E Learning

Each year in the UK, people are killed, injured and suffer work-related illnesses while carrying out

their jobs.

So Health & Safety is a significant concern. The government, employers and workers all have an

essential role to play in reducing deaths and accidents and preventing ill-health at work.

This course is aimed at people starting out in the construction industry and can be used as part of

their induction process or as preparation for the online accredited exam. Whilst this course, Level 1
