Introduction

This course is designed for site managers, agents and persons who are, or are about to be, responsible for planning, organising, monitoring, controlling and administering groups of staff and workforce.

The course covers all relevant legislation and other aspects which affect safe working in the building, construction and civil engineering industries. It highlights the need for risk assessment in the workplace, the implementation of the necessary control measures and adequate communication to sustain a health and safety culture among the workforce.

2. Aims and objectives

The course aims to help site managers, agents and supervisors to:

manage health and safety on site in accordance with current legal provisions, and within the context of their management or supervisory role

develop an understanding of responsibilities and accountability for site health, safety and welfare, and

recognise a safe site is efficient, economical and productive.

At the end of the period of training, delegates will be aware of, and able to:

implement all health, safety, welfare and environmental legislation which affects them during their daily work

implement new guidance and industry best practice

state their duties and responsibilities with regards to health, safety, welfare and the environment.

3. Course delivery

In order to maintain continuity and flow, and to maximise a delegate’s comprehension and participation, the favoured method of delivery is to hold the course over five consecutive days. However, day release, comprising one or two days per week for up to a maximum of five weeks, is an acceptable alternative.

Where courses are interrupted, for example by Bank Holidays, this time period may be extended to seven weeks.

Should a training provider wish to deliver the course over half-days or as an evening course, the required contact hours are 40 and 42 hours respectively. Half-day courses will require an attendance of a minimum of four hours and evening classes for a minimum of three and a half hours at any one time. These extended hours take into account the stop-start nature of the delivery.

Only in extenuating circumstances should courses be run any differently to the above alternatives and permission must be granted by the Site Safety Plus department at the registration stage.

Appendix 7 page 2 of 24

XA6P Arpil 2015

Course attendance

Delegates are required to attend all sessions, since without full attendance the Construction Site Manager’s Safety Certificate will not be awarded. Delegates must attend the days in order, in accordance with the course programme, to achieve the necessary learning objectives to qualify for the certificate.

If this is not possible the delegate must enrol on a new course and retake the full five-day course.

However, if this is not possible due to extenuating circumstances (for example bereavement or certified illness), the delegate may enrol on a new course to complete the missing days ensuring that they maintain the correct sequence of days, training and exercises. This must be authorised by The Site Safety Plus department prior to confirmation with the delegate. Extenuating circumstances do not include work-based issues such as workload or holidays. This should be made clear to the delegates prior to booking places on the course.

Delegates unable to complete the course due to certified sickness or extenuating circumstances must complete the course within 90 days of the last day of attendance.

Under no circumstances may a delegate be allowed to sit the compulsory objective examination unless all days have been attended and no delegate is allowed to attend more than two courses of split attendance.

Delegates will be charged an attendance fee, as shown in the scheme fees Schedule 1.8, for each course attended. The training provider may also have additional costs to be recovered from the delegate and these should be agreed in advance.

Where any doubt exists the training provider should seek advice from the Site Safety Plus department; however, the Scheme Rules will be adhered to in these circumstances.

Core exercises and case study

On completion of the course and successfully passing the four core exercises, case study exercise and end-of-course examination the delegates are awarded the Construction Site Manager’s Safety Certificate.

The four core and case study exercises are carried out to assess the performance and interaction of each participant within the group exercises.

The four core exercises comprise:

1. Implementing health and safety legislation

2. Managersand supervisorsresponsibilities

3. Site briefing

4. Site Layout

These exercises are included at item 12.

It is suggested that these exercises are used; however, other exercises and tests may be used to supplement the course if the training provider so wishes.

It is the responsibility of the training provider to choose which case study is most appropriate for the delegates attending the course. It is important to ensure additional study material is seen in the context of the individual’s day-to-day working environment.

The case studies currently available are:

Case Study One Case Study Two

Case Study Three

Case Study Four

Case Study Five Case Study Six

Factory and ancillary buildings House building

Civil engineering

Demolition

Refurbishment New roads and street works

Suggested timetables

Training providers of the scheme courses should respond to local training needs in determining the course structure and content.

The ‘What do you know?’ examination questionnaire, if used, has been developed to provide tutors with information to determine delegates’ abilities, and past and current experience. The tutor can then identify a common starting point for the group and highlight individual needs.

