NPORS S001: Construction Safety Awareness Course

Who Should Attend?
The NPORS Construction Safety Awareness Course has been mapped as a full equivalent to the QCF Level 1 Award Health and Safety in a Construction Environment. This means that it’s a requirement for those looking to get the Green Labourers CSCS Card.

This course highlights potential hazards when working on site and provides practical advice on keeping yourself and your colleagues safe. It covers your individual and employer’s responsibilities, including what you can do if you think anyone’s health and safety is being put at risk. Our course involves a group PowerPoint presentation being delivered by our Senior Trainer, with class topics and discussions throughout.
Once completed, we then deliver CITB Mock Tests and CITB HS&E Tests for those who are looking to get their CSCS Card.

We offer a free re-test to anyone that doesn’t pass first time!

Other Information
Certification for this course is valid for 5 years. To remain certified in this area, you will need to retake the course before the expiry date.

Course duration: 1 day

Getting the Green Labourer’s CSCS Card
