What training do construction workers need?

At Kalu, we understand the importance of workplace training and that’s why we offer a range of Learning courses specifically designed for the construction sector. With years of experience in delivering online and face-to-face training courses, we know exactly what’s required to keep your staff safe and up-to-date with the latest health and safety regulations.

But don’t worry, we don’t expect you to know everything about workplace training! That’s why we offer a free consultation service to help you determine your specific training requirements. 

We’ll take into account factors such as what type of construction business you run, how many employees you have, and what specific health and safety risk your workforce might face.

We understand that figuring out your training requirements can be tricky, so we have put together this handy guide to Health and Safety training for the construction industry. 

This guide will take you through everything you need to know about health and safety training, from what is mandatory to how to choose the right courses for your business.

Step 1: Understanding a business

Before any courses are suggested, a risk assessment will need to be carried out for each job role in order to identify any risks that might occur within a group of employees.

Please note, it is a legal requirement for all businesses that employ 5 or more staff to conduct a written risk assessment.

What courses are mandatory?

It is important to highlight that in the construction industry, it is a requirement for all staff to take some form of basic Health & Safety training, but there are also many different courses staff can take depending on the role.

Manual Handling

Employees who are required to pull, lift, lower or push goods as part of their job are required to take manual handling training to help reduce the risk of injury and gain key skills to establish a safe working environment.

Risk Assessment and statements training

Risk assessment training allows employees to understand the safety and precautions required within a role and how it can benefit the company’s policies. 

First Aid at Work

This course aims to educate and give you the fundamental basics of first aid within the workplace. By learning and implementing the essential first aid techniques, you will be able to help injured employees and also use these transferable skills in everyday life.

Fire Safety

Understanding fire and how it can happen within the workplace is important to be aware of. It is important for the protection of not only the people working within the workplace but also your own safety. This fire training course will allow you to learn the fundamental basics on how to recognise the signs of a fire and how to manage and stop it.

There are many other courses that we offer here at Kalu, and we’d love to discuss your business with you to help you decide which training courses are right for your employees.

So if you’re looking for a hassle-free way to get your staff trained, Kalu is the perfect choice.
