CITB Health and Safety Awareness: Site Safety Plus


This introductory CITB training course is part of the Site Safety Plus range of CITB courses and is aimed at operatives and newcomers to the construction industry.  It is an ideal foundation course for those wishing to obtain an industry accreditation certificate and can be used to obtain your green CSCS card.

It 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. It identifies the delegate’s responsibilities for looking after themselves and others, outlines the employer’s duties and explains 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 site card. It 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 course provides health and safety awareness and is endorsed by Build UK as standard training for all operatives on site.
