The Management Regulations require risk assessments to be suitable and sufficient, prepared by competent person. As individual, there must be competent health and safety advice available to you, whether in-house or external.
As an employer, you should take account of the competence of relevant employees when you are conducting your risk assessments, or they are risk assessing for your business. This will help you decide what level of information, instruction, training and supervision you need to provide.
As designer (including a principal designer) or contractor (including a principal contractor) appointed to work on a construction project, you “must have” the “skills, knowledge and experience”, and if you are an organisation, you must have the “organisational capability”, necessary to “fulfil the role” that you are appointed to undertake, in a manner that “secures the health and safety” of any person affected by the project.
As designer or contractor, you must “not accept an appointment” to a project “unless you fulfil” the competence conditions.
A person who is “responsible for appointing” a designer or contractor to carry out work on a project must take “reasonable steps” to satisfy themselves that the designer or contractor are competent. Need to know more? Contact us for a brochure.
