The construction industry services include performing the following roles:
Project Supervisor for the Design Process (PSDP)
The duty of the project supervisor for the design process (PSDP) is to ensure co-ordination of the work of designers throughout the project. For most construction projects a PSDP must be appointed by the client at the beginning of a project. Homeowners do not need to appoint a PSDP for construction work on their home if the project will have only one contractor, does not involve a particular risk, and will not last longer than 30 days or 500 person days.
Project Supervisor for the Construction Stage (PSCS)
The role of the project supervisor for the construction stage (PSCS) is to manage and co-ordinate health and safety matters during the construction stage of a project. For most construction projects a PSCS must be appointed by the client at the beginning of a project. Homeowners do not need to appoint as PSCS for construction work on their home if the project will have only one contractor, does not involve a particular risk, and will not last longer than 30 days or 500 person days.
Health & Safety Coordinator
Where the PSDP or PSCS is a corporate body, the person(s) performing the PSDP or PSCS duties is called a health & safety coordinator.
Health & Safety Advisor
The PSCS should appoint in writing a competent full time safety adviser when there is normally more than 100 persons on a construction site at any one time engaged in construction work.
We assist employers to comply with their obligations under the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Act 2005.
A contractor who has normally more than 20 employees on a site, or 30 engaged in construction on various sites, must appoint a competent safety officer to advise and supervise adherence to safety and health requirements. The Safety Officer should:
- be familiar with the relevant safety and health legislation which affects the types of construction work being carried out
- have the ability to identify hazards and assess risks on construction sites
- be capable of advising the contractor on the most appropriate control measures and systems of work in order to minimise risk
- be able to communicate the safety and health requirements to managers, supervisors and workers on sites
- if assigned other duties the contractor must ensure that these other duties do not prevent the safety officer from carrying out his/her duties as safety officer in an efficient manner
Health and Safety Consultancy
With the evolution of technology, business processes and increasing reliance on skilled manpower the health and safety aspect of workers as well as other stakeholders has become important in Ireland as the economy continues to expand and enterprises continue to take in more and more skilled people. But it is not possible for business managers to leave aside the production and other major aspects of industries and get involved with health and safety. This calls for health and safety consultancy. We, at Irish Institute of Sports Surfaces are working as health and safety consultants for enterprises in Ireland and help them tide over challenges in these areas so that they can focus on their core ones.
