Applying for a Green CSCS Labourer Card
To apply for a CSCS Green Labourer Card delegates need to have attended and passed this course as well as passing the CITB Health and Safety and Environment touch screen test. These can be done in either order, but we recommend doing the training course first as this will act as revision for the touch screen test.
The CSCS green labourer card is used as proof that the person has passed the relevant training and shows that they should be able to demonstrate health and safety competence.
