  • Get insights to both the occupational health and safety laws
  • Achieve confidence in providing the safest possible working environment for works on the construction and maintenance projects
  • Enhance your skills in managing health and safety

Most Construction professionals, including safety personnel will benefit from this seminar by understanding that safety performance is good business, and increasingly a condition of contract set by clients and owners of major facilities. By understanding that safety is not one size fits all and is an indicator of management system effectiveness of the contracting organization, construction contractors can apply the resources to ensure safety effort is appropriate to the circumstance. The same causal factors that cause safety incidents and injuries also cause cost and schedule incidents.

The construction phase of a project is only one part of a project. Safety involvement and understanding of the other parts of a project management process has great impact on setting up the construction phase for success.
