CITB Exams Changes For 2019 – CITB Site Safety Plus Courses

Site Safety Plus exams will once again be changing.

The exam changes will come into force in January 2019. Take a look below at the headline changes to CITB exams.

CITB Health & Safety Awareness Changes

Exams ChangesIn the CITB Health & Safety Awareness, delegates used to be able to use their books on the final ten minutes of the exam. Now delegates can no longer use their books during the whole exam.

The HSA exam formerly contained three safety critical questions that placed sporadically throughout the exam. Safety-critical questions need to be answered correctly to pass the exam. Now the three safety critical questions will feature as the first three questions of the exam and will focus on key topics such as:

  • Working at heights
  • Asbestos awareness
  • Site transport safety

Exam papers and assessment criteria have also been reviewed and updated.

SSSTS Changes

The case study that features within the course content of the SSSTS course will be replaced. The case study will be replaced with three site drawings and associated tasks that can be used throughout the course.

The SSSTS exam formerly contained four safety critical questions that were scattered randomly throughout the exam. Safety-critical questions need to be answered correctly to pass the exam. Now the four safety critical questions will feature as the first four questions of the exam and will focus on key topics such as:

  • Working at heights
  • Asbestos awareness
  • Site transport safety
  • Respiratory hazards

The scheme of work and exam paper wording has been revised and updated.
