With the construction industry having such a high accident and fatality rate compared t many other industries it is always worth considering training all staff in manual handling, asbestos awareness, working at height and slips, trips and falls.
This training is readily available as online courses which staff can carry out on a device of their choice at a time and location that suits them.
Job specific training is absolutely essential and this can be done in many ways including, tool box talks, handing out fliers, notices, handing out new risk and method statements or just a chat. Either way its importance can’t be dismissed. Imagine if you’ve promised a contract manager that your staff will carry out a specific task in a certain way, but you haven’t told the staff.
