At the end of the course delegates will have the ability to carry out risk assessments, effective site inductions, tool box talks and method statement briefings. They will understand the problems of the industry as well as be able to explain how health and safety law is structured and how it applies to supervisors. Delegates will have the capacity to recognise how their supervisory role fits in with the management structure in controlling site safety and be able to monitor site activities effectively.
