IOSH Project Supervisor Design Process Course (PSDP)


This Project Supervisor Design Process (PSDP) Course aims to give participants the knowledge and skills to prepare a Preliminary Health and Safety Plan for a construction project. Participants gain the skills to undertake the role and gain the competence to carry out the relevant duties. 

The Project Supervisor for the design process must be appointed in writing before design work commences to ensure effectiveness in addressing and co-ordinating safety and health matters from commencement of project design.

Working from our purposely designed template, incorporating a range of disciplines including civil, mechanical and electrical activities, participants are required to develop a Preliminary Health and Safety Plan as part of the assessment process.
