As a trainer it is most important that I have the current knowledge of all legislation, regulatory requirement and code of practices, relating to Construction work activity and health and safety.
Health and Safety is the key piece of legalisation for my area. The Health and Safety at Work Act (1974). This Act provides a framework for ensuring the health and safety of all employees in any work activity. It also provides for the health and safety of anyone who may be affected by work activities for example employees, visitors to work sites, including members of the public and other contractors.

I agree with the Tomlinson Report 1996, ‘A good education system is not merely about offering access to what is available, but also the making of what needs to be available accessible: the moulding of opportunity’. (www.tandfonline.com).

No learners would be excluded for any reason, I would respect any needs of the learner, and offer my full support. (If you’re discriminated against for any reason under the act, the law could help you)

To establish and maintain a safe and supportive learning environment I would always adhere to the Health and Safety Act 1974, and make sure there were no potential hazards, I would ensure the area for the training session has had a risk assessment and all potential hazards have been controlled, in addition to this I would carry out a visual risk assessment before, during and after each session. All learners would help with this process and would be made aware of this with the learning agreement. The room layout would also be significant on learning. There must be sufficient space around each working area, so the learner can move around with ease and feel comfortable within their learning
