CSR Health & Safety
|Aim of Course||The CSR Scheme aims to raise health and safety standards and reduce risks and accidents in the industry by ensuring that all construction workers undertake health and safety training every 4 years. Applicants receive a photographic identity card which provides proof of their health and safety training and their skills and qualifications, if appropriate.|
|Awarding body||Construction Employers Federation – CEF|
|Who should attend||Any person that needs to gain access to construction sites throughout the United Kingdom. The CSR card has become the industry standard in Northern Ireland.
We understand however that many companies work outside Northern Ireland. With this in mind the CSR scheme has a number of agreements with similar schemes in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland to ensure that CSR cards are accepted in these jurisdictions.
The Solas Safe Pass Health and Safety Awareness Programme operates in the Republic of Ireland. CSR has signed a mutual recognition agreement with Solas which means the CSR one day health and safety course is the only course recognised as equivalent to the Solas Safe Pass course.
The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) operates in the United Kingdom. CSR has signed an Affiliation Agreement with CSCS so CSR cards are accepted in the UK.
|Course outcome||For employees:
• Proof of skills, competence and qualifications
• Improved health and safety awareness
• Enhanced employment prospects as a CSR card is increasingly required by contractors, clients and government
|Course Syllabus||The Health and Safety course covers 11 modules:
|The CSR Health & Safety Training Scheme is one-day safety awareness training, followed by multiple choice text.
Occupational assessment will be required for Blue & Gold card upgrades to ensure competency.
