The NPORS Construction Safety Awareness Course has been mapped as a full equivalent to the QCF Level 1 Award Health and Safety in a Construction Environment. This means that in addition to plant operators undertaking this course, labourers who have achieved the NPORS Site Safety Awareness Course can apply for the CSCS green Labourers Card, once they have also passed the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Operatives Test.
The labourers card ensures that you possess the minimum requirements to work on a construction site, and you are competent with basic health and safety skills. For more information about the Labourers cards read our blog 'An Essential Site Skills Guide - Green CSCS Labourer Card'.
This course highlights potential hazards when working on site and provides practical advice on keeping yourself and your colleagues safe. It covers your individual and employer’s responsibilities, including what you can do if you think anyone’s health and safety is being put at risk.
This course provides health and safety awareness and is endorsed by Build UK as standard training for all operatives on site.
The content of this Safety Awareness Course has been updated to reflect changes in legislation and current practices. It also meets the requirements of the United Kingdom Contractors Group Health & Safety Training Standard.
