Generally, construction site protocols have placed the emphasis on safety rather than health and health promotion. While major world statistics show that most incidents occur due to falling from heights; being struck by objects; caught between objects and electrocution; the most chronic effects are health related. Such health issues include: muscle overuse syndrome, noise induced hearing lost, occupational asthma and occupational dermatitis.

This programme will equip participants with the tools to develop a sound health monitoring and promotional programme. It will access the routes of entry and the major organs ns affected by construction activity.



By the end of the programme, participants will have:

  • Knowledge of the principles of health promotion
  • Knowledge of the major illnesses affecting construction workers
  • Practised conducting health investigations for construction sites
  • Developed health promotion campaign



The session will take the format of a power point presentation, interactive team exercises, a question and answer session and practical exercises and simulation. The workshop will be held for 4 hours.
