CSCS Green Labourer’s Card – Health Safety and Environment Test

The CSCS green Labourer’s card is perfect for anyone currently working or who wants to work in construction, as well as those already in the industry looking to refresh their qualifications. The Green Labourer’s Card is a requirement of working on a UK building site.

Having a valid CSCS card and passing the CITB test are both mandatory requirements for working in the construction industry because they grant employees access to UK construction sites as non-skilled workers.

Entry Requirements

The only requirement is that candidates already hold Health & Safety in Construction qualification before taking the CSCS Health, Safety & Environment test. They cannot obtain their CSCS card until proof of certification is on file with CITB. We appreciate that learners will come from diverse education and employment backgrounds.

Course Progression

Most candidates will progress directly to employment in the construction industry. They could also progress to NVQ qualifications in specialist areas such as carpentry/joinery, bricklaying, plumbing as well as many other roles in the construction sector.
