What are the health & safety training test requirements?

Applicants applying for a LISS/CSCS SmartCard must:

  • attend and pass a LISS/CSCS recognised ROLO Health, Safety & Environmental Awareness Course
  • pass the CITB Health Safety and Environment Touch Screen Test at the appropriate level for the SmartCard being applied for. Note: On initial application, the LISS/CSCS committee has ruled that due to the CSCS hologram not being displayed when applicants have NOT completed the CITB Health Safety and Environment Touch Screen Test, (as their NVQ/Diploma was initially accepted in its place) all applicants must complete this test. For information on booking the test contact CITB on 0344 994 4488 or click here.

The relevant health & safety requirements above must be successfully completed within two years prior to applying for a SmartCard.

Upgrades carry the expiry date of the SmartCard the applicant is upgrading from. Health & safety training does not need to be retaken unless the candidate is applying for a SmartCard where a higher level of health & safety training would apply. If you upgrade within two years and your certificates are still valid you can be issued with a new 5-year expiry date unless the candidate is applying for a SmartCard where a higher level of health & safety training would apply.
