This 1-day course will provide candidates with an introduction to environmental issues on construction sites. It is designed to meet the basic environmental knowledge that the sub-contract chain are required to prove to major contractors, and covers the environmental aspects of the new touch screen Health, safety and environment test.

This course is delivered through classroom based tutorials and case studies. Candidates will understand how each issue affects work on construction sites and focus on best practice techniques and legal compliance. Each session ends with key ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ and details of further information. Candidates receive a copy of the new GE 700 Environmental section for further reference on site. At the end of the course, knowledge is tested by a 25 question multiple-choice test.
