Training standard looks to boost construction H&S competence

The UK Contractors’ Group (UKCG) has revised its health and safety training standard, which aims to ensure that managers on construction sites provide suitable training for workers.

The UKCG, which describes itself as the primary association for construction contractors operating in the UK, says the standard aims to increase competency and improve leadership in health and safety by developing knowledge and skills.

The standard requires those who direct, manage, or supervise construction-related activities to identify the most appropriate training for their employees. The UKCG will monitor the uptake of this training, and, over time, will require anyone working on its members’ sites in a leadership role to have undertaken training to meet the revised standard.€
