This three day geotechnically focussed health and safety course has been developed by industry specialists and is a unique course for managers and supervisors involved in projects in the drilling and geotechnical industry. The course is certified by IOSH and is the industry equivalent to the SSSTS (Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme) construction qualification. This course has also been approved by The Environment Agency, Thames Water, AGS and BDA and also meets all of the requirements of the UKCG (formerly the Main Contractor's Group).

Who should attend?

The course is aimed at site managers and supervisors as well as specific drilling supervisors who are or will be expected to be involved on sites where geotechnical works are carried out. The course is designed for delegates from any sector of the Drilling and Geotechnical Industry but of equal relevance to those from other sectors where drilling and geotechnical work is part of the project.
