This one-day course is designed to help those who are about to or have just begun to work in the industry to understand the potential hazards they face on site.
It provides a practical summary of health, safety, welfare and environmental issues, identifying the delegate’s responsibility for looking after themselves and others; outlines the employer’s duties; and explains what should be done if the worker thinks that anyone’s health and safety is being put at risk.
The course is an ideal foundation for those wishing to obtain an industry accreditation card.
This course is also an alternative route to the QCF Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment for the CSCS Labourer Card.
Aims & Objectives:
This course aims to ensure that individual responsibilities are understood:
- Why they are carrying out their identified duties, and
