Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment

The Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment qualification is perfect for anyone currently working or who wants to work in construction, as well as those already in the industry looking to refresh their knowledge.

Having a valid CSCS card and passing the CITB test are both mandatory requirements for working in the construction industry because they grant employees access to UK construction sites as non-skilled workers.

The Labourer Card qualification was developed in partnership with the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB).

The Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment is regulated by the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF).
