Competence: how can workplace competence be assessed? A common sense approach.

February 17 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Speaker: Sam Duxbury, SHE Manager, Walter Carefoot & Sons (Construction) Ltd

About the session

An up-to-date training record is necessary but should never be used as a substitute for adequate supervision and project management. This session will emphasise the importance of on-the-job practical experience and the need for managers to ensure that their workers understand how to complete their tasks without putting themselves or others at risk. Sam will illustrate his talk with case studies.

About Sam

Sam has a wide experience of managing health and safety on construction projects where the success of the project is dependent on managers and tradesmen who are competent. He is a great believer in a common-sense approach to health and safety management based on practical on-the-job training backed up with realistic risk assessments and record keeping.
