Health and Safety in a Construction Environment Level 4 & Level 5

Help keep your construction staff safe with this leading qualification.

Construction sites aren’t by nature the safest places in the world. But there’s no reason why with some training, they can’t be made as safe as they possibly can be.

The SQA SCQF Level 4 Award in Health and Safety within a Construction Environment has been developed for learners working in – or wanting to work in – the construction industry, and will give them the knowledge to undertake their role safely.

The qualification has also been designed so that learners who successfully complete it and go on to complete the CITB Operatives Health, Safety and Environment knowledge test will have fulfilled the knowledge needed to apply for the CSCS Labourer’s Card.

Theory booklet with practice questions are sent upon booking to allow for practice and understanding before course date.  Learners gain further theory within the classroom before sitting a touchscreen test at the end of the day.  Upon successful passing of this class, learner will gain the SCQF Level 4 in a Health and safety in a construction environment certificate from the SQA no later than 10 days after the course.  Learners can then book an operative test at their local Pearson test centre and will then be able to apply for their Green CSCS card that is valid for 5 years.

Manual Handling

SCQF Level 5

We are all exposed at times to some form of manual handling such as lifting, carrying, pulling and pushing actions that can be compounded by simultaneous movements such as climbing or pivoting.


Personal injuries resulting from incorrect manual handling in the workplace accounts for over one million working days lost per year, as well as the pain and suffering experienced by the casualties. Correct manual handling techniques can make a huge difference.

Syllabus A range of subjects are covered that will equip delegates to:

• Understand the reasons for safe manual handling
