What is IOSH SHE for Construction Site Managers course?

The IOSH SHE for Construction Site Managers course provides training on how to manage every aspect of a construction site, but not with the aim of becoming specialist environmental or safety and health professional. Instead, participants will be taught the essential knowledge and techniques to ensure that all requirements are correctly implemented.

As an example, we do not intend to teach you how to write a COSHH assessment, but we will make sure you can understand it and implement it effectively. We understand your role and the crucial information you need to do your job effectively.
