One of the advantages of working in construction is that you can start without any qualifications and work your way up. All you need is a CSCS Green Card, which proves that you have the basic health and safety knowledge required to work on site. You can obtain your CSCS Green Card by taking an online course with Safe2Site, which covers topics such as hazards, risks, accidents, fire prevention, manual handling and more. Once you have your CSCS Green Card, you can access construction sites and start working on various projects.
