CICV creates COVID toolkit
The Construction Industry Coronavirus (CICV) Forum has created a digital learning kit to help promote best practice regarding COVID-19 safety in the workplace in Scotland. Working closely with Construction Scotland Innovation Centre (CSIC), which links business, university experts and public sector providers, the Forum has introduced the Be COVID Smart training and learning programme.
- Educating those working on site, in homes or in places of learning.
- Encouraging the use of safe working and learning.
- Empowering the construction workforce to call out unsafe behaviour.
Iain McCaskey, Head of the CICV Forum Skills Group, who is leading the programme, says: “The Forum had identified the need not only for a safe return to work but also for reassurance for apprentices their families and employers.
“This innovative learning solution will not only raise awareness of safety in the current climate but also identify and test the user’s knowledge of the necessary steps to take to protect themselves and others.”
