Health and Safety Awareness in Construction

This one-day course is designed to aid the understanding of potential hazards the construction worker may 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; outlining the employer’s duties; and explaining 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. This course is also an alternative route to the QCF Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment for the CSCS Labourer Card. 

This course is for those who have entered, or are about to enter, the construction and civil engineering industry as a member of the workforce to help them understand the potential hazards that they face at work on site. It aims to provide a practical summary of health and safety, welfare and environmental health and safety issues.

To ensure the individual responsibilities are understood: 

  • why they are carrying out their identified roles 
  • what is expected of them 
  • how they contribute to the safety of the workplace.

At the end of the day the delegates will be able to: 

  • understand the need to prevent accidents 
  • have an understanding of health and safety law 
  • identify how their role fits into the control and management of the site 
  • understand the need for risk assessments and method statements 
  • appreciate the need to perform safely and to stop and ask for advice if not sure 
  • report unsafe acts to prevent an accident

Successful delegates will be awarded an NOCN Health and Safety Awareness in Construction Certificate valid for 5 years. It takes approximately 4-6 weeks for NOCN to issue certification.
