Description

This course begins by giving you an overview of construction safety which aims to ensure that a construction site or the industry as a whole does cause immediate danger to the public around a construction site or the workers at a construction site. Health and safety in construction are important because the industry is prone to hazardous situations and can be dangerous at times. You will learn how to ensure that the finished product of construction can meet the required safety standards.

You will then look into risk management and study the different risk assessment tools. With this course, you will learn about the method statement which is a description of how the work will be carried out safely by your team. You will learn that these documents are usually used for higher risk work, to provide information to employees about how the work should be done, and the precautions needed to be undertaken to ensure the safety of everyone involved.

The leading safety hazards on construction sites include falls, electrocutions, and being caught between or struck by objects. These hazards have caused injuries and deaths on construction sites throughout the world. Upon the completion of this course, you will be able to maintain an effective safety management system that will help increase productivity and morale in the workplace and gain a good knowledge of how to reduce the likelihood of accidents happening. Make sure to enrol in this course to learn all these, and more!
