Overview

Study Online and take the exam from Your Home or Your Office! Working in construction is not for everyone. It's a physically demanding job that involves heavy lifting, exposure to toxic materials, dangerous equipment and situations, extreme weather conditions, and more. While these are all valid reasons why construction workers may need special training or supervision, accidents happen that will inevitably affect you as a worker if you're not careful. Therefore, you should always complete your risk assessment before starting your new role.

Why do construction contractors require labours/workers to hold health and safety qualifications or CSCS green cards?

Construction companies require employees to have a green card so they can trust them to work safely on construction site. The CSCS green card allows organisations and construction managers to know that you come with a set of solid knowledge and experience when it comes to becoming a site operative. It will then ensure that the workers they hire are adequately managed when on-site and ensure that they will be safe. CSCS green cards also come down with inspections that ensure the company meets specific standards before being allowed onto sites and ensures no illegal immigrants are putting themselves at risk by working in unsafe conditions without proper protection.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
