Due to demand, we are rolling out our newly developed Site Plant/Vehicle Safety Awareness course alongside our suite of half-day training courses.
This course is designed to promote a safe working environment by providing candidates with a general knowledge and understanding of on-site plant/vehicle operations and manoeuvring by both the operator and site personnel.
Why is this training important?
On average, each year, about 7 workers die as a result of accidents involving vehicles or mobile plant on construction sites. A further 93 are seriously injured.
The law states that construction sites must be organised so that vehicles and pedestrians using site routes can move around safely. This includes safe systems of work, clear site access and provision for all workers and visitors to be made aware of any current hazards on site.
The key message is: construction site vehicle incidents can and should be prevented by the effective management of transport operations throughout the construction process.
