Half Day Construction Professionals Health & Safety Card Course

12 March 2018

RSUA has launched a new half day course to obtain or renew your Construction Professional Health and Safety (CPHS) Card.  
 
The CPHS card, or equivalent, is required to work on any public sector construction site in Northern Ireland and must be renewed every 4 years. It is worthwhile checking the date of your current CPHS or CSR card to ensure it is still valid.  

The Buildsafe NI initiative states that everyone “visiting a site shall have received appropriate health and safety training to be able to work on-site without being a risk to themselves or others who might be affected by their acts or omissions and carry with them on site, evidence of having received such training.”  

The CPHS card is regarded as appropriate evidence.  

The primary local alternative card provider is the Construction Skills Register (CSR). CSR stopped issuing Architect CSR cards in September 2017 and now offer different routes to acquiring a CSR card.  

The new half day CPHS Course is focused on providing construction professionals with “appropriate health and safety training to be able to work on-site without being a risk to themselves or others who might be affected by their acts or omissions”, The course will cover some fundamentals and will also highlight any relevant changes in H&S practice in recent years.
