CITB HS&E Revision Description

The CSCS Green Card Course is intended for students who are employed in or seeking employment in the construction industry. It will equip students with the knowledge they need to perform their jobs safely. Successful students who pass both the CSCS Labourer Card Course and the CITB Operatives Health, Safety, and Environment test are eligible to apply for a CSCS Green Card. The card aids employees and companies in proving employee compliance with health and safety requirements by showing that the holder has completed the necessary training.

You need the CSCS Green Card if you want to work on a construction site as a labourer (bricklayer, carpenter, plumber, etc.). The CSCS Green Labourers card proves that the labourer who holds the card knows the health and safety risks and hazards at a construction site. Although having a valid CSCS card is not legally required, many employers on construction sites insist that their staff members and subcontractors do.

This construction certification addresses typical risks and hazards in the construction industry, safe manual handling techniques, working safely at heights, and working safely with machinery and plants. It also discusses how crucial good collaboration and communication are to ensuring safe working procedures are followed in the construction sector.
