Since the 1st of July 2014 to apply for the New CSCS Green Labourer Card candidates need to do the New Level 1 Award in Health & Safety in a Construction Environment Course, as well as pass the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test to be able to apply for the Card.
Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment qualification is for anyone who currently works in construction or wants to work in construction, as well as for those already in the industry looking to refresh their knowledge. It is ideal for anyone wishing to apply for the Construction Skills Certificate Scheme (CSCS) Labourer Card (Green Card), necessary for work on a UK construction site.
The qualification assumes no prior knowledge and considers the fact that learners come from diverse education and employment backgrounds.
Having a valid CSCS card and passing the CITB test are both mandatory requirements of working in the construction industry because they grant employees access to UK construction sites as non-skilled workers.
What does it cover?
Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment qualification provides the learner with everything they need to know about maintaining and improving health and safety at work. It delivers essential knowledge about key terms, legal responsibilities and reasons for good health and safety on a construction site.The learner will also learn about personal protective equipment, emergencies, accident reporting, and dealing with ill-health within the construction environment.
