    The HS&E test

    You will need to make sure that you take and prepare for the right one. If you are taking the CITB Health, safety and environment test to gain a card for access to construction sites please ensure you have checked the scheme requirements to ensure you are booking the correct level of test. 

    Cornerbrook Lifting Consultants Limited can now offer the HS&E test at its centre in Rossendale, BB4 6JY.

    The following tests are available here at
    Cornerbrook Lifting Consultants:

    The operatives test examines HS&E awareness, helping to raise standards across the industry by ensuring all workers meet a minimum level of health, safety, and environmental awareness. It lasts 45 minutes and is comprised of 50 questions made up of both behavioural case studies and knowledge questions. A pass mark above 90% is required.

    Specialist tests are taken in a variety of fields. They include questions surrounding the five core knowledge areas in addition to additional questions relevant to the specialist area(s) chosen and require a pass mark above 90% correct. The Specialists test is available in each of the following topics:

    • Supervisory (SUP)
    • Demolition (DEM)
    • Plumbing or gas (PLUM)
    • Highway works (HIW)
    • Specialist work at height (WAH)
    • Lifts and escalators (LAEE)
    • Tunnelling (TUNN)
    • HVACR – Heating and plumbing services (HAPS)
    • HVACR – Pipefitting and welding (PFW)
    • HVACR – Ductwork (DUCT)
    • HVACR – Refrigeration and air conditioning (RAAC)
    • HVACR – Services and facilities maintenance (SAF)

    The test must be completed in 45 minutes and requires a pass mark above 90%.

    The final type of touchscreen test is the Renewal Test (RT). The RT is similar to the previously mentioned Health, Safety and Environment test; however, it is used to renew a CPCS Blue Competent Operator Card. Renewal tests take 15 minutes and consist of 15 multiple choice questions about the category of plant machinery that you have chosen to renew. Candidates are required to take tests for each group of categories listed on their card.
