This project’s primary aim was for contractors to undertake their designated tasks in a safe and proactive manner. This was defined as the ‘determination and belief that no-one should be injured or suffer ill-health in the course of work activities’. The course can be applied to any construction situation.
It features the use of the point of work assessment STAARR (Stop, Think, Assess, Act, Report and Review) and TASK (Think first, Act safe, Stop if hazardous and Keep safe) card. This is a simple dynamic risk assessment system used on DWP JCP projects, where contractors or suppliers through the life of programme have not adopted their own system. The course is in line with the existing ACoP and Guidance for the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007, which links to other legislation in requiring co-operation and co-ordination is carried out. As with the ‘4 Cs’ from HSE’s ‘Working Well Together’ Campaign, this course encourages participants to capture and apply the ‘9Cs’ (Communication and Consultation enables Co-operation, Co-ordination, Collaboration, Control and Competence, establishing a Culture and Commitment at all levels).
