The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (Construction) Regulations 2013, which were published in August 2013 clarify and strengthen the general duties and roles of all of the key duty-holders including the client, Project Supervisors (both PSDP and PSCS), designers, contractors and employees. The regulations introduce some new duties or modify some of the existing duties of project supervisors and contractors.

To accompany the Construction Regulations 2013 the HSA has published two new guidance documents, which will be reviewed during the training course.

These regulations apply to all construction projects including the alteration, decoration, maintenance and repair of buildings and the installation, maintenance and removal of mechanical and other systems fixed within or to structures. They place obligations on clients and designers to ensure that safety and health is taken into account before any construction work begins. Contractors must ensure that the work on site is properly co-ordinated and carried out in a safe manner.

This half-day course gives an overview of the duties and responsibilities of the key duty-holders.
