What is optional management?
The technical management of installations consists of the supervision and making of technical decisions by a qualified technician who is responsible for the correct execution of the installation.
The technician must be a member of a professional association and have civil liability insurance. He or she will sign a certificate of commencement of the work and from that moment onwards, everything that happens on the site may have direct responsibilities.
This technician will also be responsible for the health and safety of all the workers on the site, checking that all the workers are wearing the necessary safety PPE and that all the points on the site comply with the necessary safety measures.
Apart from safety, he will also be responsible for the quality control of the installation, asking all the industrialists for certificates of materials installed, tests and homologations.
Normally, for minor works, there is only one construction manager who is in charge of supervising the construction and installation parts. But when the work is already of considerable dimensions, there is an optional director for the building work and another director for all the installations.
