Construction Safety Passport
NZQA Unit Standard 497
The Construction Safety Passport course covers NZQA Unit Standard 497.
What is the Construction Safety Passport?
Employers must be aware of the rights and responsibilities of workers concerning health and safety. The unit standard covering this course will help you learn about safety awareness in the workplace, which is a key pillar of success for any business organisation.
At first glance, it may seem like the only thing that workers have to worry about is their paycheck. However, they also need to be worried about safety in the workplace if there is any chance of an accident happening or a hazard being present nearby and causing injury. Thankfully though, employees can get comprehensive training about workplace health and safety through courses such as the Construction Safety Passport.
With this, employers can cultivate a health and safety culture where everyone involved is conscious about the health, safety, and well-being of their colleagues.
