Iosh announced today that their Working safely course has been recognised as an equivalent to a Level 1 Award in health and safety in a construction environment.

This means that delegates who successfully complete Working safely can apply for a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) green Labourer card once they have also passed the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Operative test.

Iosh have been working closely with CSCS over the past five months to achieve this recognition, bringing Working safely in line with their new national occupational standard. That’s because IOSH know it is important to so many of you who recognise Working safely as being world–class training.  The green card will allow easier access to construction sites across the UK which will be a great benefit to many of your clients and delegates.

We appreciate that this new development is likely to spark a number of questions and to help you IOSH have put together some frequently asked questions.

National Safety Training are currently offering this qualification fully funded to employers and their staff in Yorkshire. Thier is also a small amount of places available for those who are unemployed and in reciept of JSA living in Hull.

Contact us today on 01482 644855 to find out when the next course is running.

From 1st July 2014 the green Construction Site Operative (CSO) card will no longer be issued.  There will be a new green CSCS card available for people who are working in a labouring occupation.

Those wanting to apply for the new Green Construction Site Operative Card will be required to achieve a Level 1 Health and Safety in a Construction Environment qualification. This Health & Safety qualification is designed to improve safe working practices on construction sites around the UK. This includes both those who are new to the construction industry as well as those who are renewing their card.

What do I need to do?

The best way for those working in a labouring occupation to qualify for the new Green Labourer Card is to complete EAL’s new Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment.

National Safety Training Services are an accredited EAL training centre, already approved to deliver this Level 1 Health & Safety in a Construction Environment
