Overview

IOSH’s globally-delivered, one-day, face-to-face Safety, Health and Environment for Construction Workers course provides essential knowledge for anyone who is involved in construction activities.

The course is approved by CITB so as an employer you can claim back a CITB levy from this course.

IOSH Working Safely is no longer an eligible course for the CSCS or ECS card, however, our Safety, Health and Environment for construction workers course is now approved.

The course provides the core knowledge your workers need to stay safe and embeds the good understanding and techniques needed to keep others safe too. Keeping your business healthy and safe with an effective training programme will enable you to reduce the cost of accidents and illness by up to 40 per cent.
