What will it cover?

Introduction

This section is a general introduction to the ABC course. The introductory Exercise 1 (Consequences of an accident) sets the scene for the day. The tutor should allow fiveminutes for delegates to complete the exercise in teams. Each team can be invited, in turn, to read out one of their answers. This ensures that each team has the opportunity to contribute with a new suggestion. Once the first round is complete, the tutor can go around again until there are no more new suggestions, or until the tutor feels the subject has been sufficiently covered. All the exercises in this course can be run in the same way.

Legal Duties

This section provides an introduction to the legal duties of employers and employees. The purpose of this section is to clarify these duties, and to emphasise that delegates have the responsibility to not put themselves at risk. This section includes Exercise 2 (Legal duties), in which delegates identify the legal duties of employers and employees.

Hazard, Risk and Control

This section allows a review of the typical hazards, risks and controls that are found on construction sites. Exercise 3 (Safety problems) can be used to generate examples of hazards, and as a platform for identifying controls and who should be responsible for those controls. Tutors should feel free to add their own examples of hazards and control measures. In this section, the STAARR and TASK card is introduced as a method of hazard identification and for initiating control.

Causes of Accidents

The purpose of this section is to make delegates consider the causes of accidents, and the part they can play in accident prevention. The thrust is that unsafe acts cause unsafe conditions, which lead to accidents. The NAPO clip demonstrates this, and should be used to introduce Exercise 4A (Unsafe acts) and Exercise 4B (Unsafe conditions), which allow delegates to identify five scenarios where an unsafe acts lead to unsafe conditions. Exercise 5 (Costs of accidents) can be used to encourage discussion around the costs of accidents. This section should end with an appropriate video/DVD that reflects the issues covered. We would recommend the ConstructionSkills DVD ‘Don’t Become a Statistic’ (DVD 069) or similar, as a suitable choice.

Attitude and Behaviour

The purpose of this section is to make the delegates consider the reasons why people behave in unsafe ways. The first NAPO clip gives three scenarios that the delegates can be invited to comment on. Then the effect of experience is considered, and the fact that unsafe behaviour often results in an advantage (such as saving time) which encourages such behaviour in future. A second NAPO clip demonstrates this concept. This section also investigates motivation and Exercise 6 (Motivation) can be used to investigate what motivates people to behave in a safe manner. There is also a brief examination of safety culture.

Benefits of Getting it Right

The purpose of this section is to allow the benefits of working safely to be identified and discussed. Exercise 7 (Benefits) enables delegates to identify the benefits of good safety performance.

Achieving the ABC Goal

The purpose of this section is to allow the material already covered in the course to be related to the use of the STAARR and TASK card. Exercise 8 (Use of the STAARR and TASK card) is used in conjunction with the four short video clips of different accidents and incidents (Refit: The Pitfalls). This allows delegates to practise using the checklist in the STAARR and TASK card, in preparation for the test and also to practice using it on site. The end of course test is then carried out.
