Our Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment (RQF) is ideal for people who work in, or want to work in, a construction environment. It has been specifically designed to provide successful candidates with a route to applying for the Green Labourer CSCS Card.

Supported by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), this regulated and nationally recognised qualification has been developed to provide a basic awareness of health and safety within construction.

Successful candidates will gain an understanding of the risks of working in a construction environment, principles of risk assessments for improving health and safety at work, the importance of working safely at height and much more.

COVID-19 Update

We are pleased to announce we reopened GEM Safety on Monday 1st June 2020 following our temporary closure due to the government restrictions that had been put in place. Our CSCS test centre is now available for bookings and our public training courses are starting from Wednesday 10th June 2020 onwards, all taking place at our COVID secure Halifax centre.

We want to reassure all delegates of our public courses, before attending, that we are taking extra steps to ensure the protection of yourself and others to maintain high standards concerning hygiene through this time. The health and well-being of our delegates and dedicated team will be a priority, which is why our upcoming public courses will be run in a COVID-19 secure venue with hand sanitisation stations, reduced attendee numbers and social distancing measures in place. We want to reassure all delegates before attending, that we are taking extra steps to ensure the protection of attendees on our courses to maintain high standards concerning hygiene through this time. We have always maintained the highest standards of cleanliness with all our training equipment and venues, but in addition to our usual hygiene processes, we are now limiting CSCS tests to 4 delegates per 1 hour slot. This is to ensure social distance between each delegate completing the tests. All computer equipment is disinfected after use and hand sanitisers are readily available at GEM Safety Ltd. We also recommend that attendees follow the Public Health England guidance when attending our courses which is included in our events listings. We look forward to seeing you on our upcoming Safety courses and CSCS tests!
