Date: Tuesday 23 November 2021 Time: 5pm - 7:30pm Webinar starts at 5pm and runs through to 7:30pm, including one 30-minute break.
Principles of personal site health and safety
Architects are familiar with the need to assess the potential risks associated with their work as designers, and how their decisions may affect construction workers and others. Identifying and evaluating the potential risks to themselves and their colleagues when visiting sites as part of their professional duties may not previously have received the same level of analysis.
Undertaking site visits, of various types and for diverse purposes, is a vital part of the architectural role and this course enables practitioners to plan for and carry out visits to both construction and non-construction sites with confidence that foreseeable risks have been adequately addressed.
The course content is aligned with the relevant sections of the RIBA Health and Safety Guide, which in combination, will enable architects to demonstrate a practical understanding of common construction site risks. In addition, consideration will be given to the risks associated with industrial and residential settings, with particular emphasis on unmanaged and derelict sites.
Over two and a half hours the course will include:
Introduction and context
Principles of risk management
Preparing for site visits
Undertaking site visits
On completion, attendees will have increased knowledge of the possible risks associated with site visits and a simple but effective format for developing a site visit assessment plan.
