CSCS Mock Test 3

Written by admin. Posted in CSCS Mock Test

To help ensure safety and to mitigate risk while on a job site, millions of construction workers in the United Kingdom will take what is known as the CSCS Health and Safety Test. CSCS or the Construction Skills Certification Scheme has become a vital part in ensuring workers are competent in their knowledge of onsite health and safety practices. Most construction sites in the UK will require a valid cscs card before they even let you onsite and the only way of getting a cscs card is to pass the CITB Health Safety and Environment Test.

The CSCS Health and Safety Test is ultimately designed to increase awareness regarding the best practices on and around construction sites so it will naturally cover all aspects of physical responsibility including but not limited to electrical knowledge, proper use of equipment, chemical hazards and accident reporting are just a few to mention.

The Health Safety and Environment Test will be in a multiple choice format very much like the practice test below, each question will require 1 or more answers depending on the question requirements. So, let us have a quick look at some sample CSCS test questions to get a bit of practice.
