Twelve deaths on Irish construction sites last year

Twelve people have died in the construction sector so far this year, reflecting the rising number of people killed during construction work over the past five years.

Between 2010 and 2014, 39 people have been killed in the construction sector, with the death rate steadily increasing from 4.1 per 100,000 workers in 2010 to 9.8 in 2013.

The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) have sponsored a children’s book called Grandad Built My House, Ged Nash theMinister for Business and Employment drew attention to the importance of raising awareness among families of construction workers of the risks involved in the industry.

Dear Customers,

Our public Safe Pass training continues to remain suspended due to the risk of COVID-19.

The recent surge in infection rates since St Patrick’s Day has raised serious concerns for us in relation to delivering face-to-face training which takes place over a period of 9 hours. 

While the government guidelines allow for face-to-face training to continue, our risk assessment indicates otherwise, therefore we do not want to risk the safety of our learners or employees.

We do apologise for any inconvenience caused. However, please be assured we are doing this with the best intentions for our customers and employees.

Please bear in mind that other training organisations continue to deliver the Safe Pass course, this is a decision we have had to make for the protection of our learners and employees.

We do have a wide range of online construction-related courses including 

  • Manual Handling 
  • Working at height 
  • Fire Safety
  • Abrasive Wheels training
