This one-day Health and safety awareness (HSA) 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. 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 Laborer Card.
The course provides health and safety awareness and is endorsed by Build UK as standard training for all operatives on site.
Assessment will be by an end of course examination. The delegate must pass the exam in order to achieve certification for this course. We suggest you share this information with the delegates at the beginning of the day.
The examination paper forms the basis of the assessment as to whether or not a delegate has successfully achieved a satisfactory level of health and safety awareness to allow a certificate of achievement to be issued.
Delegates must be competent in English at operative level. The course content is suited to all ability levels.
