Construction Health and Safety Courses


Health and safety is something that should always come first on a construction site. Making sure the site is consistently operating in a way that is safe for all individuals present is an absolute priority. 

Taking, and keeping up to date with, relevant health and safety courses will give you the knowledge and confidence to allow these practices to become second nature, so that you have more headspace to deal with the job at hand. 

It’s equally important for all workers on site to have taken health and safety courses so that they can all be responsible for their individual safety and the safety of others. But what courses are available, and which ones should they be taking?

At TUTS Training Group, we have a range of health and safety courses available for a variety of different types of work and job roles.

Asbestos Awareness

This training is mandatory for any persons whose work involves the disturbance of the fabric of a building. This includes jobs roles like building contractors, decorators, plumbers and electrical engineers. 

The course is designed to surpass HSE requirements to ensure all delegates are fully aware of the legal obligations and can conduct their work in a manner that will be safe for them and their customers.

This training is essential for any worker who will be involved in the disturbance or removal of Non-Licensable Asbestos-Containing Materials (ACMs). These could be in corrugated roof sheets, downpipes, Artex ceilings, etc. 

Anyone who completes this course will then be able to legally and safely work with Notifiable Non-Licensable ACMs. The training covers full removal of these items, as well as ancillary tasks like drilling, cutting and repair work.

Harness Awareness Training

This course allows delegates to identify and select the appropriate safety harness and lanyard needed for particular situations. After taking the course, they will be able to inspect, maintain, monitor, fit and use the harnesses effectively. 

This will be particularly important for anyone working at height or supporting colleagues who are working at height.

Confined Space Awareness

This course is essential for anyone who manages, controls, or works in a confined space. As an entirely classroom-based course, there is no practical aspect to this particular course.
