What course do I need to get a CSCS Labourer Card?

The Construction Skills Certification Scheme(CSCS) Labourer card is for those wanting to access entry-level jobs within the construction industry.  The CSCS Labourer card is designed to increase safety on construction sites.  Having a card contributes towards the overall health & safety, and standard of a construction site.  The green CSCS card provides evidence to employers that the required qualification has been taken and that the necessary health & safety awareness and knowledge is understood.  

To apply for the green CSCS Labourer card, relevant qualifications need to have been passed.  There are two popular routes to choose from.  Firstly, one of the approved CSCS qualifications is the one day CITB Health and Safety Awareness training course.  The course is mainly focused on the construction and civil engineering industries.  It is also endorsed by Build UK and the certification for the CITB Health and Safety Awareness course is valid for 5 years.  Secondly, you could take the one day IOSH Safety, Health and Environment for Construction Workers training course.  This too is acknowledged by the Build UK trading standards.  After passing the relevant qualification of your choice, the CITB Health, Safety & Environment Touch-Screen test is the next step.

The CITB Health and Safety Awareness training tends to be the most popular route.  It offers an ideal foundation for career development to progress onto supervisory responsibilities (SSSTS) and then advancing onto management responsibilities (SMSTS)
