Pathway to a CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) Green Labourers’ card

Our Level 1 course in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment will help construction workers show that they can be safe on the job and can then go on to apply for the CSCS Labourer’s card.

Level 1 Health and Safety in a Construction Environment

Supported by CITB (Construction Industry Training Board) this qualification teaches the principles of risk assessment for maintaining and improving health and safety at work; the importance of safe manual handling and working safely at height in the workplace; the risks to health within a construction environment and the importance of working safely around a plant and equipment. This course is 2 days of 6 hours.

Then you will be supported to book into a test centre in Canterbury, Gravesend, Chatham or Tunbridge Wells to take the CITB operatives Health, Safety and Environment Knowledge Test. www.citb.co.uk/courses-and-qualifications/hse-test-and-cards/book-a-test/. This test is an important way for construction workers to show that they can be safe on the job. It’s also a way for them to know that their fellow workers are safe on the site and not put them at risk of injury.

Lastly, successful learners who complete both the Level 1 course and the knowledge test can apply for the CSCS Labourer’s card online www.cscs.uk.com/applying-for-cards/
