivered an excellent course but also went out of her way to email a very useful list of products demonstrated on the course.

    Planning and Compliance Officer, City of York Council

  • This excellent training was delivered by a very engaging and well informed trainer. It was thought provoking and challenged us to examine our practices, providing a range of innovative and practical ways of improving the safety of our working environment.

    Supported Housing Manager, Blackpool Coastal Homes

  • ...As a safety professional responsible for our home maintenance and clearance teams, I was keen to ensure that all our staff that could potentially be exposed to needles, recieved suitable sharps training. Having searched for a suitable provider we decided to use Apropos. I attended the first course as a verifier and found the information given relative to our operations (as requested), delivered in an easy to understand, interactive manner that kept the operatives switched on. We now use Apropos for all our needlestick training. In the last 12 months more than 120 operatives have attended the course and feedback from staff has been excellent...

Well done and many thanks.

  • I just wanted to drop you a quick e-mail to say thank you very much for the training that was carried out at North Kesteven District Council, on Needle stick injuries yesterday. I found this extremely useful and informative as did everyone else who went from the environmental health team. The training was in my opinion carried out in a very informative and fun way. The trainer gave an extremely good lecture and her enthusiasm for the subject came off in spades. Thank you once again.

  • All Things Training has always provided great training for the West Berkshire Neighbourhood Wardens. Their sharps training sessions have always been highly informative, engaging, and interactive, and everyone who attends comes away with a thorough understanding of the subject matter. No one ever came out of an All Things Training course saying that they had been bored, which is a first !

    West Berkshire Neighbourhood Warden Manager, Sovereign Housing, South + West

  • My team were very positive about the course. One member of the team stated the course has really opened his eyes on the reality of sharps in public places, and has made him to be more cautious and vigilant when dealing with waste. Others said the course was delivered very clearly and was relevant to their line of work.
