This qualification is designed for learners working in, or aspiring to work in, the construction industry. It will give learners the knowledge to undertake their jobs safely. Successful learners who also complete the CITB Operatives Health, Safety and Environment knowledge test will fulfil the requirements to apply for the CSCS Labourer’s card.

This qualification covers common hazards and risks in a construction environment, safe manual handling practices, working safely at height and working safely around plant and machinery. It also covers the importance of effective teamwork and communication in ensuring safe working practices are followed in the construction industry.


How long will it take me to achieve this qualification?

It is recommended that the qualification is delivered over a five day period with supporting homework in order to meet the guided learning hour value of 54.
