At this time of year, when our attention turns from our normal day-to-day towards Christmas, the EEF Training Team have taken a look at the Health and Safety policies Father Christmas needs to follow.

We are one of the UK's leading providers of training programmes in business improvement techniques, health and safety, environmental management, employment law, management and supervisory skills and personal development. Our training ranges from open courses - available at our training centres across the country - to bespoke programmes tailored around your requirements. From recruiting and training apprentices, to diagnosing management development requirements or coaching your Board, our comprehensive training service, delivered by experts in their fields, has everything you need to develop talent and deliver bottom-line results whilst offering superb value for money.

As we all start to wind down and get ready for the Christmas break, the EEF Team have given some thought to the Health and Safety issues that Father Christmas is likely to encounter.   When you consider regional variations in when presents are exchanged, time zones and travel plans, at best, Father Christmas faces a 31 hour working day on Christmas Eve.  Add in pitched roofs, snow, ice and consuming mince pies and sherry as tips and you have a recipe for accidents.  We have looked at what Santa should be doing to stay safe this Christmas.
