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 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.

IOSH has recently been informed by the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) that IOSH Working Safely will no longer be eligible for the Green Labourer card and that current eligibility will cease on 31 March 2020. However our Safety, Health and Environment for Construction Workers course is now approved.
