Here is a free App which may help any delegates wanting to revise for their CITB Health & Safety Awareness course and/or Touch Screen test for their Green Labourer card. To find out more just watch the short video below.
The HSE have announced that as from 31 December all first aid course delivered will also require the training in the safe use of an automated external defibrillator.

The type of card you apply for depends on the occupation you do. You can find out which card you need by going to the CITB Card finder link – https://www.cscs.uk.com/card-finder/ – this card finder link will help you choose which CSCS card you need to apply for and which CITB Health, Safety and Environment text you need to book based on your occupation.
In most cases you will need to have passed the CITB Health, Safety and Environment test within the last two years and costs £19.50. Exemptions can be found at www.cscs.uk.com/test
If you’re an individual applying for your own card, the quickest way is to phone the CITB on 0344 994 4777, you’ll need a bank card and the order will be processed whilst you are on the phone. Cost £30.
If you’re an employer applying for a card or cards on behalf of individuals, these must be processed online at www.cscs.uk.com/employer. £30 per person, unless you have a CITB account, the CITB will phone you to take payment over the phone.
We often get asked this question, so whilst there are no hard and fast rules that the HSE lay down, they have published this on their website which explains all the factors you need to think about before deciding what First Aid course is best for you. http://www.hse.gov.uk/firstaid/needs-assessment.htm
I would also advise that you go to whoever you are working for to see what they advise. At the end of the day the questions best asked is if something did happen on site, would you be able to deal with it? If you were in court because of an incident, would the judge think the training you had be adequate?
Whatever route you decide upon, we would be happy to help you with either course as follows:
