This course has been designed to provide training for construction site supervisors, so they can better recognise and control the health risks specific to their workplace, by:

  • Identifying the most commonly present health hazards found on construction sites
  • Understanding the principals of risk control
  • Identifying the measures needed to control common health risks from construction activities


The primary aim of the course is to provide the students with an awareness of the potential health hazards on a construction site, the tasks that produce them and the subsequent ill health effects that they can cause. The course specifically focuses on ways to control these health hazards in order to protect worker health.

  • Site Supervisors
  • Site Managers

It may also be suitable for people who wish to progress into these job roles.


  • Health risks on construction sites
  • Risk assessments
  • Chemical hazards
  • Physical hazards
  • Ergonomic hazards
  • Principles of control
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

This is a 1-day course plus a two hour online pre-reading module prior to commencement of the course. 


Students must pass a short multiple choice examination taken at the end of the course.


Attendees who successfully complete the course will be issued a certificate from BOHS.

This course is an accredited course by the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS).

This course is set at level 2, comparable to the NEBOSH Health and Safety at Work Qualification.


Price is £195.00 + VAT per person plus BOHS exam fees of £100.00. This is an open (public) course and may be subject to minimum numbers attending.
