•Carry out regular monitoring visits to developments and provide advice and guidance on the application of standards. Compile electronic reports on standards observed and evaluate overall management based on a bespoke rating system.

•Ensure suitable support and advice is provided to all site management and regional staff and ensure that reports of incidents, accidents and ill health are appropriately investigated.

•Ensure serious breaches of policy, procedures and legislation are brought immediately to the attention of the Contracts Manager/Construction Director, and ensure action is taken regarding issues raised by liaising with Enforcement Officers.
