New Appointment Drives RRC’s Expansion Near and Far

Leading health and safety training provider, RRC, has appointed Dr David Towlson to set up and
run its new NEBOSH Level 4 block release courses. Subject to accreditation, the courses will
commence in September 2005 in the Midlands and Bahrain, thus driving RRC’s expansion
overseas and in the corporate market.


The launch of RRC’s block release courses builds on the company’s exemplary credentials and
experience as an innovative specialist in health and safety training. It is in direct response to
increased demand for a variety of health and safety training as the area becomes an ever-higher
priority on companies’ agendas. This is particularly relevant overseas, in expanding market
regions, such as the Middle East, which is why RRC will be offering a full range of taught courses
in Bahrain.


‘While distance learning and e-learning remain the best, and in some cases the only, solution for
companies and individuals requiring cost effective and flexible training, there is no doubt that many
people benefit from taught courses if the time and funding are available,’ explains RRC MD, Gary
Fallaize. ‘By expanding our offering to complement our existing portfolio of HSE courses, we will be
providing an even more comprehensive choice of training solutions, not only for standard courses
but also for the development and delivery of bespoke in company training.’


Dr David Towlson has the ideal qualifications and experience to drive RRC’s expansion in the UK
and overseas markets. Being a former RRC student himself, as well as having held senior
positions of responsibility within the international health and safety arena, he has gained a valuable
perspective on particular issues affecting international HSE training.


After completing his studies for a PhD in Chemistry, David worked for Courtaulds for seven years
(first as a research scientist and later adding safety manager to his responsibilities). It was during
this time that he studied with RRC for his NEBOSH Diploma and became a corporate member of
IOSH. David then moved to the EHS department of an international chemicals company as
product regulatory officer for the European region. In this role, David developed particular
expertise in chemical safety (control, logistics, hazard communication, marketing and use
restrictions), a role which involved regular contact with customers and regulators in many
countries, as well as the design and delivery of short in-house training packages for employees .
David has a strong interest in EU directives on these subjects and international attempts at
harmonisation of safety legislation in general. He is also a keen programmer, designing databases
for handling safety data, interfacing with other software and for safety training purposes.


David has worked with RRC for a number of years as tutor for the Diploma level courses; more
recently he has helped develop the RRC course materials for both the NEBOSH International
General Certificate and the new NEBOSH Level 4 Diploma. David also has links with NEBOSH,
having been a regular examiner for the Diploma examinations over the years.


‘RRC is fast developing a reputation as an internationally respected provider of quality health and
safety training,’ says David Towlson. ‘We want to be the first provider that individuals and
international companies turn to for the best health and safety training provision to suit their
particular and varied needs. The development of the block release Level 4 Diploma programme is
another step in that direction. I look forward to working with the team on this exciting initiative.’


‘We are thrilled that David will be bringing his unique skills and expertise to this position which is so
important to help RRC’s expansion in both the taught course and international markets,’ concludes
Gary Fallaize.
