The qualification assumes no prior knowledge and considers the fact that learners come from diverse education and employment backgrounds. The training is exceptionally easy to understand, and pass rates are high. An additional benefit of this British Safety Council Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment is that it’s a lifetime qualification. So, unlike the CITB Site Safety Plus courses, you will not have to re-sit this course every 5 years. This makes it the most economical course choice for getting your Green CSCS Card.
Having a valid CSCS card and passing the CITB Health, Safety and Environment test are both mandatory requirements of working in the construction industry because they grant employees access to UK construction sites as non-skilled workers.
The Labourer Card qualification was developed in partnership with the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB). Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment is regulated by the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF)
