Safety on Construction Sites (SMSTS & IOSH Managing Safely)

Global Horizon Skills works with some of Northern Ireland’s leading construction firms to provide them with training solutions that fit the needs of complex projects and client demands. And with Northern Irish companies taking on world-class projects such as the firm Graham winning the £46m contract to work on the London Crossrail stations, the requirement for essential safety training is rising steadily. These firms build their reputation by completing projects on time, on budget and perhaps most importantly, with an outstanding safety record causing minimal risk to live and the environment around sites. So how can your firm or business get in on all the great progress?

We believe that through exceptional training, leading to certification known throughout the construction industry your know how and reputation can shine through and help you win  contracts, with your clients knowing they are working with a safe and reputable outfit. Great training is a win-win situation for everybody.

Think of the IOSH Managing Safely course, coming up on the 10th June 2019. This course delivers an essential risk management and health and safety understanding, with practical considerations that you would recognise how to put into practice on-the-job. Great for managers and supervisors to be able to manage the safety of themselves and their teams. IOSH is one of the worlds largest health and safety organisations. It’s great for group bookings if you’re investing in ensuring your firm stays up to date with the best practices and know-how to manage the very real dangers that arise consistently on a construction site daily.

There is also the SMSTS (Site Managers Safety Training Scheme) course this June starting on the 3rd and continuing on the 4th, 13th, 17th and 18th. This in-depth course is designed to serve those with the responsibilities in planning, organising, monitoring and coordinating members of staff, for example as a Site Manager would. The legislation is covered as well as risk assessment, controlling hazards and adequate communication to ensure the best chances of a safe environment throughout construction projects. Your firm and its clients can depend on this training, as it’s industry-standard and the backbone of the UK’s first class approach to working safely.

Both courses are taking place at our Omagh office, which you’ll find at 64a Derry Road, Omagh, BT78 5DY.
