About The Course

Course Overview

Who Should Attend?

From 1 April 2019 CSR will no longer issue any new or renewal General Construction Operative (GCO) cards. GCO cards issued up to 31 March 2019 will continue to be valid for 4 years from the date of the health and safety training.

CSR Labourer card

A new CSR Labourer card was introduced on 1 April 2019. Applicants must complete the CSR one day health and safety course and have an employer declaration completed to confirm they are working in a labouring occupation. The card will be valid for 4 years from the date of the health and safety training.

If you do not have an employer declaration you can get a temporary skills not assessed card, please note this is only valid for one year.

Card holders whose GCO cards expire from 1 April 2019 should apply for a Labourer card, if they meet the requirements above, or another CSR card that is more appropriate for the job role they carry out.

Historically GCO cards have been issued to construction related occupations that do not fall under the remit of the Joint Council for the Building and Civil Engineering Industry (Northern Ireland), the owner of the scheme. These occupations including electricians, plumbers, heating and ventilation and gas installation will not be eligible for a Labourer card when it is launched in April 2019. Other CSCS partner card schemes are available for these occupations.

Health & Safety Trained Card 

CSR introduced a Health and Safety Trained card on 1 April 2019. This card provides evidence of appropriate health and safety training only and does not display the card holder’s occupation. Candidates must complete the CSR one day health and safety course to be eligible for this card which will be valid for 4 years from the date of the health and safety training.

The Buildsafe-NI Action Plan (2011) requires all site operatives and staff to have appropriate health and safety training. Government Construction Clients must include this as a contract requirement. The Health and Safety Trained Card will meet this obligation for operatives. It will also be accepted in the Republic of Ireland as a result of the mutual recognition agreement that deems the CSR one day health and safety course to be equivalent to the Safe Pass one day course.

It is important to note however that this card will not meet the CLC One Industry Logo requirements and therefore WILL NOT be accepted in GB.

All CSR card types and their requirements can be viewed on the card types section of the CEF website.

Once you have confirmed your booking online, one of the ETT team will contact you to confirm which card you are eligible for.
