Who Should Attend?
This one-day course is designed to help those who are about to work, 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.
A natural progression from this course would be to attend The Site Supervisors’ Safety Training Scheme or a Supervisor Specialist Skills course.
The minimum entry equipment is a good understanding of spoken and written English.
Successful candidates will gain knowledge and skills in:
- Their individual responsibilities for their own safety and the safety of others
- Typical construction hazards and how these are controlled
- How everyone can help achieve better practical standards of safety on site
- Legal requirements and liabilities
- Working at height
- Manual Handling
- Fire prevention
