Role as required by the Construction (Design & Management)
We will work with you to manage and control the health and safety
aspects of projects enabling you to comply
with the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2007.
Getting to grips with legislation is hard; its interpretation can
be even harder. The law puts great emphasis on the need for training.
It is therefore important that time devoted to training is both
rewarding and cost effective. Training is offered in the following
Construction (Design and Management) Regulations - e.g. designers
duties and roles and responsibilities.
Safety awareness courses - specific health and safety issues relating
to individual companies e.g. fork lift tucks and manual handling.
Construction Health and Safety - systems, procedures and implementation.
