Who Should Attend?
First Line managers & supervisors
All Levels of Site Operatives
The course is designed to provide Delegates with an understanding of how attitude, behaviour,
communication and worker engagement at all levels can help prevent the chances of accidents occurring.
The Achieving Behavioural Change (ABC) course was originally developed to provide training on the benefits of adopting behavioural change for all contractors who worked on the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and Jobcentre Plus (JCP) refurbishment programme. This project’s primary aim was for contractors to undertake their designated tasks in a safe and proactive manner. This was defined as the determination and belief that no-one should be injured or suffer ill-health in the course of work activities’. Everyone wishing to work on these sites was expected to attend the one-day ABC course.
The course is in line with the existing ACoP and Guidance for the Construction (Design and
Management) Regulations 2007, which links to other legislation in requiring cooperation and co-ordination between all parties is carried out.
