Designed to give candidates an overall awareness of health and safety and how it affects their daily role, It should be a stepping stone or inductive level training for the CITB Health, safety and environment test or simply as refresher training.
The awareness course is the first step towards achieving a CSCS Labourers Card (Green Card) and then onto the progressive CITB Site Safety Plus suite of courses that range from training for operatives into the industry up to senior manager / director. The SSSTS Course for supervisors or the SMSTS Course for site managers
