About the test
Different tests have been created to meet the needs of different trades and professions.
Make sure you prepare and take the right one.
If you are taking the HS&E test for a card to access construction sites, be sure to check the

multiple-choice questions made up of behavioural case studies and knowledge questions to
check your understanding of how to behave on site and raise your awareness of health,
safety and environmental issues.
All tests include the behavioural case study questions and the five core knowledge sections of:
