This course is now required when applying to obtain a Green Card (Labourer Card). The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) has now made changes (as of July 2014), for obtaining a Green Card. These new requirements state, that along with the CITB Health, Safety and Environment (HS&E) Test, a qualification (or alternative) MUST be achieved in order to apply for the Green Card.
This course can be for those who have entered or are about to enter, the construction and civil engineering industry. It highlights potential hazards when working on site and provides practical advice on keeping yourself and your colleagues safe. The course gives the delegates an awareness of health and safety and how it affects their daily role. It covers your individual and employer’s responsibilities, including what you can do if you think anyone’s health and safety is being put at risk. Instruction Method:
This course is classroom based learning, but does have some practical elements built in for the delegates. Topics:
This course is the first step in the progressive CITB Site Safety Plus suite of courses that range from training for operatives into the industry up to senior manager/ director. It is a highly interactive course delivered by means of case studies, classroom discussion, group work and individual/ group presentations. Candidates will be assessed through the course and have to successfully complete a multiple-choice test.
It is supported by the Safe Start (GE707) publication, and on completion of the days training there will be an examination.
