Health, Safety and Environment Test (Formerly CSCS Test)


This test ensures workers have a minimum level of health, safety and environmental awareness before going on site. The test should be a stepping stone for employers and their workforce to develop their knowledge even further.

The test consists of:

  • 12 behavioural case study questions about how you should behave on a construction site to stay safe
  • 38 knowledge questions to check your awareness of health, safety and environment issues
  • 3 case study questions

Different tests have been developed to meet the demands of different trades and professions. You will need to make sure that you take and prepare for the right one. If you are taking the CITB Health, Safety and Environment test to gain a card for access to construction sites please ensure you have checked the scheme requirements to apply for a card to ensure you are booking the correct level of test.
