CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test for Operatives
The CITB Health, Safety and Environment (HS&E) test is an important way for construction workers to show that they can be safe on the job. It’s also a way for them to know that their fellow workers are as safe on the site and not put them at risk of injury. The Course is also relevant for anyone wishing to apply for a Construction Skills Certificate Scheme Card so they can work on UK construction sites.
Two Hour Test
The HS&E test is made up of 50 questions covering five core knowledge areas
- Regulations for working in confined spaces
- Legal and management
- Health and welfare
- General safety
- High risk activities
Candidates have 45 minutes to answer the 50 questions. The test now includes new question styles. Behavioural case studies are also used in the test to check a candidate’s understanding of health, safety and environmental issues, and how to behave safely on-site.
