Are you aware of the CSCS Green Card changes?

5001314_cscsgreencardThe old-style green Construction Site Operative card will be scrapped from 1st July 2014. Instead, a new style green Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card, valid for five years, will only be issued to those who are working in labouring occupations.

CSCS has implemented the changes to provide a scheme for the construction industry whereby employers can determine site workers’ actual training and qualifications from the colour of card they hold.

All applicants must pass the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test and either the Level 1 Award In Health & Safety in a Construction Environment qualification or the CITB Site Safety Plus Health & Safety Awareness course (Britannia is accredited to provide this course)
