Course Details

The CITB Health, safety and environment test helps raise standards across the industry. It ensures that workers meet a minimum level of health, safety and environmental awareness before going on site.
The operative test last for 45 minutes and has 50 questions. The test is made up of behavioral case studies and knowledge questions.

For anyone wishing to obtain their CSCS Card, the HSE Operatives (CSCS) test is a mandatory requirement. They typically only last for two years before you need to retake it. So, if you took the test a while back and are looking to apply for your CSCS card, then you may need to re-take the test. It is also imperative that you keep your Test Certificate safe, as you'll need to provide a copy of this when applying for your CSCS Card.

More and more construction sites are requiring operatives to have an appropriate CSCS Card or certification. These are slowly becoming a mandatory requirement for all operatives working on medium to large sites. As a minimum, the CSCS HS&E Test will allow you to apply for a 6-month temporary card.

If you'd like to extend the duration of your card to 5-years, you'll need a Level 1 Health and Safety Course, or relevant NVQ.
