Under the Suitability Assessment Questionnaire* (SAQ section 3.4.1a and 3.4.1b) of the Capital Works Management Framework, one of the requirements questions whether applicants/tenderers ‘‘have undertaken a course introducing the principles of the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work (Construction) Regulations 2006 – 2013 with particular regard to the service providers’ duties under those Regulations. The course should be approved by their relevant registration body or (in the absence of a Registration body) a professional body appropriate to the service provider in question.’’
In response to this, we have prepared an online training course to facilitate maximum accessibility for members in undertaking the course. The interim ‘To whom it may concern’ letters provided by us will remain available for a further six months to allow you sufficient lead in time for you and your staff to undertake the training.
The course content and delivery have been independently prepared by Chris Mee Group, a specialist Health & Safety consultancy who provide customised training solutions. On successful completion of the course, participants will receive a Certificate from the Chris Mee Group which is valid for 4 years.
The course comes in three modules, each with 4 multiple choice questions at the end. Participants are required to pass each module before they can progress to the next module. The overall duration of the course is circa. 3 hours.

In addition to fulfilling the stated requirement of the public sector SAQ as outlined above, the course also provides an excellent introduction to the principles of Safety, Health & Welfare at Work (Construction) Regulations 2006 – 2013 and we would recommend it to all industry professionals involved in the construction and property sectors whether they be client side, contracting or academia.
Members are advised that it is highly likely that public sector contracting authorities will employ stringent enforcement of satisfactory evidence being presented, in fulfilment of these requirements as set out in the standard SAQ’s. Failure to provide Certificates of completion of the SCSI approved course, for those Management and Personnel put forward in SAQ’s for public sector appointments, may result in Contracting Authorities disqualifying / failing a pre-qualification submission and / or tender.
*Applicants / tenderers must ensure they read fully the requirements of each SAQ and each question and part thereof and respond accordingly, SCSI or Chris Mee Group do not accept any liability, whatsoever or howsoever arising, to any applicant / tenderer or other third party, from a Contracting Authority failing an applicant / tenderer in response to the questions noted above (notwithstanding the above mentioned Certificates being provided or not), or any other questions included within an SAQ.
