The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have introduced several strategies to provide quality recreational opportunities for workers and organisations in Northern Ireland. One strategy is the development of a National Health Service (NHS). This includes a number of specialist medical and dental centres. The aim of this strategy is to improve the health and safety conditions of those who work in the health and safety sector. The aim of the strategy is to reduce the burden of chronic disease and disability caused by health and lifestyle choices, and to ensure access to quality leisure and recreational activities for all citizens of the community.
This final chapter of the ECDL (English Composition) contains examples of poems that can be used in a leisure activity. An example is “The Battle of Alcazar” by Miguel Latorre. Miguel Latorre’s piece is about how the Spanish fought against the French in the eighteenth century. The work offers a unique perspective on the culture and society of the time. It helps students to appreciate and understand leisure and recreation and how they can help students build successful lifestyles.
The second course introduces students to the idea of the arts. The course introduces students to literature, drama and music. It also introduces students to terms such as literature, drama and music – three important aspects of a leisure and recreational activity. The course introduces students to the concept of the performing arts – what a play, piece or production is about and how it differs to other forms of artistic expression. Finally, the course introduces students to the idea of sport and leisure. It emphasises the importance of recreation in helping to cope with everyday pressures.
The third course introduces students to health and safety considerations associated with leisure and outdoor recreation. This includes considerations relating to accidents, disease and injury and safety equipment. The emphasis on health and safety in this part of the program helps students to think about how leisure and outdoor recreation can contribute to good health and therefore improve quality of life. This part of the program helps students incorporate leisure and recreation into their lives and therefore into their professional lives.
