SMALL businesses in Norfolk are being encouraged to make their workplaces safer at training courses next month.
Organised by North Norfolk District Council (NNDC), Great Yarmouth Borough Council, Breckland Council and the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk, they will take place in Stalham and Swaffham on July 2.
Businesses that employ five to 15 people will be able to learn about health and safety management to make sure they comply with laws and keep their workplaces safe.
The courses are part of a new project aiming to make health and safety easy for employers.
