FREE! Builders Code Leadership Training for Owners, Execs, and HR Managers

Vancouver Island Construction Association (VICA)
Who should take this course?

Senior Leaders, Managers and Executives, Business Owners, Human Resources Managers

What will you learn?

Builders Code training will show company leaders practical ways to build a positive site culture and ensure everyone on the worksite is safe and protected, working to their full potential. Employers often underestimate the financial impacts of hazing, harassment, and bullying on the worksite. These negative behaviours cause stress and distraction in the crew that can lead to turnover, lost time to accidents, injury related health care costs, legal actions, rehiring costs, and unproductivity.
In this FREE, one-day workshop, you’ll explore topics that include the nature and impact of unacceptable worksite conduct; how to enable and encourage an acceptable worksite culture; the tools that can be used to build that culture; and the benefits of doing so.
This workshop will focus on the role and responsibility of corporate leaders and companies whose management completes the training can use their Builders Code training certification to promote their company and culture to potential employees, as well as clients.

Course Material Covers:
  • Defining an Acceptable Worksite Culture
  • The Benefits of an Acceptable Worksite Culture
  • The Nature and Impact of Unacceptable Worksite Culture
  • Key Barriers to Acceptable Worksite Cultures and Conduct
  • Tools for Building Acceptable Worksite Cultures
  • Planning for Success
What is the Builders Code?

The Builders Code sets a standard code of conduct for workers on construction sites in BC. It defines an “Acceptable Worksite” as the starting point for reducing risk and ensuring a safe and productive environment for all workers. The Builders Code is intended to help construction employers communicate a reasonable, consistent behavior expectation to improve the safety, productivity and retention of skilled tradespeople, and reduce project risk. Builders Code training has been developed by experienced training providers in partnership with project partners including BCCA, the Industry Training Authority (ITA), WorkSafe BC, and the Minerva Foundation of BC.
