Construction Professionals Health and Safety Card Course

09 October 2018

If you need to get a Construction Professionals Health and Safety (CPHS) card or a Construction Skills Register card for the first time, or if your card is up for renewal you are invited to attend the upcoming CPHS Card Health and Safety Training Course.  

The CPHS card, or equivalent, is required to work on any public sector construction site in Northern Irelandand 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.  

This 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.
