Being a labourer on a construction site is the first rung on the ladder for anyone looking to enter the building industry but gone are the days where you can just walk onto site straight out of school. The industry is becoming more and more regimented to try and eliminate the health and safety risks associated with the job, so there are now qualifications that must be completed before you can take up the role. All labourers must now have a CSCS Green Labourers card before they are permitted onto a construction site. To get our hands on this valuable passport into the industry, you first need to undertake a CITB health and safety training course, before you can apply and APT can help you obtain a CSCS Green Labourers Card in Stoke.
What Do I Need?
There are a variety of courses that can be undertaken to gain a CSCS Green Labourers Card, with one of those being the CITB Health and Safety Awareness Training course. The chosen programme of study must be completed at an approved test centre in order to count towards your application and must have been completed within the last two years. If you need to take your first course or do a refresher n order to meet the new requirements, APT run their CITB health and safety training course on a weekly basis and what’s more we are an approved CITB test centre and can even be found on their directory for recommended training providers.
As an approved training organisation (ATO) by the Construction Industry Training Board companies within the industry are able to claim money back if they have completed a CITB training course with us! If you’re a construction site manager and your team of labourers are not yet equipped with a CSCS Green Labourers Card, you can sign them up for our CITB health and safety training courses either individually or as a group on one of our closed courses, to get them started on their CSCS Green Labourers card application. The more people under your watch with a relevant qualification not only means improved standards on site but also means additional money can be claimed back for the business!
