Who Should Attend

This Health and Safety Awareness course is to help those who are about to work, or have just begun to work in the construction industry – to understand the potential hazards they face on site.

Please note, that for insurance purposes, we cannot accept anyone under the age of 18 onto any of our courses.

Course Content

The course identifies employee responsibilities for looking after themselves and others, to help them understand why they are carrying out their identified duties while explaining what is expected of them to ensure that they contribute to the safety of the workplace. Delegates will be able to understand the need to prevent accidents, have an understanding of health and safety law, identify how their role fits into the control and management of the site, understand the need for risk assessments and method statements and appreciate the need to perform safely and to stop and ask for advice if not sure.  Furthermore it will raise awareness of the need to be reporting of unsafe acts to prevent an accident or further re-occurrence of unsafe acts. It is an ideal foundation for those wishing to obtain an industry accreditation card as it helps with preparation for the CITB Health & Safety Test. A natural progression from this course would be to attend the Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme.

Assessment & Award

The method of assessment will be by a 30 minute, 25 question, objective multiple-choice examination at the end of the course, as well as being expected to be interactive during the course. Successful candidates will be awarded the CITB Construction Site Operatives Safety Certificate.


This is a one day event – 8.30 am – 5 pm. The Certificate lasts for five years, after which the course would need to be retaken in order to renew the certificate and keep the qualification up-to-date.


Typical fees for open courses are £120 plus VAT per person; however this can vary for in-house courses (dependant on location and numbers).  As part of the fees each candidate will receive Construction Skills GE707 – Construction Health & Safety Awareness, currently retailing at £12.50, and certification at £37.50.


We run open Health and Safety Awareness courses regularly in our Training Centre in Rainham Kent or we are happy to travel to your location if suitable facilities are available.

A Polite Notice

It pays to be selective when booking training courses because not all training providers are what they appear to be. When booking a Health & Safety Awareness Course you need to feel assured that your training provider is fully accredited to provide that training and is not then going to sub-contract the work. Lighthouse Safety Training are fully accredited by CITB to provide the Health & Safety Awareness course and proof of that accreditation can be seen on our accreditation page.
