Health & Safety Awareness (One Day) Course

The course will provide a basic introduction to understanding potential construction site hazards and how everyone can contribute to keeping the workplace safe.

Delegates will be given the knowledge to identify individual responsibilities for looking after themselves and others, what the employer’s duties are and what should be done if anyone’s health and safety is being put at risk.


The course will ensure that individual responsibilities are understood:

  • Why they are carrying out their identified duties
  • What is expected of them
  • Contributing to the safety of the workplace

Learning Objectives

By the end of course, the delegate will know:

  • The need to prevent accidents
  • The Health and Safety Law – including the Health and Safety Act, and its surrounding regulations, concerning the construction industry
  • How their role fits into the control and management of the construction site
  • The need for risk assessments and method statements
  • The need to perform safely and to stop and ask for advice if not sure
  • How to report unsafe acts to prevent an accident


To complete the H&S Awareness course, delegates must be involved in the classroom-based discussion and complete individual and/or group presentations. Delegates are expected to participate throughout the course and score 20 out of 25 on the final multiple-choice assessment.
