At Chameleon School of Construction we are able to offer the Health and Safety and Environment test and also the Level 1 Health and Safety in the Construction Environment qualification, which is the qualification needed to obtain a full 5 year Labouring CSCS card.  We offer a flexible, friendly service with free car parking at our Swadlincote Centre, 4a Boardman Road, Swadlincote, South Derbyshire DE11 9DL. The cost to take the test is £40 of which a £19.50 fee is paid directly to CSCS. Chameleon School of Construction is an independent test centre that offers the testing facility. Once you have passed the test, you will need to call CSCS in order to obtain the card a fee of £30 is applicable and paid directly to CITB.

The CITB flagship Health, Safety and Environment test (HSE); and Triple Bar Nuclear New Build Sites (TBNNBS) test will increase in price from 1 September 2015. The price of the CITB’s flagship Health, Safety and Environment test is increasing to £19.50 after 10 years of being held at £17.50 but remains excellent value for money. This is the first increase since 2005, during which time the test has evolved to include changes in legislation/best practice and the inclusion of a section dedicated to environmental knowledge.  This will effect Chameleon’s prices and we will also be increasing our fees September 2015. As of September 1st 2015 our test price will be £40.

If you are applying for a Green Labourer’s Card you need to be aware of changes implemented from 1st July 2014

Green Card Changes

From 1st July 2014 the green Construction Site Operative (CSO) card is no longer being issued. There is a new green CSCS card only available for people working in labouring occupations.

If you have a green CSO this will be valid until its expiry date after which you will need to achieve either a Level 1 Award in Health and safety in a Construction Environment which you can undertake at Chameleon as a distance learning course or a one day Site Safety Plus Certificate before being able to take the Health and Safety and Environment test.
