CSCS Green Card Changes from 1 July 2014

From 1st July 2014 the green Construction Site Operative (CSO) card will no longer be issued. A new Labourers’ Green Card will replace the CSO card. There are now three qualifications which will be accepted in applying for the card: the Health and Safety in a Construction Environment Level 1 qualification, CIEH Level 2 Award in Health and Safety in the Workplace, or the Site Safety Plus Awareness course. Employees will also need to pass the CITB Operatives’ Health, Safety and Environment test within two years of applying for a new card. For more information visit the CSCS website
