What is the Health, Safety & Environment Test?

The Health, Safety & Environment Test (also known as the CSCS Test) is a check of your basic knowledge of safety measures that must be taken while working on site. There are several tests available covering different occupations and the different rules that must be taken into account while working with certain equipment or on certain work areas.

We offer official CSCS Revision Material including mock test DVDs and revision books to help you pass the test.

We highly recommend that you make use of the practise material that we offer to make sure that you pass, especially if you are taking the test for the first time.

What documents do you need to bring to the test?

When you arrive at your testing centre, you will be expected to bring certain documents along. Please ensure that you bring a Proof of Identity with your picture and signature. This can be a new style UK driving license (with photo) or a passport.

Please make sure that your documents are valid and up-to-date for this.If you are intending to bring another form of Identification, please check with us first; you may need to bring additional forms of ID in this case.

There are more than 150 accredited Test Centres throughout the UK. When using the booking form you can find the test centre nearest and most convenient to you.

How long does the test last?

The Health & Safety test will only take 45 minutes to complete and will include 50 multiple choice questions. When you pass the test, you will be given your certificate at the testing centre, which will be valid for 2 years to apply for a CSCS card. Upon a successful CSCS card application your test validity is extended until the expiry of your CSCS card (usually 5 years).

What do I do after passing the test?

We can also help you apply for your CSCS Card. Once you receive your CSCS card, your Health, Safety and Environment Test will be valid for as long as you keep the same CSCS Card renewed. You will likely be required to pass the Health, Safety and Environment Test again if you decide to apply for another kind of CSCS card (after more than two years).
