The HS&E test helps to raise the health, safety and environment standards for those working in the construction industry – giving you the assurance that your workforce, and those they work alongside are well prepared to be safe on the job. It’s about protecting people – it’s that simple.

The updates that take effect 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.

New updated revision materials will be available for purchase from 15 May 2019 to aid those taking the test after the 26 June 2019.

CITB’s delivery of the test ensures that the safety of the British construction workforce is at the heart of what they do. Their close links with industry means that their finger is on the pulse, and as the construction industry evolves; the HS&E test is evolving too.
