The construction industry involves many different trades and workers all working together towards a common goal. That goal may be to build a house or a shopping centre, or to perform other more minor tasks. Whatever the case may be it is essential to work to high levels of safety, so each and every worker can go to work without fear of suffering injury.
The NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Health and Safety is a course that has been specifically designed to provide health and safety insight and advice to leaders in the construction industry. Managers and supervisors are among those who are responsible for managing sites and thus ensuring all health and safety requirements are met.
This national certificate provides a recognised qualification for all those who take and pass the course. It covers hazards, health and safety management and the application of rules concerning this issue.
Reducing the odds that accidents could happen
Anyone who has this type of qualification can ensure the potential for hazards or accidents to occur in specific places can be vastly reduced. However it is unlikely that the potential could be reduced to zero.
Despite the best efforts of those who are trained and qualified in this area, there may still be instances where negligence can lead to incidents or to the increased potential for an accident to occur. Understanding and reducing these occurrences is all part of making the construction industry a safer place in every respect.
