Summary
Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment qualification is for anyone who currently works in construction or wants to work in construction, as well as for those already in the industry looking to refresh their knowledge. It is ideal for anyone wishing to apply for the Construction Skills Certificate Scheme (CSCS) Labourer Card (Green Card), necessary for work on a UK construction site.

The qualification assumes no prior knowledge and considers the fact that learners come from diverse education and employment backgrounds. The training is exceptionally easy to understand and administer.

Having a valid CSCS card and passing the CITB test are both mandatory requirements of working in the construction industry because they grant employees access to UK construction sites as non-skilled workers.

The Labourer Card qualification was developed in partnership with the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB). Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment is regulated by the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF).
