Information on the CSCS Labourer Green Card
Posted: 11th December 2015
The latest Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) Green Card for those working in labouring occupations in construction demands that all workers wishing to gain their card must do the following:
- Attend a Site Safety Plus - Health & Safety Awareness Course (1 Day) or an IOSH Working Safely Course (1 Day) and;
- Pass the CITB Health, Safety and Environmental Test for operatives (Touch Screen)
All CITB HS&E tests include 12 behavioural case study questions which are designed to test how you respond to health and safety scenarios on construction sites. The questions are based on the principles that are established in the CITB 'Setting Out' film, which those wishing to attend the touch screen test are advised to watch before you take your test.
'Setting Out' details the safety measures and controls that operatives can expect employers to take on their behalf and offers tips on how operatives can promote a safer working site environment. To watch 'Setting Out', click on the film link below:
