Launches New Consumer Safety Course
innovative new course has been launched by BETA in order to help
give guidance to assistants, instructors, clubs and organsations
on all aspects of safety, protection, standards and equipment fitting.
BETA Consumer Safety Course follows on from one held in Ireland
last year which was a great success and will be offered as both
full day and evening sessions.
courses will cover all areas of safety from the medical aspects
of what equipment can do to reduce injury to the fitting of hats
and body protectors. Advice will also be given on current standards
and testing procedures for equipment.
Chief Executive and Secretary Claire Williams said: "We are
delighted to be launching this course in the UK which has arisen
from a number of requests for assistance and advice on this subject
from a wide range of riding organisations.
is a growing demand for the course from instructors, Pony Clubs
and Riding Clubs and we are looking forward to working with these
course aims to provide consumers but particularly professionals
with a basic knowledge of safety equipment and an ability to check
whether the equipment being used is up to date and fitting correctly
to meet the needs of the user.
Claire: "Attendees will also receive hands-on tuition in hat
and body protector fit checking together with information on human
physiology and principles of safety equipment."
