IOSH Safety, Health & Environment for Construction Workers has been specifically developed for the people who work in the construction industry. Every worker on site needs to understand their Health & Safety responsibilities due to the high risk environment they work in. According to IOSH worldwide over 60,000 people die every year in construction sites and there are 475 workplace incidents every minute hence this 1 day course is crucial to create awareness of safety and health for construction workers.
IOSH Safety, Health & Environment for Construction Workers is a CSCS approved certification which means that the skills and knowledge captured in the course enables the delegates to be eligible to apply for the Green Labourer allowing delegates to work at construction sites.