The minimum course duration is 37½ hours’ tuition time (excluding breaks) with additional homework being recommended. The course can be structured in a number of ways to meet delegates’ or customers’ needs, for example:

5 week period

5-day block release with 5 days each of 7½ hours

5-day release of 1 or 2 days per week with a 7½ hour day over a maximum

12 x 3½ hour tuition evening sessions.

The short-duration, evening class style provision shall include extra tuition time to take account of the stop-start nature of this form of tuition.

Within the overall framework and objectives of the scheme and likely differing needs of clients and delegates, together with the operating practices varying between training providers and centres, the timetables are offered as a general guide to delivering the courses within a logical structure.

Training providers should avoid radical changes to the programmes and where doubt exists as to the acceptability of any alteration the Site Safety Plus department should be consulted prior to course delivery.

The five-day block release programme should be run generally as set out in the next section.

The day release course can be modified to run in day sessions, with the addition of a short review of the content of the previous day’s subjects by way of a refresher and to allow delegates time to settle back into the course.

The 12 x 3½ hour tuition evening style delivery has an extra time allocation; this should include additional work to link the sessions to allow for the probability of working in a classroom situation after a long day at work.

7. Five-day objective examination paper

The examination paper number will be notified when the course booking is accepted by the Site Safety Plus department.

Note:

The following eight pages (13 to 20) are the recommended format for the three core exercises and should be reproduced by the training provider for delegates.

Appendix 7 page 12 of 24

XA6P Arpil 2015

Exercise 1:

Implementing health and safety legislation

Aim

To enable delegates to develop ideas on ways of defining and implementing the principles of health, safety and welfare, and how such principles will affect the duty-holders (client, principal contractors, contractors, self-employed, manufacturers and suppliers).

Learning objectives

By participating in this exercise, delegates should be better able to recognise and understand the need to have an adequate knowledge of the general duties placed on duty-holders under The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974.

Exercise method

Briefing

1. Small groups should be formed, of perhaps 5 or 6 delegates, with the appointment of a leader or secretary for each group.

2. Each group should be designated as belonging to a specific category of employee having duties under current legislation (e.g. self-employed, client etc.). It is important that one group represents contractors.

Task 1

Each group should consider, and answer as fully as possible, the following questions concerning their category:

1. Define and describe the designated category (organisation).

2. Identify their general health and safety duties under the relevant legislation (policy statement).

3. Establish where and with whom the responsibility lies for ensuring that those duties are carried out (arrangements).

The tutor should check group answers and correct any faulty information or misunderstandings. It is recommended that findings are shared generally at this stage to clarify basic information which is important for Task 2.

Appendix 7 page 13 of 24

XA6P Arpil 2015

Task 2

1. Groups should re-form to develop their ideas on ways of measuring and controlling the health and safety performance of their category.

Uncritical brainstorming is suggested at the initial stage, followed by careful analysis of the ideas contributed, to establish the measures that the group considers valid and realistic for the monitoring of health and safety performance.

2. Group leaders should then present their findings to the course. Discussion generated at this stage should produce useful modifications for some groups to apply to their own proposals.

The tutor then summarises the findings of all groups, and discusses areas where difficulties or misunderstandings may have arisen. It may be useful here for delegates to receive copies of the proposals of the other groups, to provide them with a record of the wider picture.

Information to be provided

A project brief for each of the designated categories

A summary of the different duties (monitoring and control measures) see task 2 (2) above

A copy of Construction Site Safety (GE700) and the course notes (XA6).

Assessment

This is a group exercise, though such an arrangement can also provide for the assessment of delegates if the tutor wishes. A group mark should be given and that mark awarded also to each group member, unless the tutor decides that particular delegates deserve weightings based on their contributions to the overall result.

The mark should be based on the accuracy and extent of understanding of the general duties involved, and the quality and feasibility of the monitoring methods proposed.

Appendix 7 page 14 of 24

XA6P Arpil 2015

Exercise 2:

Managers’ and supervisors’ responsibilities

Aim

To enable delegates to consider the general responsibilities of operatives, supervisors, general foremen and managers on sites, and to develop these into specific responsibilities for given site operations and conditions.

