Got your Green Card sorted?
As of 1st July 2014 the green CSO card (Construction Site Operative ) ceases to be issued. A new green CSCS card will take its place and will only be available for labouring occupations. The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) is making changes for obtaining a Green Card (Labourer Card). These new requirements state that along with the ConstructionSkills Health, Safety and Environment (HS&E) Test, a qualification (or alternative) must be achieved in order to apply for the Green Card.
The purpose of the new Green Card is to regulate the construction industry so that labourers/site workers' training and qualifications are monitored effectively. Many site workers in skilled occupations have been applying for the green CSO card so they can shortcut access to construction sites. Have a green CSO card? We can get you updated!
