Free Workshop – A Winning Formula For Health and Safety Accreditation 13th November, 2019

Description

Join a live health and safety assessment and complete it in real time.

Workshop Outline

As a business within the construction sector, your clients are often looking for health and safety assurance without having to spend a lot of time and resources on verifying your business. This is where having the right health and safety accreditations can not only help you reassure your clients, but also help establish a competitive edge when applying for opportunities.

In this workshop we will give you an overview of some of the most popular health and safety accreditation schemes and go through the online assessment processes. We will do this by taking you through the assessment questions, the basic requirements and the types of documents you need to submit.

We will introduce you to the following:

  • CHAS
  • Safecontractor
  • Constructionline/ Altius Accreditation
  • Safety Schemes in Procurement
  • Training requirements and competence

You will also find out what you do not have in place and may need to prepare for.

Workshop Outcomes

The main outcomes of the workshop are that you will appreciate:

  • The differences and similarities between the different accreditations
  • What you do not have in place
  • What you need to prepare for
  • The resources required to achieve the accreditations

You will be able to walk away with an ‘Action Plan’ of what you need to do to achieve your chosen health and safety accreditation.

Who should attend?

This workshop is primarily for construction companies or those in the construction supply chain, however any company that has been asked to attain this accreditation are welcome to attend.

Procurement and Tendering – How it Works

Thursday 17th October 2019

ERA Associates Training are delighted to announce the first workshop in their procurement and tendering series, working with East London Business Place, Building Legacies.

Description

It’s no longer enough to compete only on price and as buying organisations become more risk-averse, they need to manage their own liabilities by asking about supplier’s performance and procedural controls. Many small businesses have difficulty converting to a more competitive approach, as they are less likely to have all the supporting evidence and documentation required to answer the buyer’s questions.

Outline
Larger value and public sector contract opportunities are advertised in portals, so SMMEs need to know where to find them and how to sign up. There is also a skill in identifying those opportunities that are worth pursuing and those where time will not be spent usefully. Organisations need to have criteria in place to assist with opportunity selection to maximise results. In this workshop you will look at:

  • Procurement processes and legal framework
  • Find out where/how opportunities are advertised – registering and using e-portals
  • Learn the difference between an EOI, PQQ and ITT
  • How to respond to an opportunity and deadlines
  • Understand implications for you as a supplier

Outcomes

By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  • Decide if you are ready for competitive procurement
  • Find, prepare for and respond to competitive opportunities
  • Define your own strategy and planning process for the PQQ and tendering process

Who should attend:

You should attend this workshop if you are a director or senior manager from a company:

  • looking at a medium to long term strategy to grow the business
  • looking for new opportunities
  • wanting to get started on PQQs / Tenders, but don’t know where to start

If you are already successfully completing PQQs / Tenders, then this workshop is probably not for you.
