Quantity:

Gaining this CITB Health and Safety Awareness qualification counts as one step towards the two-step process of gaining your CSCS Labour card. It acts as an alternative route to the QCF Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment and tends to be the preferred qualification by many employers.

This course is delivered in one day, designed to aid the understanding of potential hazards the construction worker may face on site.

It provides a practical summary of health, safety, welfare and environmental issues. 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.

The course provides health and safety awareness and is endorsed by Build UK as standard training for operatives.

Certification for this course is valid for 5 years. To remain certified in this area, you will need to take a refresher course before the expiry date on your certificate, otherwise the full course will need to be retaken.

Please be aware that certificates may take up to 8 weeks to be processed and delivered from CITB. If you have recently completed a course you can evidence your qualification by viewing your up-to-date training record on the Online CITB Card Checker
