Green card changes

Published: September 24, 2013

From 1st July 2014 the green Construction Site Operative (CSO) card is no longer being issued.  There is a new green CSCS card only available for people working in labouring occupations.

CSCS’ role is to provide a scheme for the construction industry that confirms site workers’ training and qualifications.  Many site workers who are carrying out skilled occupations have been applying for the green CSO card as the easiest route to gain access to construction sites.  This makes it difficult for contractors to use CSCS cards as a reliable method of checking that site workers have the appropriate skills to work on construction sites safely and effectively.

More information is available on the CSCS website green card changes web pages.
