Course description

CITB Health & Safety Awareness

The course can be the first step towards a CSCS Labourers Card (Green Card) and to the progressive CITB Site Safety Plus courses that range from the training of operatives through to Supervisors, Site Managers and Directors.

This one-day course would benefit those who are about to or have just begun to work in the industry to understand the potential hazards they face on site. It provides a practical summary of health, safety, welfare and environmental issues, identifying the participant's responsibility for looking after themselves and others; outlines the employer’s duties; and explains what should be done if the worker thinks that anyone’s health and safety is being put at risk. The course is an ideal foundation for those wishing to obtain an industry accreditation card.

Assessment will be by multiple choice question paper at the end of the course. Participants are also expected to be interactive during the course.
