The Building Safety Group is dedicated to delivering the highest quality health and safety training, specifically designed for the building construction industry.

Site Safety folder

Every site should have a copy of the Site Safety Folder. As well as containing Statutory Documentation which is required to be completed by law, the folder contains model fire plans, induction forms, accident report forms and other important information on Health & Safety matters. Whilst the Site Safety Folder is, as its title implies, a document aimed at the site or Project Manager, many companies also keep a copy at their Head Office. The Site Safety Folders are £75.00 plus carriage and VAT. Find out more about our Site Safety Folder and what’s included on our Site Safety Folder page.
