The management of safety onsite not only affects the cost of the project, but it also impacts the health and safety of everyone.
As the site supervisor or manager, you are responsible for overseeing that project work is undertaken in a safe manner. This includes managing hazards and risks associated with the delivery, handling and storage of construction materials onsite.
With this skillset, you will learn how to conduct site inspections and put in place effective safety management strategies. As part of this process you will consult and communicate about safety issues in the workplace.
Ensure everyone’s safety with onsite safety and materials management.
