Construction sites are dangerous and there is a real risk that members of the public and workers are killed while delivering a project. To deliver a project, we need to use cranes to lift heavy objects, dig deep holes and work with hazardous energy sources. As construction managers, it is our ethical responsibility to keep people safe. We need to ensure that both workers and members of the public alike go home safely each day.
The only way we can do that is through managing critical risks and ensuring the appropriate controls are in place. This is the essence of construction safety management. We need to work out what risks we face and then make sure that they are managed so that activities can be safely performed.
In this course, we are going to teach you the tools and techniques that skilled construction managers use to do that. Our course covers:
The basics of construction health and safety management
Planning and preparing to deliver a project safely
Delivering a project safely
And some of the key critical risks on construction sites and how to manage them.
Our course is full of practical, real-world techniques and examples so you come away from the course with a real skill set that you can apply on the job.
Who this course is for:

Hi, my name's Tim. I'm an electrical engineer who has worked on major infrastructure projects for a number of years for large construction companies. I've also completed a diploma in project management.
I'm developing simple, quick, and easy courses on fundamental engineering skills for junior engineers working in the infrastructure market. The purpose of these courses is to supplement on the job learning and provide a framework for thinking about engineering and project management.
