Health & Safety Awareness (Green CSCS Card)
Who should attend the course?
The Health & Safety Awareness course is aimed at operatives who work on any type of building site and in any trade.
CITB state that school leavers under the age of 18 require parental consent to sit the course. If you are booking for someone under the age of 18, please download the parental consent form from the downloads tab and send the completed form to email@example.com prior to the course start date.
What will they get out of it?
The course provides a practical summary of health, safety, welfare and environmental issues, ensuring individuals understand the potential hazards they may face on site, whilst identifying the individual’s responsibility for looking after themselves and others.
The training highlights legal rights and responsibilities under the Health & Safety at Work Act, as well as tackling other general site issues. These include considerations for both work at height and in the ground, fire, COSHH, noise, vibration, asbestos and some basic documentation requirements, including risk assessments, method statements and inductions. A natural progression from this course would be to attend the Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS).
Delegates will be provided with the GE707 – Safe Start publication from the CITB.
Assessing Learning Outcomes
Following completion of the course, there will be a multiple-choice test to evaluate delegates’ learning.