Learning objectives

Having completed the exercise, delegates should be better able to understand and distinguish between the different organisational levels of responsibility for health and safety on site, with particular reference to operatives, supervisors, general foremen and managers.

Exercise method

Briefing

Small groups of three or four should be formed. The tutor should provide copies of the case study and drawing and the questionnaire, and deal with any questions of interpretation.

Task

1. Delegates should individually prepare schedules of general health and safety responsibilities for the operatives, supervisors, general foremen and managers.

2. The groups should write specific health and safety responsibilities for the above duty-holders for selected site operations that are specific to the requirements of whichever case study is being used.

3. Groups should report back to the whole class.

Information to be provided

An exercise brief, case study drawing and questionnaire

Course notes (XA6, Section 3)

Appendix 7 page 15 of 24

XA6P Arpil 2015

Assessment

The group work is a means of developing and reinforcing learning. Delegates are to be assessed according to these central criteria and to the extent to which they recognise and understand the general safety responsibilities at various organisational levels. Delegates can be marked on their questionnaire answers and on the quality of their responsibility schedules. Specific criteria should include:

An adequate description of the health and safety responsibilities.

The extent of descriptions, to include principal areas of concern, work equipment, labour and materials.

Exercise 3: Site briefing

Aim

To enable delegates to combine their knowledge and experience of the construction site, with their skills in writing and analysing specific health and safety instructions for a construction operation on site.

Learning objectives

Having completed this exercise, delegates should be better able to understand the need to provide suitable information and instructions to help protect employees, and others, from hazards on site.

Exercise method

Briefing

Small groups of 3 or 4 should be formed. Groups should either be able to select for themselves, or be allocated, a construction process for which they must write health and safety instructions for the operatives concerned. The construction process may be taken from a real situation, or based on the drawings of the case study. To broaden learning generated by the exercise no two groups should work on the same process.

The tutor should assist delegates in selecting a suitable process for this exercise.

Task

1. Working individually, delegates should write a set of instructions to enable operatives to perform the process safely. They should describe, and justify, the means of communication intended to convey the information, and include follow-up procedures to be used to ensure observance of the instructions.

2. Groups should re-form, where delegates’ contributions should be pooled and analysed to enable each group to produce a single master safety instruction for their process. This should include explanatory notes of the means of communication and the follow-up proposed.

3. Groups should then present their finished sets of instructions to the whole class.

In preparing their material for presentation, groups should ensure that, at the very least, the following points have been fully covered and that they have produced:

a sufficiently clear and detailed description of the chosen process, including the location of the site and its precise position on the site

specific health and safety information and instructions for the chosen process

general safety instructions for the whole area, such as fences, barriers, gates, roadways, mobile plant, lay-down areas, noise, dust, fumes and PPE

Appendix 7 page 19 of 24

XA6P Arpil 2015

the exact means of communication to be used, indicating how, where and by whom the instructions will be conveyed to all operatives affected. (This should include the interfaces with other trades on site.) The use of additional publications or material provided by outside sources is acceptable

details of the monitoring procedure to ensure that the instructions will be received, understood, accepted and observed.

Information to be provided

Assessment

This is an exercise in communicating health and safety information and instructions to those potentially at risk. The accurate choice of the information and instructions to be conveyed must be combined with effective use of the communication process itself.

It may be used for an assessment of both individuals and groups, using at least the following criteria:

accuracy, suitability and adequacy of the content from a health and safety viewpoint , bearing in mind the nature of the process

clarity, precision, accuracy, style, tone, etc, of the written communication and its suitability for its intended readership

evidence of the candidates’ appreciation of the suitability of the chosen means of communication, and the reasons for rejecting other means

effectiveness of the proposed monitoring procedures.

Exercise 4: Site Layout

Aim

To enable delegates to use their knowledge, experience and planning skills to plan a construction site layout that will:

provide a safe working environment where the risk of injury or health hazard has been eliminated or reduced as far as is reasonably practicable

be economical and efficient

be organisationally sound.

