Level 1 Health & Safety in a Construction Environment

The Compass Level 1 Award Health & Safety in a Construction Environment qualification is aimed at those looking to gain their Green CSCS Card.  The benefit of taking this qualification instead of the CITB one day course is that you won’t need to re-take this course when your CSCS card expires.   You will only need to take your CSCS test to renew your card.

The qualification is delivered online and at our venues in Chorley and London.  How does it work?

When you enrol, you are provided with a logon to our online platform, MyQual.  This guides you through:

  • Your introduction to your qualification
  • Some videos to watch with online quizes to check your knowledge 

When you have completed these you call or email to book onto the half day session in Chorley or London, or you can pay the additional £25 for a 1-1 Zoom session.

Candidate need to be at least 16 years old.  There are no other formal entry requirements although you do need to be in a role carrying out this work so you can be assessed. If you are new to the role you will still be able to enrol onto the qualification although it may talk you longer to complete it.
