What is the Green CSCS Labourer Card?

The CSCS Green Labourer Card allows individuals to work on construction sites in entry-level positions. It is issued as part of the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) and is valid for 5 years.

The CSCS Labourer Card shows employers that you have acquired the necessary health and safety knowledge through training courses and are aware of best practices on a construction site. The work of a labourer tends to be more physical in nature and doesn't require advanced skills.

 

 

 

 

Do I need a CSCS Labourer Card?

A CSCS Card is required by many employers for compliance purposes, but it is not a legal requirement. Nevertheless, we strongly recommend it if you wish to work in the construction industry as a labourer, since most building sites require a valid CSCS Labourer Card. 

Eligibility

To be eligible for a Green CSCS Labourer card, you need to be at least 16 years old and have attended the Green CSCS Labourer Card Health and Safety Awareness Training Course.

Green CSCS Labourer Card Health and Safety Awareness Training Course

The Green CSCS Labourer Card Health and Safety Awareness Training Course is the first step in getting your CSCS Green Card.

The course is a simple introduction to safety on a construction site. By the end of the course, you should be able to spot hazards and play your part in making the work environment safer for you and your colleagues. The modules covered include:

  • Health and Safety Act 
  • Preventing accidents
  • Risk assessments and safety checks
  • Reporting accidents and unsafe acts

The course is run over 1-day and is assessed by a multiple choice exam at the end, as well as your overall class participation. You will need your certificate as part of your application for your CSCS Green Labourer Card.
