The Cayman Islands Investment Bureau (CIIB) has partnered with the Sister Islands Labour office to offer a free workshop to Brac residents on the new Occupational and Health Standards that govern the Construction industry.
Presented by Senior Labour Inspector, Sandra Solomon, the session will provide local businesses, entrepreneurs and interested individuals with valuable information on updates to the OSHA requirements that now govern building projects.
The workshop will be held on Tuesday, 3 March at Aston Rutty Hall in Cayman Brac.
CIIB has said that topics to be covered include outlining the duties of contractors and workers with regards to things such as necessary equipment, incident handling procedures and general duties. The material will also speak to inspections, housekeeping, working at heights and offences.
Brac based Business Development Advisor with the CIIB, Ms Lolita Bodden, is thrilled that she was able to facilitate this workshop as she feels “it is important for persons to understand the new requirements in the law so that they can be more diligent about adherence when building. If businesses don’t know the law, they can make crucial mistakes.”
Building contractors, site foremen, construction and project mangers are especially encouraged to attend. Proper knowledge of new legal provisions will help avoid errors and limit risk which ultimately lead to more cost efficient operations. Please call 948-2400 to register.
