Operating A Safe Site During COVID-19

BSG’s course, ‘Operating a safe site during COVID-19’, has been developed in response to our members, who have asked for a clear and definitive guide on how to make sites ‘COVID-19 Secure’ during these difficult times.

This half day remote training session will cover all the prerequisite steps which should be followed, to ensure you are conducting best practice on site to reduce the risk of infection.
