Fundación Laboral de la Construcción won the tender of the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) of the European Commission, to develop the strategic framework for the improvement of training in Health and Safety in Construction -Health and Safety Blueprint-, a necessary complement to the “Strategic Approach on professional skills in the Construction industry” led by the joint entity -the Construction Blueprint project-.
The Health and Safety Blueprint project aimed at addressing the training gap on H&S regarding energy efficiency and sustainable materials. From December 2018, the twelve countries involved in Construction Blueprint (Germany, Belgium, Slovenia, Spain, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Poland and Portugal) worked on this line.
The created modules focus on the most common materials and operations, as well as those that workers are most exposed to. The training takes into account materials and operations with higher risks or those that workers are less aware of.
A total of 8 modules are clustered in 3 different sections: Materials, Operations, and Waste. The modules are:
- Insulation and Sealing materials.
- Finishing materials.
- Bituminous materials.
- Sustainable materials.
- Insulation operations.
- Inverted Green Roofs.
- Renewable Energy Systems.
- Waste management.
