Construction Industry Training Courses in Uxbridge
Harrington Safety provide a variety of health and safety courses in Uxbridge that cater to a wide range of areas and disciplines required on a construction site. Health and safety on site is the responsibility of everyone from the apprentice to the site manager to create a safe environment for everyone, and the ability to spot potential hazards and risks and prevent accidents happening on site as well as how to react when they do happen.
As an independent training provider, we provide flexible training courses with many half day courses, weekend courses and online virtual classrooms for CITB courses, that can be mixed and matched to create a training day relevant to your company. We can provide training for one employee or an entire workforce – as well as providing training on site to reduce disruption to your business.
All of our courses are run by experienced industry professionals who have many years of experience on site so have an understanding of the challenges construction workers face. Our courses are fully interactive, and many use a mix of case studies, classroom discussions and group work to provide the information in an easy to digest format.
Our training courses in Uxbridge cover multiple disciplines including general health and safety, first aid, working at height, SMSTS, SSSTS, CITB and Face Fit Testing. We have courses available for entry level workers to site managers and directors. All of them are recognised by the relevant governing bodies in each area. Upon completion, you will receive a certification that lasts five years. We also provide the HSA course that forms part of your CSCS green card qualification, along with the environmental touch screen test as part of the Construction Skills Certification Scheme. The scheme aims to increase safety on construction sites, and to ensure that those working in the construction industry are doing so with the very best health and safety knowledge.
Health and Safety Training
Our general health and safety training in Uxbridge consist of a range of half day courses that you can mix and match to create a tailored training day for your employee or work force. These courses cover abrasive wheels, manual handling, Cat and Genny and asbestos awareness. We also provide a healthy and safety training course on petrol driven cut off saws, which will provide delegates with the necessary skills and knowledge to safely operate petrol driven cut off saws. Accidents associated with the use of this equipment are becoming more common, and so this course will help to raise industry standards and minimise future injuries.
Our abrasive wheels training covers the selection and fitting of abrasive wheels in compliance with the manufacturer’s instructions as well as current legislation. We cover the different types of wheels and discs and the different functions of each.
Manual handling covers the safe handling and carrying of objects to reduce the risk of personal injury. While Cat and Genny training will provide workers with how to locate underground services in compliance with HSG47, and the procedures they should follow to avoid risks and injury. Finally asbestos awareness will educate attendees on the health risks of asbestos and how to handle it in a safe and responsible way.
These Uxbridge health and safety training courses are aimed at providing understanding of potential risks on site and how to avoid them.
First Aid Training Courses
First aid is an essential skill for anyone, but it is particularly important on a construction site where there is the opportunity for accidents and injuries everywhere. Obviously, our health and safety training is designed to try and offset the chance of these happening, but it is important to know how to react when accidents do happen.
Our first aid training courses in Uxbridge are aimed at providing the practical skills and confidence to deal with emergencies and accidents to provide the best first aid before the arrival of the paramedics or the patient can get to the hospital.
Our range of first aid courses in Uxbridge cover emergency first aid, first aid at work and mental health first aid – which aims to provide mental health support and signposting to those experiencing mental health crisis – an increasing issue for workers in the construction industry.
Our CITB courses in Uxbridge provide essential health and safety training for those working in the construction industry. The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) have developed this training to provide an understanding of potential hazards on site and an understanding of the legislation around health and safety on site.
We can also provide online CITB training which are exactly the same as our classroom training and provided over Zoom. The trainer will be online live on video along with the fellow delegates who can still interact, take part in discussions, quizzes and activities as you would with our classroom-based training. You will be sent a link to join the online learning course and will need to be able to access the internet with a webcam and microphone.
Exams still take place as usual, which you complete online, invigilated by the trainer via the webcam so you will still receive a valid certification.
Our Uxbridge CITB courses include the Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) which is aimed at providing health and safety understanding for anyone who oversees other workers on site such as site managers and supervisors. This course is five days and is fully interactive with a mix of case studies, class discussions and group work.
As part of our Uxbridge SMSTS courses, you will also have to complete some self-study outside of the course to gain the full knowledge required. Upon completion you will receive the CITB Site Safety Plus certificate which is valid for five years and recognised by BUILDUK.
Our SSSTS course runs for two days and is aimed at site supervisors. SSSTS stands for Site Supervisor’ Safety Training Scheme and teaches legal responsibilities site supervisors have regarding health, safety, welfare and environmental issues.
The course consists of classroom discussion group work and individual or group presentations. Continuous assessments are taken throughout the course and there will be a multiple-choice test at the end to evaluate your knowledge. We also recommend some self-study outside of the course.
Upon competition, you will receive a CITB Site Safety Plus certificate which is valid for five years and recognised by BUILDUK.
CSCS Green Card Certification
Our CSCS green card certification is a one day HSA course that forms one half of your requirements for obtaining a card and is considered the standard training for all operatives on site. Many responsible construction companies will not allow a worker on site until they have completed this certification. Once completed, it is then valid for five years.
Work at Height Courses
Working at height understandably has its risks, which is why it is one of the biggest causes of fatal and serious injuries on site, making it important that anyone working at height is fully trained to operate safely and in compliance with health and safety law.
Our working at height training courses in Uxbridge consist of a selection of half day courses that you can mix and match to create a tailored training day. We are able to run this training on site where the required facilities exist and cover areas such as harness use and inspection, steps, ladders, harness and leading edge and working at height awareness.
The work at height courses in Uxbridge provide the necessary training to work safely at height and each certification is valid for five years. They will provide your workforce with the understanding of how to follow procedure on site and working safely as well as spotting hazards.
Face Fit Testing
Our Face Fit Test is aimed at ensuring that those who need to wear respiratory protection equipment (RPE) are wearing the right mask and fit for them to prevent leaks and exposure to harmful fumes. It is a legal requirement that people wearing a tight-fitting mask need to be face fit tested to ensure a complete seal.
As part of the Face Fit Test in Uxbridge, delegates will take a taste test to ensure they can taste the solution and the test is accurate. They will then take the fit test which involves completing a series of exercises to ensure the mask does not move which need to be done until the solution cannot be tasted at all.
It is highly recommended and advised that Face fit testing should be completed every two years and it is advisable that the wearer does not have facial hair as this can compromise the fit of the mask and allow leaks.
Delegates will be also be instructed on how to conduct face fit testing and an understanding of the different masks available. It is also advised that this test and certification should be renewed every two years.
