Overview/Who Should Attend

This one-day course is 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, identifying the delegate’s responsibility for looking after themselves and others; outlining the employer’s duties; and explaining 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.

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


To ensure the individual responsibilities are understood:

  • why they are carrying out their identified duties
  • what is expected of them
  • how they contribute to the safety of the workplace


At the end of the day delegates will be able to:

  • understand the need to prevent accidents
  • have an understanding of health and safety law
  • identify how their role fits into the control and management of the site
  • understand the need for risk assessments and method statements
  • appreciate the need to perform safely, and to stop and ask for advice if not sure
  • report unsafe acts to prevent an accident.


Assessment will be by multiple-choice question paper at the end of the course. Delegates are also expected to actively participate during the course. The delegates must obtain 25 marks out of 30 (83%) or more in order to pass the examination. 

CSCS cards

This course is also an alternative route to the QCF Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment for the CSCS Labourer Card.

Delegates need to complete the one day course and CITB HS&E Operatives test which is booked separately. When both have been completed and you have received the relevant certification you can then apply for your CSCS card.

Please contact our training department to book your CITB HS&E test.


The CITB certificate is valid for 5 years. Delegates should complete the full course again to renew their certification. 

CITB Grants

If your company is CITB registered, please provide your CITB levy number upon booking. Delegates will need to provide their full name, address, national insurance number and date of birth if you would like to claim for a grant, failure to do so will mean the delegates' achievement will not be uploaded and your grant will not be paid. Please provide the information to the training team before the course to avoid delay
