Level 1 Health and Safety in a Construction Environment (Leading to CSCS Green/Labourer Card)
The Online Level 1 Health and Safety in a Construction Environment course (RQF) is designed for those working on construction sites and is a requirement for those wishing to apply for a CSCS Green/Labourer Card. In accordance with CITB, anyone who is a labourer on a construction site must be a CSCS Green/Labourer Card holder.
Each year in the UK, people are killed, injured, and suffer work-related illnesses while carrying out their jobs. So, health & safety is a significant concern. The government, employers and workers all have an essential role to play in reducing deaths and accidents and preventing ill-health at work.
This course is aimed at people starting out in the construction industry and can be used as part of their induction process or as preparation for the online accredited exam. Whilst this course provides you with a qualification in its own right, it can also form part of your CSCS Green/Labourer Card application.
The course starts with an introduction to the legal aspects of health and safety before covering the basics of risk assessment and safe working practices. It then goes into detail to cover the most common hazards encountered in construction environments from Working at Height and Respiratory Hazards to electrical and chemical hazards.
