Be proactive in upskilling your team

Many companies and persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBUs) sending their team for training are doing so after winning a tender for a larger than usual project. These projects often require workers to hold certificates demonstrating they have completed training and have been assessed as being competent in various skill sets.

While in many cases this may not be a problem in some cases delays in getting training completed can result in delays further down the line as work cannot be completed when scheduled.

HSE encourages PCBUs, managers and business owners to be proactive with their team’s upskilling and training. By ensuring your team have not just the skills they need now, but skills they may need soon, you can minimise the risk of being unable to access a site or undertake a job through not having undertaken the required training.
