IOSH Avoiding Danger from Underground Services

Course Outline.

This one day geotechnically focussed health and safety course follows the requirements and guidance set out within HSG47, including CAT and Genny training, alongside awareness of the four chapters; identifying and managing the dangers; planning the work; detecting, identifying and marking and safe excavation.

Important aspects include the use of real examples from the geotechnical industry and delivery by chartered advisors who are from within the industry.

This course is definitely not 'another CAT and Genny course' and is the only externally verified course in the UK carrying the IOSH badge.
