The aim of the project "Building safely – Enhanced education for safety and health construction co-ordinators in the Nordic countries" was to analyse the need to strengthen training for safety and health construction co-ordinators and discuss the development of a model for a common standard of excellence in the Nordic countries, e.g. a certification scheme. The main activity was to run a two-day workshop for Nordic experts. Norway, Sweden, Finland, the Faroe Islands and Denmark participated.



The report presents a review of the legislation in the Nordic countries on training of safety and health construction co-ordinators, especially the qualifications and educational requirements. Good principles for safety and health construction co-ordination and discussions from the workshop is presented.

Summary of discussions

For inspiration on certification schemes, presentations were given by ISHCOO (see box), Green Building Council Denmark and Dansk Projektledelse (IPMA certification) on their frameworks. The aim was to learn about their approach to developing and establishing a well-regarded certification scheme. The focus was both on the development process and on the structure and contents of the scheme.
