COVID19 Compliance Officer Training for the Construction Industry

Course Background

Under the CIF guidelines, construction companies are required to appoint and train at least one COVID19 compliance officer for every site. These officers must be trained and competent in this important role. In addition, the Return to Work Safely Protocol (COVID-19 Specific National Protocol for Employers and Worker) issued by the Irish government in May requires that at least one COVID representative per workplace to be identified and trained in the requirements of the protocol.
We are running training courses which meet the CIF and government protocol requirements, specifically targeted at the construction industry. The course is delivered remotely via Zoom and takes approximately 2.5 hours. At the end of the course, you will be issued with a training certificate.
