This online training course explains how to assess and manage competency in a construction project. The client along with any other duty holder appointing someone to work on a project is legally obligated to ensure those appointed are adequately competent.

This course looks at what competency is, how it works and ways to assess it. It provides guidance in line with the legal duties outlined under the Construction Design and Management Regulations, or CDM 2015.

Why this Assessing & Managing Competencies Course is Vital

In Great Britain alone, the construction industry sees an average of 61,000 non-fatal injuries each year. The sector also sees the highest annual rate of fatal injuries: around 36. These involve cases of falls from height, being trapped by something collapsing, being struck by moving vehicles and contact with machinery.

A common thread to these accidents and incidents is very often human error. Contractors and workers on site fail to use the systems that are in place to protect them. Simple errors result in aches and pains, escalating project costs and the unnecessary loss of life. Anyone whose role it is to assess competency  has a moral, legal and financial duty to ensure they are able to do their job sufficiently.
