Trainee View: Myles McGeown of JF McKenna in Armagh completed the National Store Keepers (NSK) Course. “I learned a lot on the course from the basic tips of storing liquids below powders and what to do about spillages to issues on first aid for those contaminated with pesticide. The course also brought home to me the limited environmental impact sprays have if they are handled correctly.”
