This 1 day course is aimed at those who have entered, or are about to enter, the construction and civil engineering industry as a member of the workforce to help them understand the potential hazards that they face at work on-site.
Delegates will gain an understanding of their individual responsibilities for their own safety and the safety of others on site. Typical construction hazards and how these are controlled will be examined, demonstrating how everyone can help achieve better practical standards of safety on site.
