Changes to the Health, Safety and Environment Test

The Health, Safety and Environment (HS&E) test for the construction industry is being updated on 26 June 2019.

The HS&E test helps to raise the health, safety and environment standards for those working in the construction industry – giving assurance that the workforce, and those they work alongside are well prepared to be safe on the job.

The updates CITB are making on the 26 June 2019 are the result of two and half years working with industry and experts in other fields to ensure that the HS&E test continues to be fair, valid and reliable. If you are taking the test after the 26 June 2019, you will need to purchase the updated revision materials which are available from 15 May 2019.
