Safety, Health and Environment for Construction Workers

Every worker needs an understanding of their safety and health responsibilities

Consider the shocking fact that 60,000 people 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.

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

Approved by citb and Build UK.
