    Breaking Ground - Safer Sites

     

     

    Sherford Training Centre, Sherford, Plymouth. PL7 5AE

     

     

    Excavation and groundworks - Every year people are killed or seriously injured by collapses and falling materials whilst working in excavations. Groundworks and excavations such as digging foundations and trenches for drains are generally the first jobs carried out on a construction site, and unhappily for those killed each year; it was last task they carried – or attempted to carry - out.

     

    Workplace Transport - On average, About 7 workers die each year (an additional 93 workers are also seriously injured) by accidents involving vehicles or mobile plant on construction sites. These accidents involving vehicles or mobile plant on construction sites can and indeed should be prevented by the effective management of transport operations throughout the construction process.

     

    Working At Height – Falls from height account for the greatest portion of deaths among construction workers. There is no distinction between low and high falls so whenever any work is to be carried out at height, adequate measures must be taken to prevent the risk of any fall that could cause injury.  

     

    The event will feature talks and demonstrations. Experts from the industry and HSE inspectors will also be present to answer your questions. Whether you are a self-employed jobbing builder or run a small building company this free event is a must.

     

    Places at this event are limited and it is likely to be highly popular. BOOK NOW – Visit https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/breaking-ground-and-safer-sites-tickets-61222985598

    Designer CPD Event

    Hardwick Hall Hotel, Sedgefield  TS21 2EH

    Due to our last Designer CPD Event being oversubscribed, we are pleased to announce a re-run of this popular event in the Teesside area. 
     
    Working Well Together is a cross-industry partnership with the aim of improving standards of health and safety in our industry.
     
    The goal is meaningful and sustained reduction in injury and ill-health.  The benefit is not only a reduction in the pain and suffering caused to our fellow workers, but there are also real gains to be made in productivity, pride and professionalism.
     
    Designers have a big influence on all of these factors.  Early consideration of health and safety issues can resolve many of the problems that contractors face.  We all know that changes cropping up during the construction phase can be expensive.  The cost of failure to plan effectively is reflected in the high levels of injury and ill-health amongst our workforce.
     
    Designers have a crucial role in improving the performance of the industry but they need to be more proactive.  You will gain a valuable perspective on the designer role in construction.  Please ensure that at least one of your colleagues attends.
     
    To book a place please complete the booking form below. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis so an early reply is advised.
