CSCS Card Test

This CSCS card test contains questions relating to a wide variety of topic that affect your health and safety at work, all the questions are intended for users with basic health and safety knowledge. The real test does not have any true or false questions but we’ve added a few just to mix things up a bit.

Having a good understanding of basic health and safety concepts will without a doubt improve the level and standard of safety in every working environment. Health and safety affects us all, and we all have a part to play in ensuring everyone goes home safe and injury free at the end of every day.

It’s important for us to realize that everything we do can have a negative effect on someone else, simple tasks such as sanding a window can have devastating effects on your neighbour who might unknowingly inhale the dust and cause mild or even sever breathing problems.
