Consider the shocking fact that
60,000 people worldwide die on construction sites every year and there are 475
work-related accidents a minute. Hardly surprising, then, that accidents, illness,
and deaths cost businesses over £2 trillion annually.

Health and Environment for Construction Workers course provides essential knowledge for anyone who is involved in construction activities. It
is suitable for any geographical location and for any size of organisation.
The course provides the core
knowledge your workers need to stay safe and works to embed a good
understanding of the techniques needed to keep others safe too. Keeping

We have ensured that the practical,
jargon-free nature of the course will meet the needs of every learner.