Learning objectives

Having participated in this exercise, delegates should be better equipped to:

recognise potentially hazardous situations on site in order to plan effectively for, as far as possible, a risk-free environment within the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 and other relevant health and safety legislation

employ forward planning as an essential means of contributing to site health and safety in an economical way.

Exercise method

Briefing

(a)

Small groups of three or four should be formed, and a leader or secretary should be appointed for each group.

(b)

Groups should examine all documents and drawings provided, and raise any queries about their content or the tasks themselves.

Tasks

(a) Each group must use the case study drawing to prepare a proposal for site set-up that would consider as many of the following issues as possible:

the distribution and use of services (new and existing) on site

plant and equipment, including scaffolding and hoists

Appendix 7 page 21 of 24

XA6P Arpil 2015

the delivery, handling, storage and transport of materials (including highly flammable liquids and liquefied petroleum gases) across and to and from the site

health and welfare including first aid facilities

access to, from and around the site for employees and visitors, including site parking

the movement of the general public near the site

fire prevention and fire precautions and other emergency arrangements

demolition of buildings and associated hazardous substances

contaminated ground remediation

statutory nuisance to neighbours, e.g. noise, vibration, mud and dust,

waste storage and disposal

(b)

Each group should provide a written statement outlining the economic and organisational reasons for the decisions taken.

(c)

Each group should prepare a list of the potential health and safety hazards which are eliminated or controlled by their proposals.

(d)

Groups should present and explain their proposals to the whole class.

(e)

Delegates should analyse all presentations to determine their effectiveness in meeting the aims and objectives of the exercise.

De-briefing

(a)

Each delegate completes the questionnaire to assess the value of the exercise in meeting its objectives.

(b)

After analysing the completed questionnaires, the lecturer will provide feedback about the results to the whole class (without identifying individual responses). This feedback session will enable the candidates to suggest ways of developing or changing the emphasis of significant aspects of the exercise.

Assessment

The judgment as to whether the solution provided by the group is suitable from an economical and organisational view will only be possible in the case of obvious faults, e.g. excessive movement of personnel and materials, lack of space for storage and the movement of vehicles on, around and off the site. Groups should only lose up to 25% of their marks if there are economic or organisational failings, provided that discussion of their solution addresses the issues and problems can be resolved

A number of marks should be allocated or withdrawn where persons are observed to have made relatively good or poor contributions either during the group work or discussions. The tutor should observe the groups at work and assess individual contributions in terms of interest, knowledge, understanding and ability to apply and develop basic knowledge on safety and health.

Recommended weighting

The marks should be based on the following:

End-of-course examination rules for the course

Refer to Section 3 Registering courses and marking Delegates’ performance

The examination paper is compulsory and consists of 25 multiple-choice questions covering all aspects of the course, written and selected by Cskills Awards. It forms part of the overall assessment as to whether or not the delegate has successfully achieved the Construction Site Manager’s Safety Certificate and demonstrated both knowledge of the relevant statutory provisions and the application of management, in respect of health and safety issues.

The examination demonstrates to external bodies that the certificate is only awarded to successful delegates following both an assessment and examination. The examination lasts for 30 minutes and must be completed within this time. Delegates are permitted to use the Construction Site Safety (GE700) publication and the XA6 Course Notes for the last ten minutes of the examination period. The examination pass mark is 72%.

Where a delegate has achieved 70% in the core exercises and the tutor’s review, and gained between 64%68% in the multiple-choice examination, the delegate may re-sit the multiple-choice examination by attending another course on the final day. Subsequent arrangements will be at the delegate’s own expense. The training provider must make the arrangements with the delegate and ensure that the same examination is not used twice. The delegate must re-sit the examination within 90 days of the last day previously attended. A charge may be made to the delegate; however, this fee is left entirely to the discretion of the training provider. Should the delegate fail for a second time, that person will need to attend the full SMSTS course again. Delegates may only be given two chances of successfully achieving the Construction Site Manager’s Safety Certificate, after which an alternative course should be considered to match the delegate’s level of knowledge and understanding of health and safety on site.

When a delegate scores less than 64% (16 correct answers out of 25) in the final examination, the delegate must attend the full SMSTS course again before they are allowed to re-sit the examination.
