Details for Contribute to health and safety of self and others

"WHS is boring" I hear you say?  Well I won't try and tell you it's the most riveting unit you'll do... BUT if you ask the guitarist who had a lighting rig fall on his head during a rehearsal, or ask the veteren drummer about his substantial hearing loss... WHS suddenly seems a little more important.  In fact, it's crucial, hence the reason it's a core unit!  This unit will help you gain the knowledge and skills to function safely in the world of music, musical equipment and music performance.
