Certification BAS-P and BAS-U

It is a competitive advantage to be a certified construction work environment coordinator. It is proof of your competence, and some clients require a third-party issued certificate.

Trainor offers a certification exam which, upon passing, allows you to apply for certification through RISE.

What do the different roles of builder, BAS-P, and BAS-U entail?

The builder is the person or company that commissions construction or engineering work. The builder has overall responsibility for preventing ill health and accidents during the construction phase and for ensuring a good working environment at a future workplace. The new regulations require you as a builder to be involved and active in health and safety issues throughout the entire construction project. The builder appoints BAS-P and BAS-U but is not relieved of responsibility for the tasks that BAS-P and BAS-U have, a so-called Backup responsibility.

BAS-P, where the P stands for planning and design, is appointed by the builder or contractor. BAS-P can be a physical or legal person. There can only be one BAS-P. BAS-P must prepare a work environment plan for the entire construction project before the construction site is established. Additionally, BAS-P must ensure that the designers work to prevent occupational health and safety risks and report back to the builder in the event of serious risks.

BAS-U, where the U stands for execution, must follow and update the work environment plan written by BAS-P. The construction work environment coordinator must also ensure that colleagues consider the shared environment, for example, when choosing work methods. The coordinator can request risk assessments with action descriptions as a basis for adapting the work environment plan.

BAS-U must also coordinate the control of other contractors and ensure that they comply with occupational health and safety regulations and the work environment plan. If any of the construction work environment coordinators' tasks are not completed, the builder risks facing sanction fees.

When are BAS-P and BAS-U needed?

Even though BAS-P and BAS-U are two different roles with distinct tasks, they essentially require the same knowledge and adherence to the same work regulations. But what does it mean to be a construction work environment coordinator, and what knowledge do you need?

The simplest way to describe it is to say that it involves all the tasks required to construct, maintain, and demolish a building or facility.

Going into more detail, it is necessary when a work environment plan needs to be established, and therefore a construction work environment coordinator or BAS-P and BAS-U must be appointed. This applies when the work is classified under the Swedish Work Environment Authority's regulation AFS 1999:3.

It is always the employer's responsibility to ensure that tasks requiring a construction work environment coordinator have a BAS-P and a BAS-U. The builder is the one who appoints the coordinators.

Below are some examples of tasks that require a construction work environment coordinator.
