The course will examine the potential construction site hazards and offer practical safety advice. It will also clarify what responsibilities both you and your employer have, as well as what to do if you believe someone is being put at risk. Once you’ve successfully completed this course, and the “Health, Safety & Environment CSCS Test” candidates will be eligible to apply for a CSCS green labourer card.
