Health and Safety in a Construction Environment - Level 1 Award

This qualification is aimed at learners who currently work, or want to work, in construction and successful completion will enable you to move on to take the CITB health, safety and environment test, and then apply for the new Construction Skills Certificate Scheme (CSCS) Green Card. This card allows access to construction sites in the UK as a non-skilled worker.
From the 1st July 2014, as a mandatory part of the application for a CSCS Green Card, you must be able to provide a relevant certificate that provides evidence of your knowledge and understanding of health and safety in a construction environment. This includes those looking to enter the construction industry as well as those renewing their CSCS card. This qualification is acknowledged as one of the best ways of providing this evidence.
