Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment
This qualification gives people who are already working, or wanting to work, in the construction industry, the essential knowledge to manage health and safety. Passing this qualification also allows them to take their CITB test and to apply for their CSCS card.
The qualification is designed for people already working, or wanting to work, in the UK construction industry; all construction businesses have a legal responsibility to provide their employees with relevant health and safety training. A high standard of health and safety protects employees’ and consumers’ health and helps to maintain the reputation of the business.
This qualification will provide apprentices and experienced workers with the knowledge and skills they need to apply for their CSCS card (Labourer Card / Green Card) and take the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test.
Having a valid CSCS card and passing the CITB test are both mandatory requirements of working in the construction industry because they grant employees access to UK construction sites as non-skilled workers.
