Every worker needs an understanding of their Health and Safety responsibilities

Consider the shocking fact that 60,000 people worldwide die on construction sites every year and there are 475 work-related accidents a minute. Hardly surprising, then, that accidents, illness and deaths cost business over £2 trillion annually.

IOSH’s globally-delivered, one-day, face-to-face Safety, Health and Environment for Construction Workers course provides essential knowledge for anyone who is involved in construction activities. It’s suitable for any geographical location and for any size of organisation.

The course provides the core knowledge your workers need to stay safe and embeds the good understanding and techniques needed to keep others safe too. Keeping your business healthy and safe with an effective training programme will enable you to reduce the cost of accidents and illness by up to 40 per cent.

We have ensured that the practical, jargon-free nature of the course will meet the needs of every learner.

This course has been approved by CITB and Build UK, which means our courses are aligned to the Build UK Training Standard and employers can access the CITB levy.

CSCS approval means that the course will equip delegates with the knowledge and skills required to be eligible to apply for the Green Labourer card - allowing them to work on construction sites in entry-level positions.


Who is Safety, Health and Environment for Construction Workers for?

It’s very much focused on helping delegates to understand what they need to know, and how they can benefit from working in a healthier and safer way.

The course provides workers with the knowledge that they’ll be able to use in their day-to-day roles. The course can be customised to suit either a cohort of workers from a single company or construction workers from a range of organisations.

The innovative course is woven around a single scenario and case study which is developed at each stage of the course, giving delegates the opportunity to put their acquired skills into practice in the training room.

Understanding legislation, policy and practice in a given territory is crucial for any construction manager. Therefore we have ensured that the section on legislation can be tailored to local contexts. It sets out a global standard, with underlying principles on good practice. With this, delegates can be confident they are taught to the same high standards, whatever the location. 

Safety, Health and Environment for Construction Workers covers:

  1.  health and safety issues to be managed in the construction industry to protect employees, contractors, neighbours and others
  2.  the basics of local law
  3.  the importance of risk assessments and method statements and the development process.
  4.  site requirements for the welfare of construction workers on site
  5.  hazards and controls associated with construction sites andactivities including working at height and confined spaces
  6.  site environmental management including management of waste and ecology.

Delegates will be able to demonstrate understanding of the course syllabus by taking an end-of-course exam. On successful completion of the exam, delegates will receive an IOSH certificate.



What will employers get?

  1. globally-recognised and respected certificated training for their workers
  2. peace of mind offered by training that’s designed and quality-assured by the Chartered body for safety and health professionals
  3. a course that can be delivered in time-slots that suit the business 
  4. fewer hours lost due to sickness and accidents, resulting in greater productivity
  5. improved, company-wide safety awareness culture and appreciation for safety measures
  6. proactive staff involvement to improve the workplace
