Construction Professionals Health and Safety Card

Contractors, Consultants (and their supply chains) seeking to tender for public sector works contracts must be able to satisfy the Government Construction Client that they have the resources and competence to manage health and safety.  As a minimum, they must demonstrate that they are capable of meeting the requirements of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (NI) 2007 and other relevant regulations, approved codes of practice and recognised guidance.

The RSUA has established a one day health and safety training course appropriate for construction professionals which meets the requirements of the Buildsafe NI Initiative 2011.

The objective of the course is to equip designers with an understanding of construction health and safety.  When this understanding has been demonstrated through assessment, course participants are to receive a cPHS card as evidence of having successfully completed the course.  The cPHS card is seen as more appropriate for construction professionals and it compliments other card schemes such as the CSR card for site operatives.

The course participant’s professional institute’s registration number is to be displayed on the card and the cPHS card is to be used in conjunction with the professional institute card.

The programme for this one day training course and the cPHS card is supported by:

Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland
