This course is for those who have entered, or are about to enter, the construction and civil engineering industry as a member of the workforce, to help them understand the potential hazards that they face at work on site.
It provides a practical summary of health and safety, welfare and environmental issues identifying individual responsibilities for looking after themselves and others, what the employer’s duties are and what should be done if they think anyone’s health and safety is being put at risk.
Aims and objectives
The course aims to ensure that individual responsibilities are understood:
why they are carrying out their identified duties, and
what is expected of them, and
to ensure that they contribute to the safety of the workplace.
At the end of the course delegates will be able to:
understand the need to prevent accidents
have an understanding of health and safety law
identify how their role fits into the control and management of the site
understand the need for risk assessments and method statements
appreciate the need to perform safely and to stop and ask for advice if not sure
feel obliged to report unsafe acts to prevent an accident.
The method of assessment will be by multiple-choice questions at the end of the course, as well as being expected to be interactive during the course.
This course is an ideal introduction for obtaining a basic understanding of health and safety duties and responsibilities, and becoming aware of hazards and risks on site.
Upon successful completion of this course, a natural progression would be the Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) course.
Existing site managers, agents, surveyors and persons holding positions of managerial control should attend the Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course.
The maximum number of delegates per course will be 20.
