FAQs about CSR Card Training Courses
What is a CSR card?
Who is CSR card training for?
What type of CSR card is best for me?
Individuals can determine the most appropriate type of CSR card by considering their occupation and level of experience. Those who hold a trade, which can be verified by a level 2 or 3 NVQ, qualify for the blue or gold card, respectively. If the worker is a labourer, the green labourers’ card is available to suit this occupation. Finally, there is a generic card called the white health and safety trained card for everyone else. This card type is often chosen by tradespersons, such as electricians and plumbers, who do not have an occupational card type under the CEF scheme. It is also often utilised by those who only periodically visit sites, such as suppliers, security personnel or delivery drivers. For full details on all of the CSR card types, check out the CEF website by clicking here.
