Dedicated to improving sector skills to create a positive approach to pre-empting error.

GIRI training

GIRI has worked with the construction industry to develop three custom-designed training schemes to directly target the underlying root causes of error, which currently cost the UK construction industry approximately 20% of their turnover. The training empowers companies, project teams, and individuals to Get It Right first time.

These schemes have been stringently tested on more than 800 delegates, from 60 construction organisations, to ensure they deliver maximum impact on error reduction and productivity for the construction industry. 

The courses were developed by industry, for industry, and can play a significant part in helping to reduce the frequency and cost of error in construction by ensuring all industry workers develop the right skills to collaboratively understand, pre-empt and avoid error in their daily work. 

Watch our short video which explains more about the training we have developed.

 

Delivery

All courses can be delivered remotely to accommodate Covid-19 restrictions on social distancing, and to include staff who are working at home. 

Courses can also be delivered face-to-face to suit companies where personnel are co-located. 

The three schemes are:

  • Leadership Training (Strategies to eliminate error for leaders of construction projects and organisations)
  • Training Across Interfaces (Avoiding construction errors at interfaces)
  • Supervisors & Management Skills (Reducing errors on construction sites)

Companies can book courses to be run in-house, or individuals can attend pre-arranged 'open' courses.
