Foundation Passport – Consultants (Online) Course Designed By Industry Experts

Consultants will now be able get their Site Safety Cards
(Passports) anytime, anywhere with Site Safe’s newest
online course.

The Foundation Passport – Consultants
(Online) is a fully online, self-paced course meaning
learners can complete the course at a time and place that
suits them.

Designed in collaboration with a group of
external industry experts, the course is ideal for
consultants looking for flexible renewal options.

Beca
Regional Health and Safety Manager, Bruce Campbell, says the
new course is a huge step forward.

“There will still
be a place for face-to-face training, particularly for new
people and graduates, but the online option has a lot of
advantages for us as a business.

“The fact that you
can do it in your own time and at your own pace will be a
huge asset and will really save time, especially for those
based in the regions who would have had to travel
otherwise.”

Bruce says he was impressed by the course
content and expects learners will find the online format
appealing.

“The content is engaging, and I’ve been
really impressed by Site Safe’s willingness to take on
board our feedback and work with industry to implement these
changes.”

Director of the Construction Clients’
Group (CCG), Tim Warren, says the course is enjoyable and
interactive.

“By involving consultants in the working
group, Site Safe have been able to provide real world
examples and practical case studies that bring the key
safety issues to life.

“The new course
really focuses on some of the high-priority areas such as
driving, visiting sites, excavations, plant, height and duty
of care, as well as the safety in design element and
acknowledges that consultants face a very specific set of
issues – both on and off site. And the legal review section
is tailored to the audience and to the issues faced by
consultants.

Tim says he expects the
uptake of the new course to be high.

“Site Safe have
really understood the different roles and stages of career
experience of working consultants and made the course really
relevant to their risks and responsibilities, as well as
flexible to suit the learner’s individual work
situation.

Group Health Safety & Wellbeing Manager
of Tonkin + Taylor, Dianne Campton, says the new course is
informative with a touch of fun.

“It’s been a
pleasure being part of a team and helping Site Safe as they
refreshed their Consultants Passport course for an online
learning experience. Working collaboratively together with
other consultants has enabled a more centric approach which
I trust learners find informative, a little challenging,
with a touch of fun.

“This course is ideal for
consultants wanting to take their health and safety to the
next level.”

GHD Health, Safety and Environmental
Manager, Nigel Craig, says the new online Foundation
Passport for Consultants provides a great opportunity for
consultants to complete the training online, ultimately
allowing them to complete it when it works best with their
busy schedules.

“It was an engaging process working
with Site Safe and fellow consultants in the development of
this training package. The inclusion of current changes in
health and safety impacting on consultants makes this
training relevant to both graduates and experienced
consultants.”
