Working Safely is a one-day course for people at any level, in any sector, needing a grounding of health and safety. It focuses on why health and safety is important and how you can make a real difference to the wellbeing of yourself, and others through changing your behaviour. It focuses on best practice rather than legislation.

The course is a 100% match to the Health and Safety Executive’s ‘Passport’ syllabus. Working Safely is an eligible qualification to apply for a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) Green Labourer Card (see info below).

On passing, delegates will be awarded an IOSH Working Safely certificate, which will be posted to you by Signed for Recorded Delivery. Please note: IOSH can take up to 6 weeks to process certificates.

CSCS Card Information

Delegates who successfully complete the course can apply for a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) Green Labourer Card once they’ve passed the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Operatives Test. Working safely is recognised as an equivalent to a level 1 award in health and safety in a construction environment.

Candidates who urgently need to apply for a CSCS card can apply for a temporary card in the meantime and then apply for the Green Card once they have successfully completed the course and the CSCS test.

The provisional card lasts for six months and is not renewable.
