CPCS Plant Operative Health, Safety and Environment Test

The CPCS Plant Operative Health, Safety and Environment Test is a requirement for initial CPCS cards and for card renewals.

The test has been designed to support learners to improve their knowledge and gain an in depth understanding of issues surrounding health, safety and environment within construction and plant. The learning materials and test are available to purchase through the NOCN Group Hub.

The operator can undertake their learning and take the test at a time and location which best suits their needs. The result of the test will be available on the candidate record and viewable on the NOCN Job Cards online Card Checker.
