Guernsey Electricity hosts specialist event for construction professionals


Guernsey Electricity is offering a one-day course for construction professionals in new areas.

The course will aim to help delegates 'understand and engage in the upcoming review of the island's Organisation & Management in Construction Approved Code of Practice' while looking at aligning to UK CDM regulations by adopting the principles set out in L153 Construction (Design & Management) regulation 2015 Guidance on regulations.

The Health and Safety Executive in Guernsey is working towards adopting these changes in 2020, offering guidance to construction workers on how to discharge their duties under the Health and Safety at Work (General) (Guernsey) Ordinance 1987.

Health and Safety Services Consultant at Faithful+Gould, Dave Jackson, will provide insight into the CDM 2015, instigating discussion on nuances in the UK and Jersey construction industries and how Guernsey can be engaged in the development of its own CDM legislation.

Planning and Design Lead for Guernsey Electricity, Paul Le Tissier, said: "Guernsey Electricity adopts the principles of CDM 2015 and we hope to see tighter integration across the industry as a result of the revised Guernsey Construction Approved Code of Practice. The current code was agreed in 1996, so we have the opportunity to improve standards across the industry and improve safety standards for all construction projects.

"This is a specialist event and we hope that interested parties will take the opportunity to join the discussion into driving up standards in the construction industry and ensuring local legislation is fit for purpose."

 The course will take place on 27 March at Les Roquettes Hotel and tickets are on sale now for £75 including lunch. You can buy them via eventbrite.com.
