CSCS Mock Test (100 Multiple Choice Questions)

The CSCS mock test below consists of 100 multiple choice questions covering all the areas you will need to know to pass your Health, Safety and Environment test. The questions in this practice test are similar to the ones you can find on our latest 2019 mock exam here, the only difference is the amount of questions we’ve assigned.

As with all our CSCS mock tests, there is no time limit, so please ensure you read through each question carefully, as some may require multiple answers. Note: If a question requires multiple answers and you only give one correct answer it will not award a full mark for that question. Good luck!!!
