Course Introduction

This one day health and safety course is designed to aid the understanding of potential hazards the construction worker faces on site.  It provides a practical summary of health, safety, welfare and environmental issues.  It identifies the delegates responsibilities for looking after themselves and others, outlines the employers 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 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.
