This 1 day course will give an awareness in the morning, delving deeper for managers in the afternoon.

It will also help you ask the right questions. There will be opportunities to discuss scenarios, explore problems, develop solutions and the equipment that needs to be in place.

The team responsible for safety need to know more so…

– we can assist the designers and team managers to create more informed and better solutions to the construction problems of the new project

– we’re confident in taking clearer action on the ground due to the greater knowledge we’ve gained

– we can create more appropriate risk assessed methods of working and rescue

It gives the opportunity to talk through potential alternative solutions. Sometimes you can be too close to a problem, and how are you supposed to know what you don’t know!
