During 2011 alone, there were 26,000 major workplace injuries reported in the UK with the frequent causes of injury being manual handling, trips and falling from heights. Many of these cases could have been prevented had the correct health and safety training been issued. Health and safety is an important aspect of everyday life and everyone deserves to go to work and be safe.
This IOSH working safely course is recognised as an equivalent to a level 1 award in health and safety in a construction environment. The course is popular with local authorities, factories, warehouses, construction, the leisure industry, restaurants, cafes, hotels, pubs, the voluntary sector and many more trades and businesses. Delegates who successfully complete IOSH working safely can apply for a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) Green Labourer Card once they've passed the CITB health, safety and environment operatives test. IOSH working safely isn't prescriptive to one area of expertise and the certification is general so can cover any trade or responsibility.
