This course is ideal for:
- ANYBODY WHO WISHES TO WORK IN CONSTRUCTION
This Site Safety course is the mandatory industry standard for those who have finished one of the trades (bricklaying, plastering, plumbing etc.), and wish to work on site. It proves that individuals have acquired the necessary training to be able to carry out their line of work.
Our course is also a popular alternative because it enables you to take your CSCS Test without the requirement of a level 2 construction qualification. This course underlines the key potential hazards on site and compiles a trust worthy set of guidelines and advice on maintaining your safety. Successful candidates will be awarded the CITB Health and Safety Awareness Certificate, renewable every 5 years.
The course is finalised by passing a HS&E (Health, Safety & Environment Awareness) paper based question paper, comprised of 25 questions. Upon passing this Health & Safety Awareness test, you will have gained a firm and confident understanding of the laws on health and safety and how to report potential hazards in prevention of accidents, which will get you working on site in no time! Our course is completed over the duration of just one day, you can then come in only 48 hours later to sit your CSCS HS&E test (Health, Safety & Environment), or any other time that suits you!
