Andrew Hull, Contracts Manager for Bullivant Taranto, Ireland's foremost concrete and piling company, shares his experiences with us after he attended our CDM 2015 - The Complete Guide training programme.
Why did you decide to attend the training course?
'I am currently studying part-time towards an MSc in Construction and Project Management, with a view to applying for CPRP in 2 years’ time. During the summer break, I decided to undertake some additional H&S training, and the CDM 2015 looked ideal.
I was interested in how the changes to the 2007 regulations would affect our works, particularly with the impact on the design aspect of our work.'
Was there a specific part of the programme you enjoyed the most?
'The programme was enjoyable throughout, but I did find the course tutor’s style helped encourage group discussion and allowed everyone to engage in the debate from their own perspective and background. I felt this helped delegates absorb the information and help explain how the regulations would apply.'
What have you gained from attending the training?
'Attending the course has given me updated information, particularly on the legal duties of individual parties involved in contracts.'
How will you apply your training in practice?
'Our involvement tends to be as a specialist sub-contractor, with our own in-house design department. So I'll use what I learnt from the training to make sure we are carrying out our duties correctly as a contractor undertaking works on site alongside other trades.'
