Our first-class course will be delivered by IOSH’s quality-assured network of approved trainers in
an easy-to-understand format.

Course Information

The opportunities are global – so are the challenges.

That’s why, as a business-led organisation, we have collaborated with the top-performing global construction firms and safety and health professionals to ensure that this course is entirely fit-for-purpose.

We have considered that you may have a rapid turnover of staff, all with varying levels of understanding about safety and health and a differing range of communication skills.

We have ensured that the practical, jargon-free nature of Safety, Health and Environment for Construction Workers will meet the needs of every learner.

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:

– Site safety
– Recognising and managing health risks and high risk activities
– Dealing with incidents
– The wider environment

As well as learning to keep themselves safe, delegates will be taught how to spot common hazards and improve safety performance across the site. Safety, Health and Environment for Construction Workers will foster team working and encourage your staff to take responsibility for themselves and their colleagues.

It’s a significant and worthwhile achievement. Successful delegates will be pleased to be awarded an internationally-recognised IOSH certificate and/or passport card.

The course will be contextualised to meet the specific needs of your business. That means your delegates will be able to apply everything they learn to their own day-to-day work.

They will operate at a higher level of competence as a result and you will feel the benefits in terms of reduced levels of accidents and fewer absences through sickness.

Who should attend?

Anyone who works on or around a construction site or has cause to visit the site in the course of their work.
Remember, it is your responsibility to provide your staff with the training to ensure your site is fully compliant with safety, health and environmental regulations.
