Who will benefit
This course is for those who have entered, or are about to enter the construction and civil engineering industry as a member of the workforce, and is designed to aid the understanding potential hazards the construction worker may face on site.

It identifies the delegate’s responsibilities 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.
