CSCS Green Labourer Card - How to obtain one

The CSCS Labourer Card is an important first step in your career as a construction worker. Owning a CSCS Green Card will enable you to apply for labourer jobs on a range of construction sites within the UK. This is an entry-level card that will give you access to a variety of roles. This including bricklaying, tiling, plumbing, electrics or carpentry in a supervised capacity with a qualified worker. How do I apply for the CSCS Labourer card?

  1. Book in a CITB Health, Safety and Environment Operatives test at your local test centre.

  2. Once you have passed this test, you must complete a relevant qualification - the CITB Health and Safety Awareness course is the most recognised qualification which is recognised towards attaining the learner Green Labourer Card

  3. Once both of these have been completed you can then apply for your CSCS Green Card.

Please note: you will need a copy of both the Health, Safety & Awareness certificate and the CITB Health, Safety & Environment score report to complete your CSCS Green Card application. Once you have completed this process and obtained your CSCS Green Card you will be eligible to work on construction sites in the UK. Your CSCS Green Card is valid for 5 years. CITB Heath and Safety Awareness Course This course highlights potential hazards when working on site and provides practical advice on keeping yourself and your colleagues safe. It covers your individual and employer’s responsibilities, including what you can do if you think anyone’s health and safety is being put at risk.
