Virtually everyone involved in a construction project has legal duties regarding health and safety. Specifically, those responsible for designing, constructing and operating buildings must manage, monitor and co-ordinate health and safety practice during the phases in which they work. Our course is designed to expand your knowledge of health and safety in construction and consider environmental perspectives linked to sustainability.


The Health, Safety and Environment course that we offer provides in-depth knowledge of legal duties, health and safety practices, and environmental considerations in construction. The course covers the legal framework, risk management, and preparation of management plans for safe working practices. Participants will learn to analyse legal issues surrounding health and safety, evaluate risk management systems, and create plans to ensure safe working conditions.

The course is delivered online with 90 days of access and includes case studies to support learning. By completing the course, participants will demonstrate a thorough understanding of the application of health and safety and environmental perspectives in the built environment.

Members gain 3 CIOB CPD points when you reflect on the ethical aspects of your learning from this activity.
