IOSH Safety, Health and Environment for Construction Workers
Employers around the world need to ensure workers stay safe at all times. This course is recognised by UK Build & The CITB and takes just one day, ensures you meet your safety, health and environmental obligations and makes an investment in your people that will be repaid in productivity, profit and brand improvement.
Safety, Health and Environment for Construction Workers provides the core knowledge your workers need to stay safe and embeds the good understanding and techniques needed to keep others safe too.
Consider the shocking fact that 60,000 people have died on construction sites and that there are 600 work-related accidents – every minute of the day. Hardly surprising, then, that accidents, illness and deaths cost business over £2 trillion in 2018.
This high-impact one-day course will take delegates through the set-up of a construction site in a relatable scenario that develops as the course progresses. Delegates will understand the importance of:
recognising and managing health risks and high risk activities
dealing with incidents
the wider environment

encourage your staff to take responsibility for themselvesand their colleagues
