CSCS to end NVQ exemptions for CITB HS&E Test from 2 September 2019

The CSCS skills card scheme is ending an exemption to the CITB health, safety and environment test following the consultation with its partners including the CITB. Normally, most applicants are required to achieve a recognised construction related qualification (usually an NVQ or SVQ) as well as pass the CITB safety test within the last two years.

CITB health, safety and environment test

If applicants have achieved an SVQ or NVQ within the last two years they currently do not have to sit the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test.

CSCS’s Director of Operations Gordon Jenkins commented saying: “ CSCS are bound by the requirements of the Industrial Strategy for Construction. The Industrial Strategy is overseen by the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) who, in 2015, announced that all card schemes displaying the CSCS logo should only issue skilled cards to applicants who hold nationally recognised construction related qualifications and have passed a separate health and safety element.

Accepting the recent completion of an SVQ or NVQ as an exemption to taking the test is no longer in step with the wishes of the industry and as such the exemption will be withdrawn.”
