CSCS Green Card - 1 Day Course Online - Target Audience

The course is designed for people who work in, or want to work in, the construction industry. Construction sites can be dangerous places and this course helps to keep construction workers safe by providing training on the key health and safety topics required.

Take the first step towards a CSCS green card with this RQF Level 1 online course. Hosted by Highfield, the Health and Safety in a Construction Environment Level 1 qualification has no expiry date and will prepare you for work in the UK construction industry. 

Successful completion of the course will place learners in a strong position to move on and take the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test for Operatives. The second step in how to get a CSCS Green Card.

A CSCS Labourer Card (also known as a CSCS Green Card) is required to access most construction sites in the UK. The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) helps workers prove to employers that they know how to undertake their role safely.

Successful candidates will receive a Highfield Certificate.

This course certificate has no expiry and is a lifetime qualification. The HSE recommends refresher training is carried out whenever it is felt necessary.

We would recommend refreshing knowledge as and when legislation or guidance changes applicable to these regulations.
