    I am interested in this field of learning with how the environment impacts on health (physical and mental) of people and pets etc. especially workplace and child, disable and aged and people with mental illness or intellect barriers etc. I would love to see some more courses that talk about this because so far child abuse and disable or aged abuse don’t include the environmental and hygiene or attractiveness or quality of health of a building that has mould or aging issues that impact on allergy, cancer and long term infirmed and damage to the body, mind and community . I believe environmental abuse is a real thing for children, pets, aged and disabled as much as workers or parents. Asbestos is still being used and dangerous, with each year storms and dangerous weather all play huge role in formation of wellness of living standards and all this should be included on census to plan for the future for mould and other affected buildings to councils and govt to provoke legislative changes. I would like to see more workbooks with these courses. Sound is a bit low but slides and detail good, visuals and film footage break up the sub units of interest very well.
