Course Description

As you know Health and safety has to be front of mind in every aspect of construction at all times, and failure to do so can have serious consequences.

This course has been developed specifically to assist members of the construction industry to familiarise and update themselves with their obligations and responsibilities under Health and Safety legislation in Ireland.

Attendees will leave this training course with a greater knowledge of the health and safety construction regulations, a greater understanding of the importance of appointing a project supervisor at both design and construction stages and much more.

All delegates will get a chance to engage in an informative Q & A session, and will receive a highly informative course pack.
