Course Aims

Each year in the UK, people are killed, injured and suffer work-related illnesses while carrying out
their jobs.

So Health & Safety is a significant concern. The government, employers and workers all have an
essential role to play in reducing deaths and accidents and preventing ill-health at work.
This course is aimed at people starting out in the construction industry and can be used as part of
their induction process or as preparation for the online accredited exam. Whilst this course, Level 1
Health & Safety in a Construction environment provides you with a qualification in its own right, it
can also form part of your CSCS green card application.

The course starts with an introduction to the legal aspects of health and safety before covering the
basics of risk assessment and safe working practices. It then goes into detail to cover the most
common hazards encountered in construction environments from Working at Height and
Respiratory Hazards to electrical and chemical hazards
