CSCS Labourer (Green) Card

The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) Labourer’s Card provides validation that the individual holding it has completed the required training to enable them to undertake work as a labourer on a construction site within the United Kingdom.

The card demonstrates that the holder has undertaken appropriate training and assists employers in demonstrating compliance with health and safety regulations.

Why Do I need a CSCS Labourer Card?

If you want to work in construction, you are going to need a CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) card providing assurance that you have aquired the necessary level of knowledge to operate safely on a construction site.  Whilst it is not a legal requirement to hold a CSCS card many construction site employers require their employees and sub contractors to hold valid CSCS Cards.  It demonstrates that individuals have undertaken appropriate training and assists in demonstrating compliance with health and safety regulations.
