IOSH are delighted to announce 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’s 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 clients and delegates.
