Aims and objectives
The course aims to ensure that all those given supervisory responsibilities understand:
why they are carrying out their identified duties
what is expected of them and
to ensure that they contribute to the safety of the workplace
At the end of the course delegates will be able to:
understand the problems of the industry
have an understanding of how health and 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
understand the importance of timely intervention when bad practice is identified.
The maximum number of delegates per course will be 20.
This course is an ideal foundation for obtaining a basic understanding of health and safety duties and responsibilities for junior management, and upon successful completion of this course, a natural progression would be the Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course.
Existing site managers, agents, surveyors and persons holding positions of managerial control should attend the Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course.
The method of assessment will be by multiple-choice questions at the end of the course as well as being expected to be interactive during the course.
