REHIS Elementary Health and Safety Course – SCQF Level 5

£75.00

The REHIS Elementary Health & Safety Course is designed to create a better understanding of Health and Safety. The emphasis is on making the employee safe for him/herself, safe for others and capable of identifying potential hazards. ‘Health and Safety’ takes as its starting point the fact that most accidents are attributable to a lack of knowledge or carelessness and that the key to improvement is increased awareness on everybody’s part.

This course is recognised by CSCS as equivalent to the Level One Award Health and Safety in a Construction Environment. The REHIS Elementary Health and Safety certificate can be used to qualify for the CSCS Green Labourers Card.
