Product number: OHSE_TOUCH_TESTE|SW10058

The CITB Health, Safety and Environment (HS&E) test is an important way for construction workers to provide evidence that they can be safe on the job. It's also a way for them to know that their fellow workers are safe on the site and not put them at risk of injury.

For employers, having workers who've passed the CITB HS&E test is assurance that their workforce is, and will continue to be safe at work.

About the Operatives HS&E test

The Operatives test provides workers with a minimum level of health, safety and environmental awareness before going on site.

To be able to apply for a CSCS Labourers Green card, delegates will need to successfully complete the Operatives HS&E test and the Site Safety Plus Health & Safety Awareness course, holding both valid certificates. CSCS cards provide proof that individuals working on construction sites have the appropriate training and qualifications for the job they do on site, and contractors or clients in the UK require workers to hold a card before they are granted access to a site.

Available in other languages upon request.

The HS&E Operatives test is made up of 50 questions covering five core knowledge areas:

  • Legal and management
  • Health and welfare
  • General safety
  • High risk activities
  • Environment

Delegates will have 45 minutes to answer the 50 questions. The test now includes new question styles. Behavioural case studies are also used in the test to check a delegate's understanding of health, safety and environmental issues, and how to behave safely on-site.

It is highly recommended that delegates complete the Site Safety plus Health & Safety Awareness course PRIOR to taking the HS&E test, as the Site Safety Plus course will provide the knowledge required to pass the HS&E test.

However, there is a range of revision materials to help you prepare for the HS&E test from printed booklets that you can purchase in a bookshop, to smartphone apps that help you revise on the go.

To increase your chances of passing the test, we recommend that you work through all the sample questions in the revision materials. Ensure you are confident with the topics and questions before you turn up for your test.

Revision Materials

Before you take the HS&E test, we recommend you watch the Setting Out video below.

All versions of the HS&E test include 12 behavioural case study questions. These questions are based on 10 principles and are designed to test how you respond to health and safety situations on a construction site.
