Why is this Construction Site Manager’s Course Vital?

The construction sector has a statistically poor health and safety record. The rate of fatality in the industry is almost four times that across other injuries. At the same time, some 81,000 suffer from work-related ill health in construction, while there are 61,000 non-fatal injuries per year, according to the Health and Safety Executive.

Any organisation operating in the construction sector has a moral responsibility to do its part to prevent construction site accidents and ill health from occurring. Along with this, comes a legal and financial obligation to do so. Failure to properly manage the hazards on a construction site can result in serious fines and imprisonment, as well as irreparable damage to a company.

Legal Responsibilities

According to the law, employers must:

  • Demonstrate they are doing their part to protect the health and safety of their workforce
  • Take steps to reduce their environmental impact of their operations
  • Guarantee that there is an effective company procedure for health and safety and that all employees, subcontractors, and workers are made aware of their duties
  • Protect the construction workers who have a right to work safely without getting hurt
  • Consult their workers on any health and safety matters that affect their performance
  • Provide proper training to the construction workers to avoid any hazard to occur
