CITB Health & Safety Awareness (HSA)

  • Covent Garden
    18 March 2022
    9:00 am - 5:00 pm

This course can be the first step towards a CSCS Labourers Card (Green Card) and to the progressive CITB Site Safety Plus courses that range from the training of operatives through to Supervisors, Site Managers and Directors.

This one-day course would benefit those who are about to or have just begun to work in the industry to understand the potential hazards they face on site. It provides a practical summary of health, safety, welfare and environmental issues, identifying the delegate’s responsibility 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 is an ideal foundation for those wishing to obtain an industry accreditation card.

We can offer this course at centres all over the UK or at your chosen premises with prices starting at £130+VATpp.
