Take the first step in applying for a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card with the IOSH Working Safely course.
IOSH Working Safely is an alternative to a CITB Health and Safety awareness course. This course is ideal to complete before the CITB Health, Safety and Environment test. On completion of both elements, candidates can apply for a CSCS green labourers’ card.
Alternatively, this course is ideal introductory health and safety course suitable for all employees.
Over the course, candidates will learn a variety of topics including identifying risks and hazards, the importance of working safely and protecting the environment.
The full course content is:
- The importance of working safely
- Employers and employee responsibilities
- Defining hazards and risk
- Identifying hazards and risks
- Enhancing health and safety in the workplace
- The environmental effects of business
- Reducing the effects of industry on the environment
Assessment and Certification
Candidates will be given a workbook to assist them throughout the day. At the end of the course, candidates will undertake a multiple-choice exam paper alongside a hazard spotting exercise. This tests their understanding of the course content.
Successful candidates will receive their certificate and wallet card, accredited through IOSH, shortly after the training day.
There is no set expiry date for the qualification, however we recommend that candidates retake the course every 3 years to refresh their understanding.
