CITB Health and Safety Awareness – 1 Day
If you prefer, you can arrange to have this course delivered at your own premises anywhere within the UK. For dates and prices please, contact us.
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.
The HSA course provides health and safety awareness and is endorsed by Build UK as standard training for all operatives on site.
Aims and Objectives
To ensure that individual responsibilities are understood:
- why they are carrying out their identified duties
- what is expected of them
- how they contribute to the safety of the workplace
At the end of the course 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.
Delegates must be competent in English at operative level. The course content is suited to all ability levels.
Assessment will be by multiple-choice question paper at the end of the course. Delegates are also expected to actively participate during the course.
A natural progression from this course would be to attend the Site Supervision Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) or a Supervisor Specialist Skills course.
Existing site managers, agents, surveyors and persons holding positions of managerial control should attend the Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course.
