Setting Out film

All CITB HS&E tests include 12 behavioural case study questions, designed to test how you respond to health and safety situations on construction sites.

The questions are based on the 10 principles that are established in our Setting Out film, which you need to watch before you take your test.

Setting Out details the safety measures that workers can expect employers to take on their behalf, and offers tips on how workers can promote a safer working environment.
