Safe Site Clean-Up
Sites earmarked for construction may contain any number of risks to the safety and health of those tasked with the clean up of it. As such, it is imperative that these individuals are not only suitably trained in what dangers to look out for and what they should do if they encounter certain issues such as asbestos dust for example, but also that they are provided with the protective equipment necessary to keep them safe from harm when on the site and dealing with hazards.
What Dangers Might Be Present on a Site?
The potential dangers, risks and hazards to health which may be present on a site are numerous and can incorporate any number of items or ways in which a person can suffer injury, ill health or even death in extreme cases should they come into accidental contact with them either at all or in too high an exposure level (time or concentration amount).

What Should be Present for a Safe Site Clean-Up?
Along with already having received thorough health and safety training on the issues which they may or are likely to encounter, certain facilities should be present on the site to cater for the safety, welfare, hygiene and wellbeing of those working on cleaning up the site. Examples of such items are:
Need an Accredited Course?
Along with designing bespoke health and safety training programmes, we also run the accredited NEBOSH, IOSH and ConstructionSkills (CSkills) health and safety courses as open courses at selected venues across the UK, as well as in-house for those companies who have a number of employees requiring the training, as it will be much more cost effective than sending them all onto a scheduled open course.
For more information please call 0115 984 9940 to discuss the options or send us an online contact form. Alternatively, use the "Courses" menu at the top of the page to view the courses and qualifications for the various awarding bodies.
These courses form the basis for our in-house training programmes. They can either be run as they are if the outline is exactly what you want, or can be be modified to suit the individual requirements of your organisation. Two or more can also be combined to tailor a bespoke training session for you.
