The QCF Level 1 Health and Safety in Construction Environment course teaches you about:
- Fundamentals of health and safety and risk assessment on construction sites
- Safe manual handling on site
- Working safely at height on site
- Health and safety risks on site
- On-site working practices and equipment safety
Why do you need a CSCS Card?
The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) was introduced to the UK’s construction industry to ensure that labourers working on construction sites had the required understanding and training in health and safety. Contractors and construction companies therefore demand that construction workers hold a CSCS card. Without it, workers may be rejected onto a site.
How do you get a CSCS Card?
You must pass this one day course as well as the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test. You can do this in any order and we can also arrange your CITB test and send separate revision. You need to pass this QCF Level 1 course as well as the test to get the CSCS Green Card.
What happens after the exam?
You will get the results on the SAME DAY by email and if you pass this course, we will send you a PDF of your Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment certificate within 1-5 working days.
You simply forward that email to CITB to prove you so that you can arrange your CSCS card application. (They will check to see if you have passed the CITB Health and Safety test in the last two years – the other requirement).
