CSCS Health and Safety Mock Test

This CSCS health and safety mock test is designed to test your knowledge of a wide variety of health and safety topics within the construction industry.

Regardless of which CSCS card you’re applying for you are required to have a basic understanding of good health and safety practices when onsite because you’re not only responsible for keeping yourself safe but your colleagues as well through careful observations and detailed reporting of any unsafe working practices you may come across.

Having a CSCS card proves that you are aware of on-site hazards and you’re capable of performing your duties in the safest way possible, most construction sites in the UK are now insisting that their workers take the CSCS health and safety test to gain their CSCS card regardless of their job roles.

Workers are not the only ones required to have a CSCS card when on-site, visitors who regularly visit sites will also need a CSCS card before they’re allowed on-site.
