Obtaining a CSCS green card is a means of screening both new hires and visitors to make sure they won’t endanger the security of site workers. This card serves as a means of identifying workers who are fully qualified on construction and building sites. One needs to pass the CITB Health, Safety, and Environment touchscreen test to receive a CSCS Green Laborer Card. The card has a £36 application charge.
You need to meet specific requirements and be at least 16 years old in order to apply for a green CSCS Labourer Card. The qualifications for a CSCS green card are as follows:
1. An RQF Level 1/SCQF Level 4 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment. (This is a lifetime qualification)
2. An SCQF Level 5 REHIS Elementary Health and Safety Certificate.
3. The NOCN/CSkills Awards Construction Health & Safety (F/618/0738) unit.
4. A CSCS-approved alternative qualification, enumerated as follows:
f) JTJ Introduction to Construction Course
j) Principles of Construction Site Health
k) Rushmoor Borough Council Health and Safety in a Construction Environment L1
You might be wondering how to apply for the CSCS after taking the HS&E test. The HS&E test costs £22.50 when scheduled directly with the CITB. In addition to the HS&E test, the CSCS Card itself costs £36 and can be purchased over the phone.
