The first key reason to consider a NEBOSH construction course
is that it is designed specially to cover, in depth, possible risks to safety on site. With the construction sector being well known as an industry fraught with hazards, the moral, legal and economic ramifications of safety on site cannot be ignored. The NEBOSH construction course
helps you to meet these requirements, because it is specifically designed to develop awareness of and minimise the risks to operatives’ health. In particular the NCC1 module – “Managing and Controlling Hazards in Construction Activities,” includes how to deal with construction hazards such as working at height, demolition, vehicles, electrical, confined space, fire, chemicals and muscularskeletall issues. The NCC1 module, also address, the often overlooked issue of psychological wellbeing, which is now being recognised by employers as a key issue in reducing absence and sickness.
It affords you the recognition of an international professional body.
The NEBOSH scheme is globally recognised as a provider of advanced level training within the field of health and safety. The NEBOSH construction course
is pitched at National Qualification Framework (NQF), level three, which is in the same section as an A Level. In addition, successful candidates will be able to apply for Tech IOSH and AIIRSM membership and reap all the rewards associated with this, such as career progress development, networking opportunities, access to information including regular updates, news letters, help lines and online materials, the use of post nominal for your business card and correspondence and exclusive members events. Therefore an individual completing the course, benefits from this recognition within their current role and as an added strength on their CV and the company has peace of mind that their employee is trained to a level where they will be effective and that is recognised by potential customers.
Flexible, modular options to fit round your company
There are several modes of learning available for candidates wanting to complete the NEBOSH construction course,
which means you can fit how you complete the course to your businesses schedule.
The first is the face to face, open course. This is when candidates attend the courses with delegates from other companies at the provider’s venue. This is most beneficial if you are a lone delegate or a small group of delegates. You get the benefits of interacting with the tutor and bouncing ideas off other members of the group on a day to day basis. You also get the all important chance to expand your network with others in your industry.
The second option for the NEBOSH construction course
is the in house option. This is where the training provider comes to your place of work and delivers the course there. The benefit of this mode of learning is that the course can be specifically tailored to suit your particular needs. In addition, if you have a medium to large group of candidates, significant saving can be made in completing the course in this fashion.
The third option is distance learning. This is where the training provider sends out the learning materials and you work through the course at your own pace. Online and phone assistance is also available. The benefit of doing it in this way, is that you can focus on areas where you feel that you need to develop your knowledge. It is also a cheaper option and you do not have to have any time away from site, saving your company time and money.
