Any Construction Project requires a balanced view of what is required to be achieved as against the best and most efficient methods of work that will ensure the safety of both personnel and the environment. A project is essentially a collaborative enterprise that place responsibilities on all parties, from the owner to the contractor and subcontractor. All stages of a project require evaluation of the potential H&S risks that may develop.

This Health & Safety in Construction Projects training course aims at setting the guidelines and knowledge base required to evaluate the project in H&S performance and avoid unnecessary delays.
