The British Safety Council has launched a new health and safety qualification which can be used to obtain a CSCS Green Card.
The Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment is aimed at people seeking work or already working in non-skilled roles in the construction industry.
Designed to be delivered by employers, private training providers, schools and colleges, the qualification is said provide essential knowledge and understanding of health and safety hazards and precautions.
Successful completion of the qualification enables learners to apply for the Construction Skills Certificate Scheme (CSCS) Green Card (Labourer), which provides access to UK construction sites as a non-skilled worker.
