Changes to the CITB HS&E test for Managers & Professionals (MAP)

Published: May 5, 2023

On 27 June 2023, CITB are making important changes to the Health, Safety & Environment test for Managers and Professionals.

To ensure that the test remains relevant, fit for purpose, and reflects changes made to legislation, working practices and new technology, CITB have updated both the test and the revision materials.

About the changes

Managers and professionals in the construction industry are responsible for complying with, embedding and implementing effective HS&E practices.

To support this, CITB are:

• updating and extending the range of subjects covered in the test
• updating existing questions and adding new ones
• updating our revision materials.

What new subjects will the test be covering?

The test already covers six key areas, including:

• Legal and management
• Health and welfare
• General safety
• High risk activities
• Environment
• Specialist activities

However, based on industry feedback, six additional subjects that are all hugely relevant to today’s managers – and the managers of the future – have been included:

• Mental health
• Leadership
• Occupational health governance
• Behavioural safety
• New technologies
• Improving legislative compliance.

Revision materials

CITB strongly recommend that all candidates revise to give themselves the best chance of passing their test.

If a candidate is taking the test on or after 27 June 2023, they will need to ensure that they are using the new revision materials, which have been developed to align with the changes to the test.

These new revision materials will be available from 2 May 2023 via the CITB Shop. All revision material will be clearly labelled and signposted with the latest version number, so they can be assured that they are getting the right revision material for their test.

There is also a handy app that can be download from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. The app, which costs £6.99, can be used to take mock tests in advance of a scheduled test.
