Subject & Learning Outcomes

This Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a construction environment (QCF) provides a practical summary of health, safety, welfare and environment issues identifying individual responsibilities for looking after yourself and others, what the employer’s duties are and what should be done if they think anyone’s health and safety is being put at risk. This qualification is aimed at learners who currently work, or want to work in construction, who need a CSCS Labourers Green card.

Training / Assessment and Testing

All assessment is via a 40 question multiple choice examination (paper-based) lasting one hour.
* Learners will also need to pass the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test to get the Green card.
