What Health and Safety Courses Should You Complete For Construction?
Whether your team is simply carrying delivery boxes, or handling heavy equipment, knowing how to lift and carry properly can help to prevent injury and strains. In our Manual Handling course, we teach you about basic postural awareness, correct handling techniques, how to choose the right mechanical aids, and potential risks.
Slips, Trips, and Falls
This training course will help bring awareness to your team about potential hazards on a site that can cause dangerous slips, trips, or falls. Our comprehensive online course will introduce control measures that will help prevent or minimise the probability of dangerous occurrences being realised., as well as teach how to spot, assess, and report risks.
Working At Heights
Working at heights happens almost daily on many construction sites. Even if you are working as little as two meters off the ground, or if you are working on top of a ten-storey building, you must have adequate training to meet 2005 regulations. Our Working at Heights course will give all the right knowledge to be able to safely carry out tasks at any height.
If you are keen to find out more about when working at heights training is required, read one of our recent blog posts. In the post linked, we discuss the importance of training, whether it’s a legal requirement, and what you would learn when undertaking a course.
First Aid at Work
Whilst more in-depth first aid training may be required for senior members of staff on site, having basic first aid knowledge is beneficial for everyone. In the First Aid at Work course, your staff will learn how to manage an accident scene, how to perform CPR, how to offer basic medical assistance to casualties, and how to accurately document medical details and vital information.
Many of your employees on a construction site may not be aware of the extent of materials that contain dangerous asbestos fibres, causing a potential risk of them being disturbed. This course is especially important if your team is working on premises that were built before the year 2002.

Who Is Responsible For Health and Safety On A Construction Site?
As an employer, you and your main contractors are the ones responsible for ensuring the health and safety of your team - in whatever form that may be. Your staff should also play a part, in reporting risks where needed, using the correct equipment, and following the latest best practice.
What Is The Importance Of Construction Phase Plans?
Alongside health and safety training courses, you must also have the correct documents in place to keep within laws and regulations. Construction phase plans should be completed for all construction projects, no matter how big or small. A construction phase plan outlines everyone involved with the project, all of the possible risks on site, and the control measures that are in place to eliminate them.
If you’d like to find out more about why you should complete a construction phase plan, and what exactly they should include, read one of our informative blog posts - ’What is a Construction Phase Plan?’.
