      I believe you can take the CSCS health and safety test once you have passed you can then apply for a CSCS Card in your case an operatives card this can be endorsed by an employer or someone that you have done work for in the past i.e a colleague possibly a family member.

      Once you have your CSCS card you would be permitted onto site but probably at a basic level. if you approach a site which deals with the CSCS scheme speak to them and they will more than happy to advise you in the right direction.

    I already have a cscs card but it has trainee on it.I am no longer a trainee so could you tell me how i go about getting a new card

    • safetymatters
      February 13, 2010 at 9:05 am

      Corey, you can take the CSCS test at a level that meets your qualifications – you say you are a trainee i’m assuming thats for a relative construction activity trade therefore, you can take the operatives test if you have a city and guilds or an NVQ /SNVQ then you could obtain the supervsiors/Managers CSCS card but you’ll need to make that decision. I hope that helps and you can book your CSCS test here.

    • safetymatters
      May 27, 2010 at 4:38 pm


      As your CSCS card has expired you would need to take the supervisors CSCS test pass that and then apply for your CSCS Supervisors card, depending on your circumstances ie what qualifications you have you may need to enroll on an NVQ.

    Hi i have just passed my Health and Safety test, and just recieved the cscs card application form . They are asking for an employer to sign it and say i have at least 1 year site experience , trouble is i am unemployed and have been for sometime, i want the card to gain employment but now they are asking for this, i only want the green general operative card and was led to believe all i had to do to get it was pass the health and safety test. What am i supposed to do now? Oh, and other websites say u must have an nvq level 1 for the green card as well. Any help would be appreciated , thanks.

    Hi there, I can’t find any information about the Health and Safety Test and if it has a requal/renewal component to it. I hold a Blue CPCS/CSCS card which expires April 2014. My H&S test pass was awarded exactly a year beforehand. Do I need to renew it at all and if so after what period of time does it expire?
    Thanks, Steve B
