CSCS Cards & Testing

CITP Ltd is an accredited CITB Health, Safety and Environment 'Touch-Screen-Test' centre. If you wish to apply for, or renew a CSCS card, booking and passing the HS&E test is the first step you will need to take.

The ultimate aim of this test is to examine a candidates' knowledge of a broad range of key aspects of health and safety, which will in turn improve safety and general productivity on construction sites in the UK. To obtain a trade-specific CSCS card, be it a Green Labourer, Blue Skilled Worker, Gold Supervisor or Black Manager card, candidates must also demonstrate their occupational competence by completing the relevant NVQ.

This official certification scheme applies to all Site Operatives, Supervisors and Managers as well as plant operatives. Whatever professional position you or your employees are in, the CSCS card is essential.

Health and Safety is key to any organisation and it is imperative that everyone understands the health and safety procedures during specific events. Our role is to provide just that. We ensure all participants in our construction training courses get the necessary information so they are safe at the workplace. This isn't only to keep the participants safe; they are also able to ensure that the workplace is safe for others.

To find our more about how to work towards a CSCS card, then call us today on 01189 700200, or get in touch with us through our contact page.

Improve your on site working with a CSCS card

CSCS’ role is to provide a scheme for the construction industry that confirms site workers’ training and qualifications. Many site workers who are carrying out skilled occupations have been applying for the green CSO card as the easiest route to gain access to construction sites.

This makes it difficult for contractors to use CSCS cards as a reliable method of checking that site workers have the appropriate skills to work on construction sites safely and effectively.

If you have a green CSO card that expires after 1st July 2014, you will need to provide evidence that you have achieved one of the following:

  • QCF/SCQF Level 1 Award Health and Safety in a Construction Environment*


  • One day Site Safety Plus Health and Safety Awareness Course

We also include the CITB HS&E Operatives test and apply for the Green CSCS 'Labourer' card upon completion, making us one of the most competitively priced centres in the UK.

Bookings can be made via or by calling 01189 700200.

The CITB Health, safety & environment (HS&E) test helps to raise standards across the industry and ensures workers have a minimum level of health, safety and environmental awareness before going on site.

The HS&E test should be used as a stepping stone for employers and their workforce to develop their knowledge even further, while earning their CSCS card.

The HS&E test

All tests last for 45 minutes and have 50 multiple-choice questions including:

  • 12 behavioural case study questions about how you should behave on a construction site to stay safe.
  • 38 knowledge questions to check your awareness of health, safety and environment issues:

Different tests have been developed to meet the demands of different trades and professions. You will need to make sure that you take and prepare for the right one.

If you are taking the CITB Health, safety and environment test to gain a card for access to construction sites please ensure you have checked the scheme requirements to apply for a card to ensure you are booking the correct level of test. Please click here for information on different card schemes available.
