It will highlight the requirement to promote health and safety to supervise effectively by showing leadership skills.

This programme is endorsed by the CIF Safety Committee and the Construction Safety Partnership Advisory Committee (CSPAC) as the standard training for all construction supervisors/foremen working on Irish sites. This programme is designed to meet the needs of site supervisors employed in small to mediums to large size construction companies to ensure this key role fully understand his/her duty while on site..

Homework between day one and day two is recommended for revision for final examination; also toolbox talk, risk assessment, method statement, presentation exercise, which are intended to provide delegates with the opportunity of demonstrating their communication skills in front of an audience.

When presentations are being made by delegates the programme will allow sufficient time, including time for tutor feedback. The examination paper will be completed in class as a closed book examination on the last day of the course. The method of assessment will be by multiple-choice questions at the end of the course as well as being expected to be interactive during the course during the case studies segments.

Delegates are required to attend both sessions as full attendance is required along with successful passing the examination CIF Site Supervisor Safety Certificate can only be issued upon meeting this criteria.

Delegates must attend the days in order and, where not on consecutive days, must complete the course within two weeks of course closing date.

Delegates unable to attend both days due to extenuating circumstances (e.g. certificated sickness) will need to enroll onto a new course in order to maintain continuity of learning outcomes and attend both days again.
