Event Information

The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) has launched a short, interactive on-line course titled ‘An Introduction to Construction Safety for Small Contractors and the Self-Employed’. The course has been developed by the HSA with the support of the Construction Industry Federation (CIF), in order to provide relevant health and safety information to small construction contractors and to raise awareness of the importance of occupational safety, health and welfare in construction.

The 30-minute course is free and can be accessed through the Authority’s e-learning portal, http://hsalearning.ie.

The course is aimed at construction contractors: in particular small contractors and the self-employed.

It is also suitable for employers and employees working in the construction sector, key duty holders, or those employing small contractors to carry out work.

Learning outcomes:
On successful completion of this course learners should be able to:

  • identify key duties under health and safety legislation,
  • recognise key hazards and risks in construction,
  • understand the consequences of unsafe work practices, and
  • source relevant information on construction health and safety, including the Safety Statement.
