The Construction Industry

Construction is a high hazard industry which comprises a wide range of activities involving plans, design, constructs, alteration, maintains, repairs and eventually demolishing buildings.

Many individuals seek employment as a Labourer, due to the hazardous nature of the role the UK require all workers to have a knowledge in Health and Safety on a work site.

Construction labourers roles are there to prepare building sites, maintain safety clean up  and carry out manual jobs once work starts they will also be involved in the cleaning up of a site once work has completed.

Jobchange offer Construction courses to enable individuals onto a site safely part of the Jobchange CSCS course is to obtain a mandatory card.

A CSCS Card is mandatory for anyone wanting to work within the construction industry. Jobchange have been delivering this qualification for many years, offering two different types of card including a red provisional card and a green labourers card.

A frequently asked question amongst our customers is ‘How long do they last for’ Well, the Green Labourers Card is valid for 5 years whilst the Red Provisional Card is valid for just 6 months. The only difference between obtaining a 5 year card and a 6 month card is having a construction related qualification.

Sometimes, our customers are in instant need of a card therefore, attending CSCS Card practice sessions and working towards the provisional. Whereas, some of our customers can attend our Level 1 Health and Safety in Construction course and CSCS Card Practice sessions, allowing them to obtain a 5 year card. It all depends on the individual’s needs.

I guess you are probably thinking ‘Why does a CSCS Card expire?’. Getting a brand new card involves passing the relevant CITB Health, Safety & Environment Test again – thereby updating your health and safety knowledge in the process. So, in a way, it’s CSCS’s way of ensuring and improving safety on construction sites in ever-changing work conditions.
