Who needs to pass the ECA H&S Assessment

The majority of UK construction sites will require onsite workers and site visitors to have achieved an appropriate level of health and safety knowledge before they are permitted to enter construction areas. Due to this requirement, the ECS card scheme requires all those applying for cards to hold or obtain a minimum level of health and safety knowledge.

The ECS H&S assessment is required by all candidates applying for an ECS card who do not have an exemption to the test. 

If you are unsure about your eligibility for an ECS card and which H&S assessment you should undertake, please visit the ECS card website, No responsibility can be accepted for candidates who book and undertake the wrong test and no refund will be given in such circumstances.

Bookings to take the ECS Health and Safety (H&S) Assessment can be made by an individual or by a business on behalf of multiple employees.

How will I be assessed?

Computer based assessment with instant results.  Passing an ECS health and safety assessment is compulsory prior to submitting an application for an ECS card, unless the candidate holds a recognised health and safety qualification which exempts them.

How much does it cost?
