About the course

The construction sector is essential and an integral part of infrastructure development, boosting our country’s economy. Construction work includes building houses, roads, tree forts, workplaces and repairing & maintaining infrastructures. Construction work includes many hazardous tasks and conditions such as working at a height, at an excavation site, noise, dust, power tools, and equipment. The most common fatalities are caused by the fatal four: falls, being struck by an object, electrocutions, and being caught in between two things. Within the construction field, it is essential to have safe construction sites.
