    Laila Bassett - Safety Graduate

    “ As a safety graduate, I have been given numerous training opportunities, providing me the chance to develop a large array of skills. I have also been involved in many projects, which has allowed me to build productive working relationships with senior level staff.

    The stand out feature of the programme is the support provided so that I feel prepared to tackle any task assigned to me. This has been an invaluable experience that I would recommend to any safety graduate.”
