Managing Construction Lead Hazards

Main Content Image

Following the success of our January session, CBH is hosting another ‘Managing Construction Lead Hazards’ training course on 12th March 2014 in Central London . This one day open course is already benefitting professionals working in Client organisations, as well as in Design and Contractor operations.  It is particularly relevant for Health & Safety Advisers and CDM co-ordinators both in the Public and Private sectors.

When carrying out projects involving demolition, refurbishment or decommissioning activities, the dangers associated with disturbing lead treated surfaces are often overlooked, posing significant health risks to those inadvertently exposed to them.

The course details the potential dangers to workers and others from inhaling or ingesting lead dust - even in microscopic quantities.  It also addresses the legal duties of Clients, Designers and Contractors who manage risks arising from the disturbance of lead containing materials (LCMs).  Finally, it highlights what measures to take to operate a ‘lead-safe’ work system.

Course attendees will be under the expert guidance of Tristan Olivier, accredited lead survey specialist and risk assessor; Tony Putsman, risk management consultant and a qualified trainer and Michelle Aldous , CEO of Constructing Better Health.
Here’s some of the feedback from previous course delegates:

“Excellent, informative course. Really good presenting from Tristan and Tony”. Monima Harrison, Land Securities.

“Too short! This was one of the best learning workshops I have had”. Amina Sule, Balfour Beatty Rail.

“Need to get the key message of ‘Lead’ out to the industry more”.Paul Bussey, Scott Brownrigg.
