IOSH Gets Construction Recognition
IOSH Working safely course gets construction industry recognition
IOSH are delighted to announce that their Working safely course has been recognised as an equivalent to a Level 1 Award in health and safety in a construction environment.
This means that delegates who successfully complete Working safely can apply for a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) green Labourer card once they have also passed the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Operative test.
IOSH & CSCS Card
IOSH have been working closely with CSCS over the past five months to achieve this recognition, bringing Working Safely in line with their new national occupational standard. The green card will allow easier access to construction sites across the UK which will be a great benefit to many of our clients and delegates.
I would like to know hw I get started with the iosh to learn more and get a job in the field.

Safety, health and environment for construction site managers course . What level of job can this qualification get me ?
How much does it cost to do ?
The level of job is highly depending on your experience, as well as, which construction course you have (level 3, 4, 5, 6, etc.). Should you do the NEBOSH level 3 construction, this would be usually sufficient for a health and safety officer, up to the site manager or site safaty manager. Costs are that of the eLearning course, plus the associated examination(s) and possible local sitting fee.
I am a graduate holding a diploma in safety management and would like to know, what further courses should i take to improve my chances of being employed because I don’t have any experience.
The best things to do are to look at specialised certificates. If you are wanting a job in a certain sector then it can pay off to have a qualification in the specialised subject. You can do this with a range of NEBOSH Certificates.
You could also look at trying to get some experience behind you, if you haven’t had a job in health and safety, you are at a disadvantage to someone who is more experienced. You can look at work shadowing, applying for temporary placements or seeing if a company needs an on-call advisor for sick leave cover. Speaking to friends in other companies may be a great way to link an employer to you and your skills.
Regardless, don’t give up on applying for jobs. Remember that everyone starts somewhere in all industries and job roles.
