Course Overview

This course is for those who have entered, or are about to enter, the construction and civil engineering industry as a member of the workforce, to help them understand the potential hazards that they face at work on site. It provides a practical summary of health and safety, welfare and environmental issues identifying individual responsibilities for looking after themselves and others, what the employer’s duties are and what should be done if they think anyone’s health and safety is being put at risk.

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.

  • Why you are carrying out your identified duties
  • What is expected of you
  • To ensure that you contribute to the safety of the workplace

At the end of the course learners will be able to:

  • Understand the need to prevent accidents
  • Have an understanding of health and safety law
  • Identify how your role fits into the control and management of the site
  • Understand the need for risk assessments and method statements
  • Appreciate the need to perform safely and to stop and ask for advice if not sure
  • Feel obliged to report unsafe acts to prevent an accident

Assessment Methods

The method of assessment will be by multiple-choice questions at the end of the course, as well as being expected to be interactive during the course.

Progression Options

Upon successful completion of this course, a natural progression would be the Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) course.
