The course provides construction operatives and those who are about to enter the construction and civil engineering industry, with an awareness of site health and safety and how it affects their role and work. A key focus is developing understanding and raising awareness of the potential hazards to be found on a construction site.
Includes a practical overview of health and safety, welfare and environmental issues; clearly identifying an individual’s responsibilities and what they should do if they believe that anyone’s health and safety is being put at risk.
