MANAGING CONSTRUCTION DUST RISKS

Our Managing Construction Dust training event comprises a 2 hour session setting out the essentials of a dust management programme for designers and contractors working on both major and smaller projects.

The sessions deliver a high quality practical presentation in your own offices with minimum disruption to the business. The content is grounded in my extensive experience as an HSE Construction Division Principal Inspector and I facilitate the events personally.

HSE is making construction dust a major enforcement priority for operational Inspectors from 2014 onwards. A nationwide inspection initiative will start in June 2014 and construction project teams can expect formal Enforcement Notices and Fee for Intervention invoices where effective dust management programmes are not in place.

Please see event details below. Call me on 01462 612381 to discuss your needs.

Best wishes
