Construction Skills Health & Safety Test
All candidates participating on CPCS Technical Tests need to successfully complete the appropriate ConstructionSkills Health & Safety Test before any CPCS Technical Test begins. This test helps to raise standards across the industry. It ensures that workers have a minimum level of health, safety and environmental awareness before going on site. It should be used as a stepping stone encouraging employers and their workforce to go on and develop their knowledge even further.
All tests last for 45 minutes and have 50 multiple-choice questions. The minimum entry level for most categories is the ‘CSCS Operators’ test. However, for the A61 Appointed Person (Lifting Operations) category candidates need to pass the ‘CSCS Managers & Professionals test and for the A62 Crane Lifting Operations Supervisor the entry level is ‘CSCS Supervisory’.
