The training made me think about the records I keep and what I may have written that could have been misinterpreted
I found the training very helpful and it helped me gain a better understanding of why we keep all the different kinds of records we do and how this links to the legislation, standards and codes
I now have a much better idea of what I can write in contact sheets and what I shouldn’t write
