It will highlight the requirement to promote Health & Safety to supervise effectively.
This course is endorsed by the United Kingdom Contractors Group UKCG as the standard training for all supervisors working on UKCG sites and, as such, the course must be delivered as laid out in the following programme.
A light lunch will be provided to delegates attending this course.
Who Should Attend

What is expected of them
To ensure that they contribute to the safety of the workplace
By the end of the course delegates will be able to:
Understand the problems of the industry
Have an understanding of how Health & Safety law is structured and how it applies to Supervisors
Identify how their supervisory role fits in with the management structure in controlling the site safely
Carry out risk assessments and understand the need for method statements
Carry out effective site inductions, toolbox talks and method statement briefings
Be able to monitor site activities effectively

On successful completion of the course the delegates will be awarded the Construction Skills Site Safety Plus Certificate as an electronic PDF.
This course is an ideal foundation for obtaining a basic understanding of Health & Safety duties and responsibilities for junior management, and upon successful completion of this course, a natural progression would be the 5 day Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course. Existing Site Managers, Agents, Surveyors and persons holding positions of managerial control should attend the 5 day SMSTS course.
