Housebuilders such as Wates, Kier, Vistry and Bellway have signed up to a COVID-19 compliance course, and more are expected to follow.
The course has been launched by the construction recruitment firm O’Neill & Brennan, who will provide coronavirus training for construction workers.
The course is certified on the Register of Regulated Qualifications by Ofqual, and will provide contractors with the opportunity to have a fully qualified COVID-19 compliance marshal on site.
This is designed to provide health and safety guidance on social distancing, how to sanitise sites, and how to spot coronavirus symptoms.
I would suggest this is an essential step forward to securing the continued safety on your building sites.
Whilst the teams will likely groan of yet more training to be had, this time, it’s a little bit different given the impact that COVID-19 has already had in the construction industry.
