Health and Safety Awareness
This one-day Health and Safety Awareness course is designed to aid the understanding of potential hazards the construction worker may face on site. It provides a practical summary of health, safety, welfare and environmental issues.
It identifies the candidates responsibilities for looking after themselves and others, outlines the employers duties and explains what should be done if the worker thinks that anyones health and safety is being put at risk.
The course is an ideal foundation for those wishing to obtain an industry site card. It is also an alternative route to the QCF Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment for the CSCS Labourer Card. The course provides health and safety awareness and is endorsed by Build UK as standard training for all operatives on site. The aim of the course is to ensure the individual responsibilities of the worker are understood:
- Why they are carrying out their identified duties.
- What is expected of them.
- How they contribute to the safety of the workplace.
