To hold a Green CSCS Labourer Card, you must complete the CITB Health and Safety Awareness Training Course.
Completing the CITB Health and Safety Awareness Training Course includes passing the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test. This is also sometimes referred to as a CSCS test.
The CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test is part of the larger CITB Health and Safety Awareness Training Course.
At the end of the course, you’ll need to pass a multiple-choice question exam. The CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test is made up of 50 questions, which cover five core knowledge areas.
3 steps to get a CSCS Green Labour card
Step 1 - Complete this course for your Level-1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction environment.
Step 2 - Pass the CITB Health, Safety & Environment (HS&E) Operatives exam which is booked separately.

After completing the CITB Health and Safety Awareness Training Course, and successfully passing the multiple-choice exam, you will receive a certificate for a Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment.
Candidates that have passed will also be able to hold a Green Construction Skills Certificate Scheme (CSCS) Labourer Card.
Anyone working on a construction site needs to show that they have received training and qualifications to work safely on location.
A Green CSCS Labourer Card shows both employers and members of the public that you’ve undertaken the training you need to work in construction at a professional level.
A Green CSCS Labourer Card is an entry-level card that demonstrates you are able to work in manual labour jobs on construction sites. It also shows that you have effective health and safety knowledge that’s crucial to jobs like these.
A Green CSCS Labourer Card is a versatile qualification to have. It shows employers in a range of industries that you know the best practices for any kind of manual labour work, opening opportunities in building sites, demolition work, and infrastructure.
Your Green CSCS Labourer Card is valid for 5 years after you qualify for it. You can apply to renew it up to 6 months before the expiry date, which is often a good idea if you’re still working in the industry.
Because the Green CSCS Labourer Card is an entry-level qualification, people working in construction, demolition or infrastructure often plan to move to the next card up if they want to keep growing their careers.
CSCS Cards are colour-coded to show your level of seniority and experience in the industry – or to show potential employers that you have a specialised skill. Most people in this industry move from their Green CSCS Labourer Card to a red card next.
