CSCS Health & Safety (Construction Skills Certification Scheme)




CSCS is the UK's leading skills certification scheme for the construction industry.

Our SNIJIB CSCS Grade Cards are proof of opertaives having passed a recognised health & safety test.

Your SNIJIB CSCS Grade Card expires every 5 years, when your CSCS date does.

In order to renew your SNIJIB CSCS Grade Card, you must therefore pass a new CSCS health and safety test.
