Safe Management Officers Course for Construction

Course Overview

As part of the BCAs COVID-Safe Worksite Restart criteria, builders would need to establish and implement a system on Safe Management Measures (SMM)s to provide a safe working environment and minimise risks of further outbreaks. Builders would also need to appoint Safe Management Officers (SMO)s and Safe Distancing Officers (SDO)s as per the Restart criteria. This course is designed for the appointed SMOs and SDOs to perform their duties more effectively.
