Health and Safety Awareness Course and CSCS Test


The CITB Health and Safety Awareness course is aimed at operatives. This safety training course is a foundation course aimed at newcomers to the construction industry.

This one day course is to help operatives working in the construction industry to understand the potential hazards they face on site. It provides a practical summary of health, safety, welfare and environmental issues, identifying the delegate’s responsibility for looking after themselves and others. The course also 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.
