IOSH Safety, Health and Environment for Construction Site Managers

Managing safety & health in construction

There are few work environments more challenging than a construction site. Our superb course equips construction site managers to meet their responsibilities and to recognise the opportunities that a clear focus on safety, health and the environment
can deliver.

The course will meet the needs of your business within a timescale to suit you. This flexible course will demonstrate how a focus on effective safety and health management will improve efficiency and the wellbeing of your staff.

Delegates will learn how to manage every aspect of the site, but not with the aim of becoming specialist environmental or safety and health professionals themselves. Instead they will be taught the techniques to ensure that all requirements are correctly implemented. As an example, we do not intend to teach you how to write a COSHH assessment, but we will make sure you can understand it and implement it effectively.

We understand your role and the crucial information you need to do your job effectively.

Who is the course suitable for?

Anyone who oversees or manages safety, health and environmental risks associated with construction activities.

Course Duration

Our classroom based course will take place over 4 days.


The course consists of four modules:

  • Understanding the background
  • Preparing for work
  • Setting up the site
  • Construction phase health and safety

Learning outcomes

  • Delegates will benefit from a clear overview of the specific safety, health and environmental requirements of managing a construction site, including:
  • local law and enforcement preparing for work
    general management of the site, workers and contractors including for example:
    • the importance of method statements
    • the use of permits to work
  • the importance of managing environmental aspects and impacts related to construction projects
  • principles underpinning the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015
  • the key issues and control of working at height including for example:
    • plans and risk assessments
    • roofs and fragile surfaces
    • working platforms and ladders
    • management, use and stability of scaffolds

To complete the course successfully, learners will be required to sit, and pass, an assessment paper consisting of 25 multi-format questions with a pass mark of 21 out of 25.
